Memorial Gifts & Donations




Tyrus Mark Snyder, born in Logan, UT, on January 19, 1996, passed away peacefully in his home on December 23, 2023, in Wilmington, NC. Ty was a loving, funny, and hard-working man who loved playing games, eating good food, and spending time with his family, friends, and dog (Sammy). On any day of the week, you could find Tyrus hard at work with his dad, listening to music and dancing with his mom, playing jokes on his sister, horsing around with his brother-in-law, or playing Uno or Yahtzee with his numerous friends and family members. Ty brought out the best in people; we call him our “golden boy” because no matter where we went, people went out of their way to show kindness to Ty (like paying for his meal or giving him a whole bucket of fresh-caught Walleye). He was a connector of people and was happiest when all his friends and family were in one place.

Tyrus had many accomplishments during his life. He was an adventurous sailor, sailing from the United States to the Bahamas with his Mom and Dad in 2021. He was also a dedicated athlete in the Special Olympics for over 20 years, earning hundreds of medals in swimming, track and field, skiing, bowling, and many other sports. He excelled at playing disc golf and bocce ball and had just started to learn to play pickleball. For the last year, Ty was a Café Assistant at Dub’s Café at UNCW and previously worked at Bitty and Beau’s as well as The Crepery in Logan, Utah.

Tyrus’ spirit and love continues to live through his Dad (Doug), Mom (Judy), twin sister (Aubrey), brother-in-law (Tyson), Nanny (Jenny), and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and coworkers in Minnesota, Utah, Nevada, Washington, and North Carolina. His family knows that Tyrus made friends everywhere he went and loves and appreciates each person who touched his life. We are especially grateful for the community of Cache Valley who loved and supported Ty in so many ways.

We will all miss our Ty and encourage his loved ones to enjoy a cheeseburger or ice cream in his memory.

    I was privileged enough to work for a few years with Ty at Summit Elementary in Smithfield, Utah. He had such a big personality! I was one of his cheerleaders that would encourage him to finish his work so he could go play basketball, or go to Music class! He seemed to always have a smile! I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. A little piece of him will always be in the hearts of those of us who were lucky enough to know Tyrus! Sending prayers of peace and love to your family.

    Ty was the sweetest and kindness guy you would ever want to meet. I loved watching him take daily walks with his mom, Judy or ride Mike's with Doug, his dad. I loved him wave a hello to me or let me give him hugs. He will be soarly missed. I love you Big Guy.

    OverviewLyricsVideosListenArtistsComposersOther recordings Like a comet Blazing 'cross the evening sky Gone too soon Like a rainbow Fading in the twinkling of an eye Gone too soon Shiny and sparkly And splendidly bright Here one day Gone one night Like the loss of sunlight On a cloudy afternoon Gone too soon Like a castle Built upon a sandy beach Gone too soon Like a perfect flower That is just beyond your reach Gone too soon Born to amuse, to inspire, to delight Here one day Gone one night Like a sunset Dying with the rising of the moon Gone too soon Gone too soon

    No words can describe how sorry I am to hear that Ty has passed. He was a Moose of a character and a gentle sensitive loving soul, who I am honored to have met (and his awesome family as well) and to have spent so much time with as his staff at Lindley Habilitation/Homecare and as a friend. We made many memories together, he was my partner in crime; from putting together puzzles, to playing video games, to fishing, to walking the dogs, to kicking butt at bowling, to making food, to playing disc golf, to eating burritos and hamburgers, hanging out with friends.... etc. etc. (The list of things we did goes on and on). We were always goofing off and finding ways to have fun, or just chill. I miss his smile, his goober-ness when he is trying to make us laugh, his angry faces when something does not sit right with him, his awesome hugs, and his way of connecting with us all. His love is his legacy, he truly was the Golden boy who can make a bad day into an awesome one. He surely will be missed, there will forever be a void in all our hearts that he has touched. Rest in peace my broski...... I love you man.
