Burial will be in Beaufort National Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to a veteran organization of your choice. 

Tyler was born on September 6, 1988. He was the son of Timothy Collier and Jamie Maddox Collier. He graduated from Summerville High School as well as graduating with honors and as valedictorian from ECPI University with a bachelor's degree in business. He was a manager at Palmetto Goodwill. Tyler was an army veteran, a hard worker, and a great and loving dad to his daughter, Bristol.  He was an only child, but his cousins were more like his brother and sisters, and their children lovingly called him "Uncle Tyler." 

He loved to goof off and joke around. He loved anything Viking, WWE, and Monster Trucks.

Some fondest memories shared: His daughter Bristol said she enjoyed going to the mall with her dad and getting spoiled with things from Claire's and also getting dressed up like Princess Belle and going to see the Disney Princesses and going to Monster Jam events. 

Several of his friends said- "He was a great friend!"

Tyler's mom - "He was my baby boy, and I loved him so much."

Tyler's dad - "I was always proud of him. His accomplishments as an adult exceeded expectations."

 He LOVED his Aunt Chris's Blueberry Yum Yum and looked forward to it every Thanksgiving!

His cousins shared-  He and Mema would pick on all of us girls when we would watch the movie Selena and needed an entire box of tissues during the sad part. He used to say as kids that "girls don't fart or sweat!"  He wasn't just my cousin. He was a brother to me. 

He would always say that Mema loved her grandkids but would chase Flynn around the house with a fly swatter. 

I have many memories of us going to Frankie's Fun Park, the first time we went on the go carts I didn't know start and stop pedals and plowed through all the other carts in front of me. 

His favorite movie was Major Payne and could recite the entire movie!

Tyler and Flynn would watch wrestling together and then try wrestling moves on each other. 

Tyler always had my back. He always had the best smile and bear hugs! He was such an amazing and beautiful person. 

I enjoyed it when he came to visit me when I worked at Kickin Chicken, it always made my day. He and my husband had an amazing relationship and loved hanging out together. 

Tyler was so easy to get along with. He welcomed everyone he met with his open arms. He was always the first to strike conversation. Any lull in silence-he had something to say.

He was one of a kind. Friend to many. He left a mark on everyone he met.

I remember the day Bristol was born. He was so proud and happy to be a daddy and was ecstatic that she was his twin. 

From Bristol's mom- He was always an amazing dad to our daughter. He loved her more than anything. He would have tea parties and play Barbies with her. He even painted her toenails for her sometimes, and would let her to paint his, which he would proudly show off wearing his flip flops. She was the apple of his eye, and she had him wrapped around her little finger.

We will all cherish all of the memories we have shared and more. He will be greatly missed and forever loved by so many.
