WORKED WITH TY IN ESC, AND HE WORKED FOR ME IN ESC AND WHEN HE
MOVED TO A DIFFERENT DEPARTMENT, HE CAME BACK TO MY DEPARTMENT
TO HELP ME OUT. WE TALKED ABOUT FAMILY AND HOW HE LOVED HIS

HIS LITTLE GIRL HOW SHE WRAPPED HIM AROUND HER LITTLE FINGER.
HE GAVE ME ADVICE AND I TRIED TO GIVE HIM ADVICE. I TRULY WILL
MISS MY FRIEND TY L. DECKER
I have only met Ty a few times, he left it no secret how much
his family meant to him. Since the night of Ty's accident, I
have felt grief, and sympathy for his wife, Dawn, and baby,
Dezzy. I wrote a poem about Dezzaray and her father... **Daddy
got a new job today, Jesus took him far away. His job is to
watch us from up above, and keep us filled with endless love.
When mommy told me he had to go, I was sad, but now I know,
Daddy's an angel, special as can be, my daddy was a great man,
and wow he loved me!** Good luck in the future, Dawn and Dezzy,
you're not alone. Ty's looking out for you both!
will remember Ty as a very polite young man. He always said
hello when he would see you. You think to yourself, A young
man like that can always take the time to say hello to you.
Why can't we all do that? It doesn't take much to just say
"hi" to your co-workers. It might be the last time
that you may be able too. Myself, I will miss that very much
just want you all to know that my thoughts and prayers are
with you during this trying time. Ty was a great person and a
wonderful friend. He will always be there with you, watching
over you, and taking care of you. He would want everyone to
remember him and smile and laugh. Keep the good times and
great memories alive. Dezzy, keep picking them daisys for your
always remember the way Ty made us all laugh. He was a
wonderful person with a good soul, and a wonderful brother to
Alan and Matt, and dad to Dezzy. He will be missed dearly. God
be with his friends and family in his time of need. Renae
