Growing up Tyson enjoyed attending basketball summer camps at the university of Maine in Orono, riding his four-wheeler with all of his friends and camping trips with the family. He grew a lifelong passion for playing the drums and guitar which he loved playing for his family, especially his daughters. Tyson was good at everything he set his mind to. As he grew older one of his most prized accomplishments was becoming a father to his 2 beautiful Daughters Angel and Rosie who he loved dearly. He also was pretty proud of becoming an uncle. Tyson was an expert gardener and loved spending time outdoors. He was a carpenter by trade and was so proud of the 2 log cabins he most recently built by hand. Tyson was born with a soft spot for animals which he inherited from his grandfather John. He held all of the family pets close to his heart. Tyson was a Christian at heart who enjoyed reading the Bible and praying with his family and was always stressing the importance of God to those closest to him. Tyson and his wife Lauren were recently Baptized together at the Bangor Rock Church.
