Memorial for Teyran "Ty" Patterson

Memorial for Teyran Patterson

Today was the memorial service for a local hero. His name is Teyran Patterson and he is the son of friends of ours. Ty served as a game warden and though I did not know him personally, I wanted to post a tribute to a young man whom the community loves so much. The Patterson family and local officials expected about 1000 people to attend the service, standing room only at our coliseum. It is a statement of what Ty meant to Seguin and to his colleagues in law enforcement.

Update June 5th: the local paper today states that about 2100 people attended Ty's memorial service.

Ty was a friend, a brother, a true image of what a hero should be. You will be missed Ty, but never forgotten. I have so many memories from Little League to High School, to your smile and your laugh. God now has an amazing angel next to him and I will always see and hear you in my prayers. Till we meet again, your friend, Valdo D. III

I read that he saved a friend from drowning before drowning himself, Thien. He earned his hero status, that's for sure.

Yes, Annie, it was his partner and friend.
