Georgetown - On Monday, July 1st, 2019, Tayler Joseph Locke passed away at the age of 26.

Tayler was born in Grand Rapids, MI and called many places home throughout his life. Growing up, Tayler had dreams of being a police officer, a video game designer or, preferably, the Green Ranger. He loved animals and anime, comics and superheroes, and found comfort in drawing.  Tayler had a vast imagination, and a uniquely creative soul. He filled his days with art, exploring nature with his two boys, going on cinematic adventures with his wife, and snuggling his family dog - whom he was best friends with. Tayler brought joy, comfort, humor, and support to the lives of his loved ones.

Tayler was loved by his family, encouraged to be true to himself, and supported in all the good he sought after. He was capable of wonderful things, and pushed himself to be a father that led

with love and humor. We loved and supported him in life, and we'll continue to in death. Thank you, Tayler, for opening our eyes to the beauty and contrasting nature of the world.

Tayler is survived by his wife, Jordan, and their two children, Aiden and Finnegan; his Father, Telly, and Bonus Mom, LeAnne; his siblings Shawna, and Colt, his in-laws Jason and Cheryl, his

Grandmother's Dianne and Sherry and his Mother Charity, among numerous loved ones.
