On Wednesday, August 2, 2023, The Most High called him home to claim his glory. Tawoyn, also affectionately and well known as “Ty”, was a lifelong resident of Lansing. He graduated from Everett High School in June 1997, Ty was very spiritual and despite what life threw at him he always maintained high spirits and a positive attitude. Ty was a loving son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend. He always placed family first, especially his sister, Felicia, and there were no limits to his protection of them. Ty will most be remembered for his joking ways, big, warm heartedness, loyalty, honor, commitment, and dedication to family and friends.
