Tyler ”TIP” Pozzuto, may you Rest In Peace forever. You will live on for the remainder of our presence on this earth. Your energy will never be forgotten. The way you laughed was contagious. Sometimes you used to act outrageous, but that was only because you were a genius and the bravest. Now we ask that you watch down on us from Heaven, because we know you made it and know you will always answer our calls to save us. Tip, you were one of a kind. Your loyalty and joy were unique and honest. From the kindness from your heart and soul you touched so many peoples’ lives and will be sadly missed by many.
