Tyler David Sheriff, 30, went to be with Jesus and his father, Dave, on Aug. 14, 2015, after battling cancer. He was born on Sept. 16, 1984, in Indianapolis, the son of Dave and Ellen Sheriff. He attended Carmel High School and graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2007, where he was a member of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity.
Tyler was known for his passion for life, compassion for others and a strong desire to succeed. He inspired those he touched to be better, live happier, shine brighter, soar higher and love harder. His family is confident heaven just welcomed home one of its best.
Tyler is survived by his wife, Deborah; mother, Ellen; stepfather, Joe; sister, Jamie and her daughter, Braelyn; and grandmother, Margaret. He also leaves a large extended family of many loving uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and colleagues.
Memorial services will be at 11 a.m. Sept. 6 at Flanner and Buchanan – Carmel, 325 East Carmel Drive. Visitation will be from 9:30 a.m. until the time of service. In lieu of flowers, Tyler’s family says, “Tyler would hope that you do an unexpected act of kindness, really listen and engage in something being told to you, or serve as a mentor to someone in his name.”
