Sergeant Tyler Lynn Abbott passed from this life to his eternal home with the Lord unexpectedly, Friday, August 10th, 2012 at his residence following complications from recent surgery.
Born July 31st, 1983 in Auburn, California to Kennith and Shelly Abbott, Tyler and his family relocated to the Northeastern California community of Westwood at age two where he was raised and educated graduating from Westwood High School as a member of the "Class of 2001". Affectionately known as "T Rex" for his tenacity on the football field he was awarded the Westwood High Lumber Jack Coach's award his senior year. He had also competed in the Westwood Little League as well as Jack Pack Basketball while growing up in Westwood.
Following his high school graduation Tyler went to work in the construction trades working for Nathan Rice Construction.
In 2006 Tyler felt the need to serve his country and enlisted into the U.S. Army taking basic training at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO before being stationed in Alaska. In 2011 he re-enlisted and as a member of the 3/8th Armor Division served his country in Iraq. He returned stateside to be stationed in Ft. Hood, Texas. While serving in Alaska Tyler had a life changing encounter with a pretty young lady named Susan Short which led to the couples marriage on September 3, 2008 in Anchorage, AK.
A devout Christian, Tyler was baptized in the Holy Land while serving in Iraq. A devoted family man he had a deep love for both them and his country. He was an avid gun collector.
In passing Tyler leaves his loving wife; Susan and his children; Isaiah, Christine, Serena, Jadah and Alyssa all of Ft. Hood, Texas, parents; Kennith and Sheila Abbott of Westwood, Shelly and Brian Smith of Reno, NV, brothers; Jonathan of Westwood, Joshua of Ft. Polk, LA, William residing in England, Michael of Arizona, sisters; Candi of New Mexico and Kandra of Chester along with numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. He will be especially be remembered by all he came in contact with for his sarcastic sense of humor.
