William Tyler Barden, 39, passed away suddenly Tuesday morning, November 3, 2020 at his home in Celina, Texas. To his fortune, his mother and father were visiting him at his time of death. Private Graveside Services will be held on Monday, November 9, 2020 at 2:00 PM at Brownsville Memorial Gardens with Rev. Sammy Tillman officiating.
Tyler had a dynamic personality that could only be surpassed by his boisterous laugh and superb smile. He was indeed a friend to all! He made everyone feel like the most special and important person in the room and always left people feeling better than he found them. He never met a stranger, was the life of the party and loved with his whole heart.
He especially loved his family. He worshipped his adoring mother. He idolized his strong and guiding father. His close bond with his older brother and sister cannot be overstated. He adored his nieces and nephews as his own. His two precious sons were his world.
Tyler is survived by his two children, Autry Tyler, age 9, and Wright O’Neil, age 7, of Celina, Texas, his mother and father Gail Francis and William Autry Barden, of Brownsville, Tennessee, one older brother, Jason R. Anderson (Amber), of Jackson, Tennessee, one sister, Alicia Russell (Andrew) of Brownsville, Tennessee, three nieces and two nephews, Krista Douglass, Jude Anderson and Emily, Claire and William Russell, and the mother of his children, Leah McCarter of Celina, Texas.
Pallbearers for the service are Jude Anderson, Bate Bond, Paul Lawson, Hunter Burrus, Josh Knowlton, and Daniel Hernandez.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested memorials to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in honor of Claire Francis Russell, 50 North Dunlap Street, Memphis, Tennessee 38103. All arrangements and services are under the direction of the Lea & Simmons Funeral Home in Brownsville, Tennessee.
