Music Emblem

Tyler Francis Davis, 32, of Battle Creek entered into the afterlife of which he sang on May 21, 2021. He lived his life an adventurous free-thinker who walked off worry, embracing each day as a gift to be experienced. For Tyler, life was a journey to be enjoyed and he trusted the process that led him.

He graduated from Lakeview High School and earned his Bachelor's Degree in Marketing from Western Michigan University. An artist in many forms, he leaves us a treasure of lyrics, poems, writings, recorded songs and videos that express his passions in this life. In addition to his love for music, Tyler enjoyed drawing, writing, composing, poetry, disc golf, exploring and walking barefoot everywhere.
