THOMPSON – Tyler Sean Bates, 31. An outstanding young man with a huge heart unexpectedly passed away on Tuesday, December 29, 2020, to be with departed family and friends. Tyler was a son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend, but most importantly he was a little girl’s hero and daddy. He is survived by his daughter, Lennix, who was the center of his life and sole purpose for being. Tyler took with him a piece of the hearts of all who knew and loved him.
A happy go lucky kind of guy, charming and charismatic, a friend to all. Always willing to help and most importantly to listen. Tyler was often seen wearing a great big smile. In his free time, he enjoyed the beach, music, hiking, fishing, disc golf, camping, kayaking, and a rip-roaring fire to sit around with friends and family. Tyler had a real love for Subarus, he enjoyed going to the Wicked Big Meet and being part of the Subaru family. He loved to tinker around, much like his father, he was a jack of all trades, master of none.
A private celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please donate towards Lennix’s expenses via: Tyler Bates Memorial Fund (https://gofundme.com/love-for-lennix) or Lennix Bates Fund, PO Box 313, North Grosvenordale, CT 06255
Arrangements are under the directions of Sitkowski, Malboeuf & Hickey Funeral Home, 340 School Street, Webster, MA.
