Obituary for Tyler Andrew Barton
Tyler Andrew Barton, 34 of Emporia, found his peace on November 10, 2021. Tyler is survived by his adoring wife, Erica, his three beautiful children, Shelby Grace (mother, Sara Mayton), Liam Buck and Korrine Rose. He is also survived by his loving parents, David Barton (Havre de Grace, MD) and Linda Perkins Barton (Danieltown). Tyler had many wonderful friends that share the most amazing memories of his life, including Wil Daniel, Matt Barnes, Bobby Burrus and Terry Burrows. Tyler has an extensive family of grandparents, in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and a nephew, that he also leaves behind to cherish his memory. Tyler was a devoted father and enjoyed nothing more than spending time with his children and giving them the experiences that his parents shared with him growing up. Tyler loved hunting, fishing, and baseball and took pride in creating those memories with his children. Tyler never met a stranger and was always willing to lend a helping hand. This amazing personality led to his career advancement at Penske Truck Leasing, where he started as a diesel technician at the Chester location and ended up as a Branch Service Manager in Chesapeake. The memorial services to honor Tyler’s life will be held, Thursday November 18, 2021 at 2 PM at Echols Funeral Home in Emporia. In lieu of flowers, monetary donations can be made to benefit his children’s future.
