Tyler Michael Reeb, 34

Tyler Michael Reeb, age 34, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, October 14, 2019 at his home in Richmond, VA. Tyler grew up in New Canaan, CT and was an avid sportsman involved with baseball, wrestling, lacrosse, and football. He approached life with a contagious sense of humor that came easy to him, sincere sensitivity towards others, a strong work ethic, and a powerful will. Tyler was always fond of the outdoors, happy to play alongside his sister in the woods and pastures of the family farm in Vermont and enjoy winter sports. He earned a BS in Psychology from Widener University in PA and worked with underprivileged youth in that area during college and after graduation. Tyler had been drawn to the military at a young age and ultimately enlisted in the United States Marine Corps on November 26th, 2007, attending recruit training at Paris Island, SC.
