Tyler Mason McRight, 24 years of age, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, November 28, 2023.
Tyler was born on February 8, 1999, in Greenville, MS to Bill and Meredith McRight. He was the youngest of three children. His childhood with his brothers was filled with many hours of hunting along Deer Creek in Valley Park. These years are some of our most precious memories as a family.
He attended First Baptist Church in Vicksburg, MS. Tyler never met a stranger. Everyone who knew him loved him and considered him a true friend. His smile was genuine and could always light up a room. To know him was to love him and he lived life to the fullest every day.
He attended Redwood Elementary and Warren Central High School where he was the starting catcher for the Viking Baseball team and a Norseman recipient. Being an avid hunter, Tyler spent countless hours preparing duck holes in preparation for hunts with his many friends. This was truly the love of Tyler’s life.
After graduating from Warren Central High School, he received his consulting license and worked as a crop consultant with Southern Ag Consulting. Working alongside his dad in the agriculture business was a joy for both of them.
Our beloved Tyler was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather Joe Edward Morgan from Greenville, MS. He is survived by his maternal grandmother Martha Sue Morgan of Greenville, MS, his paternal grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Bill McRight, Jr. (Carole) of Eagle Lake, MS, his parents Mr. and Mrs. Bill McRight (Meredith) of Vicksburg, MS, brothers Bill McRight (Callie) of Oxford, MS, John Morgan McRight (fiancee’ Tori Thomas), niece Walker Leigh McRight, nephew William Lake McRight and his girlfriend Mary Michael Mahalitc of Glen Alan, MS.
