January 2, 1996 - October 5, 2020
On Monday, October 5, 2020, Tyler Austin Durham, loving brother and son, passed away at his residence. Tyler, age 24, was born on January 2, 1996 in Montgomery, Ohio to Donald and Tina (Bellamy) Durham. He was a 2014 graduate of Blanchester High School, then studied at Northern Kentucky University. He enjoyed his work as a groundskeeper at the Hyde Park Country Club.
Tyler's passion was baseball. He loved playing, coaching, and umpiring at John Heisler Park, where he spent every summer since he was 4 years old. He truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures: studying his bible, health and fitness, and spending time with both family and friends. He especially loved going for walks with his dog, Macy. He gave great advice, was a good friend, and had the best sense of humor.
Tyler was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Rachel Bellamy, and his best friend Brady Cain. He is survived by his parents, Donald and Tina, his brother Kyle, his grandparents William Henry Bellamy and Charlie and Sharon Baylor, several aunts and uncles, along with his beloved cousins.
