Tyler, as he was called by his family and close friends, was born on February 29, 1996, in Oxon Hill, Maryland, to Jeffery Howard Coleman, Sr. and Yvette Michelle Edwards, who preceded him in death.


Tyler attended Johnston County schools and graduated from Corinth Holders High School with the Class of 2015.  He was employed at Millennia in Rocky Mount, NC.


Tyler had a passion for video gaming.  He would spend hours with friends, laughing and talking, but at the same time, being very competitive with his racing games.  He also loved cooking, often experimenting with different flavors and methods until he got his finished dish “just right”. 


He was a “gentle giant” with a warm smile and every time he saw anyone, he would give them a big hug.  Every day, that smile was always there, even during life’s hardships.  Everyone loved and cared for him very much.


Tyler leaves to cherish his precious memories; father, Jeffery Howard Coleman, Sr. and stepmother, Wendy Coleman of Clayton, NC; brothers, Christopher Coleman of Seattle, WA and Joel King of Greensboro, NC; grandmothers, Delores Henderson of Clayton, NC and Carol Edwards of Greensboro, NC; uncles, Larry and Gregory Coleman of Maryland; and a host of relatives and friends who love him and will miss him dearly.
