Remembering Tyler Love


We lost our beloved son, Tyler Love, in a fatal accident Saturday night. He was doing one of his favorite things, riding his Ducate with his best friend, Keith Naylor.

They were 22 years old.

These beautiful young men were pure love and joy.

Tyler was an amazing brother, compassionate and devoted son, and a friend to everyone he met. He loved our dogs with all his heart.

He had the gift of living life to its fullest. He believed in living each day like it was his last. He loved his friends like they were born brothers. The bonds they have are everlasting.

Tyler had unconditional love for all of those he cared for.

Tyler and his sister Tristin breathed for each other as if they were one. When he was a baby, his sister Kelli wouldn’t let anyone touch him, because he was “her” baby.

I hope I can honor him every day of my life… and live every day as if it is my last. He was and is my hero.

Thank you for your prayers. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Malibu Pet Companions in my Tyler’s name.

His father Don, Tristin, Kelli, Ryan, Hoss, Dolce, Bacia, Ty’s grandparents, Sidney and Jackie Horwitz, his uncle Dr. Lon Howitz and his family, his uncle Dr. Todd Horwitz and his family. And I invite you to live your lives like Tyler did.

In addition to our immediate family, we thank our wonderful Malibu community for their outpouring of support and love. We think of you all as family.

We also thank you and appreciate you for your prayers.

This magnificent Man.

It was from the beginning when he came rushing to life at a powerful 11 lbs, ready to lead the world, or at least the nursery, at that time.

Caring, loving, strong, so full of life. A real man, able to emote, able to respect. Extraordinary at every level. His heart open to all. He touched so many people and made me so unbelievably proud.. This massive strong man that grew from our Tiggy. Oh how I love that boy.

We skied like maniacs, we biked as if possessed with the competition. Lived large. Lived respectfully. Lived responsibly. We hugged. We loved.

Every moment enriched by his presence. Inspiration at an epic level. Fortunately we spent so much time together there are many many memories. Memories do not bring back the loss after a mere 22 years, 6 months, 18 days, with us.

Could a Father ask for anything more? Impossible. Why oh why does he get taken from us in this random tragedy.

I miss him so much. The hole in my heart is so large.

Love your sons and daughters every second of every day.

Tyler’s Father,

-Don Love
