Tyson John McAleese passed away unexpectedly on February 21, 2019, at the age of 27.
Tyson was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, on June 7, 1991, to Jennifer Lynn McAleese. Tyson lived in the Salt Lake Valley until he was 12 years old, when his family moved to Tooele.
Tyson was his own man from the beginning. Strong-willed but tender-hearted, he always stood up for his family and friends. He was a man of action, enjoying skateboarding, playing guitar, artwork, and writing poetry.
Tyson is survived by: his mother and stepfather, Jennifer and Matthew Johnson; his siblings, Jacob Pinkney, Alexander Pinkney, and Taryn (Taejohn) Koffel; his grandparents, Kathy Bateman, J. Mark Johnson, and Barbara Johnson. He has many more friends and family — too numerous to list — who will miss him dearly.
Tyson is preceded in death by his aunt Helen McAleese, his uncles Eddie McAleese, Joe McAleese, and Bart Johnson, and our dear friend Jennifer Beckett.
Services will be held Thursday, February 28, 2019, at the Cedarview LDS Church, 691 East Cedarview, Tooele, Utah. A viewing will begin at 10:00 AM, followed by funeral services at 11:00 AM. Graveside Service at the Sandy City Cemetery, 9000 South 700 East, Sandy, Utah at 2:00 PM.
