Ty was a teammate of mine at SBU. I was two years older than he was, but we were both catchers so we spent a lot of time together. It didn't take long to find Ty was a genuine kid. He had a laugh that, years later, I remember vividly. He never had a negative thing to say about anybody and he was very well-liked. I am thankful to have spent the time I did with Ty, both on and off the baseball field. He was a joy to be around and I am heartbroken to not have another opportunity to see him. While I was blessed to have know him, I am most grateful for the friend he was to my younger brother, who he lived with at SBU. We are all better for having known Ty Hampton.

I have shared many Hampton Family accolades in the past few days, and a good many Willard South teachers have reached out to share their fond memories of Ty, and the family. You guys are rock stars - if schools were filled with kids like Ty and Bobby, and parents like you, everyone would be as blessed as we were by sharing time with you folks! My heart breaks but whoever gets the donations of life from Tyler, will be better people for having his gifts!

I’ll never forget the baseball game that Tyler lined a ball to the wall. He rounded second and coach sent him on to third. As he was heading to third coach was yelling to get down and slide. As Ty was headed to third he was yelling “ I don’t slide. I’m a catcher, someone always runs for me. “ He will be deeply missed. What a great young man.

Ty was a wonderful young man. He was always willing to make someone's day better. At our last family Christmas party he kept coming over and giving me hugs and saying "I like hugging you because you make me feel tall" then he'd smile and chuckle and walk away, only to come back a few minutes later and do it again. He is definitely one of a kind and will absolutely be missed. Fly high on wings of gold Tyler. I love you cuz. ❤

Indy 500 when he was 12 and Micheal was 13. Those two were peas in a pod. Kept everyone laughing. He had such a good heart and spirit. He will be missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

May God bring your family comfort at this time and with the days head. I will remember all the wonderful baseball trips with Ty when his dad couched all the boys. May Ty be celebrated with joy in heaven and on earth.
