Dear W&L ’91 (from Greg Golden):
I am sad to report that I just learned that our friend and classmate Ty Suiters passed away last night. I do not yet have any details regarding a funeral or memorial service, but assume that it would be in the Arlington area. He was a great guy and will be missed.
Best regards, GJG

Today I lost my college roommate – Tyler Suiters – words don’t describe how much it hurts. He was one of the good guys – you could not ask for a better friend. I had not seen him for far too many years and I will regret that to my end. Suits was like the brother I never had. Rest easy old friend, you are gone but never forgotten.

For those who knew him, former KOCO-TV news anchor Tyler Suiters passed this week after living nearlyv2-years with ALS. Great guy, he leaves behind a wife and daughter. Too young to be taken by such a horrible disease.
