We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Claytor Rollins Funeral Home and Crematory
Tyler Edward Giffin, born March 30, 1992, left this world and joined the cosmos on September 9, 2022. During his short life, Tyler was known by many names, with T, T-Man, Tylio, Twinkle Toes, and Disco Lemonade being among his favorites. Regardless of the name he went by, he was loved and treasured immensely by all who had the pleasure of making his acquaintance, and especially by his surviving family: Ruth Burdge, his mother; David Giffin, his father; Molly Giffin, his sister (who he lovingly called Molebucket); and Mamacita (Mamas), his cat who he referred to as “the fluffy scruffy kitty who knows how to move.” Tyler is also survived by Jim Burdge, his stepfather; Jimmy Burdge, his stepbrother; Jessica Kramer, his stepsister; Carey Kimbrough, his cousin; and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Although he was not born in Poquoson, Tyler moved there as a toddler in 1995 and lived most of his life on “Bull Island.” He attended Poquoson Primary School, Elementary School, Middle School, and High School from 1997 through 2010, leaving his unique mark and acquiring many meaningful and lasting friendships along the way. Tyler was a smart, curious, kind, creative, and gentle soul who loved and felt all things deeply. He was fiercely loyal to his family and friends. Tyler was the kind of person who helped those who were less fortunate than he, always willing to give his last dollar to someone in need. Never one to blame anybody for his misfortunes, Tyler always took responsibility for his actions. He loved animals, music, drawing, gardening, and spending time with his friends and family. Even though he was a minimalist, Tyler was an avid collector of hat pins, and he also enjoyed (almost to the point of obsession) studying and learning about the stock market. Though Tyler may have left this world far too soon, his light shines brightly in the hearts of all who know and love him.
A Celebration of Life Ceremony will be held on October 22, 2022 at 3:00pm, Claytor Rollins Funeral Home, 836 Poquoson Avenue, Poquoson, VA. Casual attire (preferably tie-dye) is suggested. In lieu of flowers, please consider helping a person, animal, or charity in need.
