Obituary of Lo-T Tyler Morgan
Michael Tyler Morgan, fondly known as "Lo-T", passed from this earth on March 14, 2021, at the age of 34, peacefully surrounded by love in Allen, Texas. A memorial will be held at Merit Memorial Funeral Home in Farmers Branch, Texas followed by an honorary ride with the Brothers of Helltrain MC. Tyler was born on Groundhog Day, February 2, 1987, to Tiffney Townsend in Durant, Oklahoma. He was surrounded by love and family on the day he arrived and was loved and cherished his entire life. When Tyler was only seven months old, he was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Though he had a disease that limited his breathing and digestion, he never let it stop him from doing the things he loved. He was always up for trying something new and challenging. He loved playing baseball and football as a child. He loved ice skating, surging in Hawaii, roller skating, skateboarding, snowboarding, skydiving and many more sports. Tyler's greatest adventure was when he got his first Harley. He loved everything about it. Tyler was a Bad-Ass his entire life. He was stubborn as a mule, and never let anyone tell him he couldn't do something. When he made a decision he committed 100%. He was a hard worker. He had several jobs, including security guard, service associate at Honda Cars of McKinney, sales rep at Harley Davidson and Uber driver. On July 18, 2018, Tyler received the ultimate gift of new lungs. He was finally able to live his life for two and a half years without the burden of breathing treatments. Tyler was married once in his life to Malori Reynolds and had many loves, including Lauren Pierce, who walked through every step to help him heal after his transplant. Tyler had many friends in his life, including his life-long friend Gabe Hale, who whom he shared all his greatest adventures. His other friends that made a huge impact include Chance, Alex, James and Braulio. In January of 2020, Lo-T was patched into his brotherhood of Helltrain Motorcycle Club.
