Death: Tyler Gordon Benson

Tyler Gordon Benson, a pure and perfect angel has finished the callings Heavenly Father has given him, and returned to his heavenly home to be clasped in the arms of Jesus, on October 19, l997, at his home in West Jordan, Utah.

Born July 25, l993, the son of Heidi Hinckley Benson. Tyler came to earth an angel, caught in between two worlds. His strong spirit resonated the heavenly here on earth. This became more apparent, after an accident when he lost the ability to express himself in earthly ways. He then communicated his love from soul to soul. He has touched many lives deeply teaching diverse lessons. Among the greatest are to live life with true meaning and to transcend boundaries and fears to love with greater depth.Tyler served all who came in contact with him and was helped along his difficult path by many in return. Doctors, nurses, therapists, interveners, family, friends, neighbors, and children who loved him, have earned the gratitude of us all.

Tyler is survived by his mother, Heidi Hinckley Benson; grandparents, Reed and May Benson; grandmother, Sylvia Sylvester; aunts and uncles, Debra Sylvester, Holly and Will Holden, Taft and Joanie Benson, Heather and Mark Stephenson, Lucilla and Ryan Rhees, Mark and Kristen Benson, Joshua and Britney Benson, Lynna and Jared Stewart, Sarah and Sid Peterson; also many cousins and friends.
