Obituary

Tyler Jeffrey Graham, 18 of Colchester died suddenly Friday Oct. 22, 2021, in a car accident. He was born January 20, 2003, and grew up in Colchester. His loss is felt by all that met and loved him. Tyler was beloved by all who knew him and made a lasting impact on his community on and off the athletic field. He excelled in soccer and basketball, but his true love was lacrosse. He was known for his sportsmanship, passion and was a natural leader being awarded a captain in his senior year at Bacon Academy. His footwork danced him across the field earning him the nickname Mambo. Tyler was a true team player who looked out for his younger teammates taking them under his wing and encouraging their growth in the sport he loved. Tyler was a graduate of Bacon Academy ’21 and had just entered his freshman year at Western Connecticut State University, majoring in Business Administration and was very proud to continue his lacrosse career in college. To family and friends, Tyler exuded a strong protective streak and was known as the peacekeeper, a skill he perfected growing up between his two sisters. His smile would light up any room he entered and was known for his amazing sense of humor and goofy nature bringing joy to all around him. Tyler is survived by his parents Jeffrey and Dina (Petrucci) Graham of Colchester, his sisters Abby and Katie Graham, grandparents Peter and Connie Graham, his aunt Dawn Petrucci and uncle Robert Graham as well as his maternal grandfather Richard Petrucci. He leaves behind his friends who became family and beloved pets Lily, Gizmo and Tommy. He was predeceased by his maternal grandmother Marie Petrucci, his great-grandfather Anthony Scialla and uncle Robert Deyber. Calling hours will be 4-8pm at St. Andrew Church in Colchester Friday October 29th and a funeral mass will be celebrated on Saturday October 30th at 11am. In lieu of flowers, Tyler’s loved ones would like you to consider a donation payable to the Tyler Graham Foundation, P.O. Box 732, Colchester, CT 06415, or visit https://tylergrahamfoundation.com/products/tyler-graham-foundation to benefit future generations of lacrosse players.
