We deeply miss you Tyler. You are in our thoughts all the time. We know you were a great person, friend, brother, grandson, and son. We often dream about what could have been a wonderful life for you. We have not given up on our struggle to get justice for you and others killed in such a violent manner. We get strength from the knowledge of your love for us. We will be together in another life.  Love. Dad.

You were needlessly killed by Chico Police six years ago. We are still seeking justice for you. You are constantly in our thoughts. The X Games are in Ventura today. We know you would have looked forward to seeing them. We will be together again. Love. Dad, Mom, and Hillary.

My precious 1st born Grandson. Today, on your "Birthdate" reminds me of how excited I was on this "date" 40 years ago. You were such a loving, considerate, caring child and adult. I loved your Bear Hugs you always gave me, and I look forward to the day you can greet me with your hugs on my journey to Heaven. I love you so much  Gramma Laura

We miss Tyler and he is constantly on our minds. He was killed for what? Killed by “peace officers “ and a wannabe cop. A violent death to a peaceful soul. We are still seeking some little bit of justice for you but the system is protecting the killers. We won’t give up without a fight to the end. We think that Tyler would want us to try to stop rogue cops from doing to others what was done to him. The world is a sadder place. He was a good man.

Tyler, I miss you so much. I can't believe it's been 5 years. Your parents are fighting so hard to find justice for you and many others who have been shot and killed by a police officer. I know you're proud of them. Love forever...

Tyler would have been 39 years young on October 22nd. When he was shot down, he was a happy young man, and he was a busy entrepreneur and budding photographer. We were lucky to have him for 34 years, and we have not gotten justice for him....yet.

To Tyler and his friends. Paula and I still are pursuing justice. Our lawyers have appealed the district court dismissal but then we appealed that decision so we are waiting for the Ninth Circuit Federal Appeals court to overturn the lower court decision and put the cops and guard on trial for the unnecessary use of deadly force. We believe Tyler would want us to fight the injustice of his violent and cruel killing so no one else will suffer as he did. We may lose but we are going down fighting for him. The country has learned cops kill civilians. Tyler should be alive today. We miss him every minute of every day.

Four years later and not a day goes by that I don’t think of how much I miss you. I think back to the days that you and Deacon (my puppy who has since passed) used to cuddle on the couch with each other. Now i just imagine him walking along side wherever you guys are… my most loved cherished friends are gone. I would give anything to see you both again. Together I love you bebe.

Today will always be a special day for me. My first grandchild Tyler Rushing gave me so many happy years until the year he was taken from us. I recall all the bear hugs, his love of Star Wars collections, collection of 33 1/3 records of all types music and a joy of art expressions. I will see you again someday.  Gramma Laura

Hi Everyone:
Please check the gallery of photos for the three new ones I posted yesterday. A group of chico friends held a vigil for Tyler and it was great. My friend, David Phillips organized the event. His son, Desmond, was shot dead by Chico police just fourteen weeks before Tyler.

We are remembering Tyler’s beautiful celebration of life, and the testimonies of his sweet, and gentle personality. His gentleness was a common thread expressed by everyone who spoke at the celebration. 
We treated Tyler like family, as he spent many hours in our home, while he meticulously shined our windows. He was always so courteous, and appreciative of burrito lunches that we shared. 
We had some frequent laughs as the seagulls seemed to be drawn to our shinny windows, and would leave their signature shortly after Tyler finished the job. 
We took great pleasure in recommending Tyler’s services, as we valued the incredible pride he took in every job; he always left our home shining.
Our hearts break with the loss of Tyler, and the pain his family has endured. 
We thank God for the family’s faith; a wonderful example for others to witness. 
Sending love and blessings to Paula, Scott, Hillary, and extended family.
With much LOVE,
Albert Harris and Rosa Lee Measures

I remember Tyler as such a sweet polite young man. My boys enjoyed visiting with their second cousin. They had a lot in common riding skate boards and just simply hanging out, visiting, laughing and
just enjoying each others company.
 Our trip to Tyler's Memorial was bitter sweet. The day of the Memorial, my husband Mike and I got up early and went to the beach at 6am. Hollywood beach in Oxnard. As I stood looking out at the Ocean, I could feel the breeze and Tyler's spirit with me. My eyes filled with sorrow,
for a young man gone too soon. I felt
concern for Tyler's family and friends who would miss him dearly as well as my brother and sisters. Rest in peace dear Tyler, gone but never forgotten...

Today, Tyler's Birthday will always bring special memories in my life. My first born grandchild brings happy moments and joy to me. Tyler was a loving and
caring boy and young adult with concern for others around him. I loved the bear hugs he gave and didn't want to stop the connection. You were sooo loved and I know I will see you again when we will have those bear hugs again. Gramma Laura

Tyler, along with the wonderful memories we have of your personality and spirit, your legacy includes the efforts of your parents to reform the actions of law enforcement officers throughout America. God willing, their good work will cause police everywhere to take the time to perform a better assessment of the situation before taking aggressive action. Lives and families will be saved thanks to the movement initiated by your death. That will be an everlasting honor to your memory.

I wanted to send continuing prayers and love to everyone who loved Tyler.
We think of him often and miss him even more. I dream of him occasionally and it is as if he never left. I posted a couple of pictures today of a monument we erected for him. It is a steel skateboard welded to a solid steel pipe and set in concrete. Every year we fix it up a bit more, new wheels, new bearings and shine it up.
It is placed in the desert where Tyler and the guys would frequent to ride motorcycles and have adventures. The monument stands in the shape of a "T" for Tyler and cast a shadow of a "T" in the morning sun and the evening sunset.
"Tyler we miss you buddy but we know you are watching us and protecting us as if you were here today."
Peace and Love!

Paula, Hillary, and I will be visiting Tyler's grave today. His ashes are at Ivy Lawn Cemetery in Ventura. Thank you to those who have supported us in this impossibly difficult time in our lives. The loss of Tyler, in such a violent manner by a "peace officer," is so inappropriate for a peaceful young man who was always friendly and kind to others.

Dear Tyler,
You will always be a part of my heart, My First Grandson!! I know I will be with you again some day. What a great day that will be. When I see one butterfly in my back yard I feel it is a message that you are at peace.
I love you so much,

Tyler, I met you in high school and you made me feel at ease. I didn't have to be anything but myself around you.
At your apartment, we talked for hours about hip hop. I was scratching the surface of the scene and you ALWAYS had some new music to play for me, and it was always good.
You let me stay at your apartment during my turbulent times. You let me play your records on your expensive DJ equipment. There was this one album that you had. I can hear it now because I played it over, and over, and over, until the sun came up. For years I looked everywhere for that album and have never found it - probably never will. I had always wanted to learn to DJ, but never got around to it.
After you passed, I was thinking about you, and a voice inside me said, "Life's too short. Go do what you enjoy." After that I bought myself some turntables and started my collection! Now I play records for Pat and we reminisce over you.
After you died, I learned you were interested in telling the stories of homeless people. Bro! I wrote my Master's thesis on house-less folks and police violence! I can only imagine the conversations we could have had. Thank you for taking interest in showing dignity to the least among us. You never disrespected anyone.
This year I put my Dia de los Muertos altar up for you. There's marigold, obsidian, pics of my grandparents, and you. I did my best to tell your story. God bless your life, Chone. I can feel you with me sometimes.
-Victor

Hi Everyone:
The new photos in the gallery are from the prayer vigil held last night in Chico, CA at the location where Ty was shot dead by Chico Police. It was a tearful event but really some super people braved the virus and heat to be there to remember Ty. 


Tyler in Macchu Picchu

September 3, 2017

Tyler and I got a good look at the ancient city in the Andes, Macchu Picchu. We also toured Cusco and Lima. We went on several hikes on the Inca Trail at elevations of 10,000 to 12,000 feet. The views up these mountains were awesome and the mysterious city was more spectacular than picutres can convey. Tyler got to see how people in the third world struggle for daily bread. This was a great buddy trip for us and one of my memories of Tyler that will be with me until I see him again.
