Washington Co. Teen Remembered At Vigil
WASHINGTON, Pa. (KDKA) — Several hundred coworkers, friends and family members of a Washington County teenager gathered Friday night to remember him.
Tyler Roy, 19, was a 2011 graduate of Washington High School. He was killed early Wednesday morning when his pickup truck went off a road in Independence Township, hit a guardrail and went into an embankment.
“He was very loved by many,” James Corbett, Roy’s stepfather, said. “You couldn’t never be around him and be mad – he wouldn’t let you.”
Two of his sisters described Roy as someone special. They say he was a dedicated, unique person and they couldn’t have been prouder of him.
Roy went to work in the ROC Gas Wells after graduation. One of Roy’s co-workers, Zachary Stone, said he was not afraid to work overtime and he had a strong work ethic.
“He was a hell of a worker,” Stone said. “He was always there – wasn’t afraid of it.”
Funeral services will be held next week.
