Tyler James Land


Tyler James Land, Webb City, Mo., passed away Saturday, April 28, 2018, from a drug overdose.
He spent April 25th, his 21st birthday, on a ventilator with the great staff at Mercy 3rd floor ICU trying to save his life. Tyler was a healthy, beautiful, fun, caring, young man who loved life. We do not believe he ever imagined his poor choice would result in death, breaking the hearts of those who love him.
Tyler graduated from Webb City High School in 2016. During his school years, he was active in soccer and his church. He liked all activities involving water, especially fishing. He was a true animal lover. He was a born again Christian, which gives us peace knowing life's struggles are over.
Tyler is survived by his parents, Chuck and Lisa Land, Webb City; brother, Zac (Anna) Land, Rogers Ark.; sisters, Ashley Land and Darci Land, Webb City; grandmother, Fronsie (Bill) Compton, Joplin; aunts, Brenda (Doug) Overman, Welch, Okla., Teresa (Steve) Webber, Oologah, Okla., Denisa (Lance) Simpson, Webb City; and uncle, Joe (Tami) Hughes, Stockton Mo.; nephew, Grayson Land, and a host of cousins and friends.
Tyler wanted to donate his organs so others may live.
Services will be held Tuesday, May 1st at Carterville Christian Church at 6 p.m. The family will receive friends from 4 p.m. until time of service.
In honor of Tyler and at the request of his family, no flowers please, just do something kind for someone.

"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes,and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away."
James 1:12

Arrangements are under the care of Simpson Funeral Home.
