About The Charity
Our Mission & Tyler’s Story
Gone, but never forgotten
Tyler Stewart was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. He attended Boulder Creek High School, and graduated with honors. He then attended and graduated Concordia University in Irvine, California.
After graduating college, Tyler moved to Flagstaff, Arizona and told his Dad that he would only be here for a few weeks. A few weeks turned into a lifetime. Tyler loved Flagstaff. He loved living in the mountains. He had a passion for his two Labradors, and he loved basketball and played in a league with several of his police friends. Tyler met and befriended several police officers with the Flagstaff Police Department. Through these friendships, and his love for the community, Tyler applied and was hired as a police officer with the Flagstaff Police Department.
Tyler served with the police department for less than a year when he was killed in the line of duty on December 27, 2014. He was killed while investigating a domestic violence situation. Tyler loved the Flagstaff area, and serving the citizens of this community. In the short time that he served as a police officer, he had a major impact on the people he served and the officers he served with. Tyler often said he never had a bad day being a police officer. The people of this community supported his family and friends, and because this, the Tyler Stewart Memorial Charity was created to give back to those that supported the family and friends of Tyler Stewart when he was killed.
