Tayvion was educated in the public schools of Accomack County and was a 2019 graduate of Arcadia High School. “Tay Man,” as he was affectionately known, was employed at Perdue Farms in Accomac, Virginia.
He was a loving son, brother, grandson, cousin, nephew, and friend. Those who knew him, even if just for a short time, enjoyed the shining light he brought to their lives. He touched the lives of so many, young and old. Tayvion was friendly and outgoing, and truly loved his family. He loved to play video games, hangout with family, crack jokes, and laugh. He could be found any day or night at his favorite spot, Royal Farms pump 5. His favorite football team was the Dallas Cowboys.
Tayvion will be missed everyday by his mother, brothers, sisters, and entire family. We know that Tayvion is being cared for by family members now, and is still loved here on Earth and will continue to be loved and cared for in Heaven. We love him and miss him so much.
