He is the beloved husband of Sarah Beth Rudgers Tysz, to whom he was married for nearly 20 years and father to son Caleb and daughter Carlin.
A devoted father and husband, he was never happier than when he was working in the workshop & greenhouse with his daughter, participating in scout trips and projects with his son, or taking the family on cross-country adventures to camp in the National Parks. It was his planning and vision that helped his family see sites they will remember always.
He was a graduate of Salem State College in Salem, MA with a Bachelors in urban geography. He was a Sr. Scientist for Atkins Global working from Rexford, NY. He served as a Certified Floodplain Manager and on the boards of both the New York State Association of State Floodplain and Stormwater Managers and the Association of State Floodplain Managers. He craved knowledge, reading all the time and inspired his children to do the same. He was Assistant Scout Master for his son’s Boyscout Troop 3036 and amazing with his workmanship, craftmanship, woodworking and home remodeling. He was a true artisan.
He is survived by his wife Sarah, his son Caleb, his daughter Carlin, his mother Barbara (West Springfield, MA), his father Bob (New Port Richey, FL), and his brother Andy (Beverly, MA) along with countless aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws and friends. His family and friends meant the world to him.
He will be missed for the smiles he gave us all.
