Absolutely devastating news.. According to @theTylerTrent brothers Instagram page, Tyler has passed away. I was able to talk with Tyler a few times while at WLFI and he was an amazing person in every single aspect of life. Thank you for all you did for cancer research. Prayers

I promised Tyler Trent we'd save him a chair on our set. We'll honor that promise at the close of the show tonight.
