On Friday, October 10, 1975 a gift by the name of Tyre DaShaun Stanford “Tye” was born. He was placed in the loving arms of his mother Sheila Stanford and William Paskins. Four years later he was accompanied by his younger brother John Durran Stanford, and an inseparable bond was formed. You could not say “Tye” without saying “Johnny” and you could not say “Johnny” without saying “Tye”. Shortly after that, a tragedy occurred which cost them to lose both of their parents. Their grandparents Shellie and Helen Walker then adopted the two, which lead to them gaining the “Walker” last name. Tye really looked up to his five uncles and two aunts. He really knew how to learn something from each one and put it all together. Tyre grew up on Brazke Court located in a neighborhood by the name of Shannon Square in Clinton, Maryland. That is where he met his lifelong friends, with over 30+ years of friendship. The love Tye had for his friends was very special and meaningful to him. He loved to laugh and have fun with all of his friends, they really made him happy. You just might even get a phone call from him at 1 AM. Tyre graduated from Surrattsville High School in 1993, and went on to graduate from the Computer Learning Center. Tye then met girlfriend Tamra Danita Dugger in 1996, who later became his wife on March 27, 2008. The history and love between those two was so amazing. A one of a kind type of relationship. On September 7, 2012 they had a child of their own, Tyra Sheila-Marie Walker. Her middle name Sheila is a in memory of Tyre’s late biological mother. Tye loved his daughter so much, that he gave her a personal nickname of “Weezy” that ONLY he could call her. They would always take pictures together, making plenty of memorable moments. Tye was a stand up man. His favorite hobbies were listening to music and fixing up his vehicles. He was a great father, a great relative to all, a great friend, a hard worker, a go getter, a faithful New York Giants fan, and that’s just to name a few. He was very intelligent and excelled in quite a few jobs. He was a 3rd shift supervisor for a private owned post office for 6 years until they went out of business. He picked up another skill using forklifts and etc., and has been a warehouse worker ever since, with each job just getting better and better. Tye was definitely the party starter and he was loved for that. Tye loved his entire family and would do ANYTHING for them. Tye really enjoyed the time he spent with his cousins. From day one and on up whenever he reconnected with them, there was nothing but fun and good times. Anyone who spent time with Tye, knows that he is one of a kind and will truly be missed… In 2010, Tye and Johhny united with their sisters, Doneta Abney, Venus Paskins, and their youngest brother Antoine Harris. They all grew a very close bond, while visiting each other and keeping in contract ever since. Tyre is survived by his wife Tamra Danita Walker and their daughter Sheila-Marie Walker, his brother John “Johnnie” Durran Walker, his grandfather/adopted father Shellie Walker, his uncles/ adopted brothers Ira (Lillian) Stanford, Bruce (Audrey) Stanford, Donny (Nereida) Walker, Kenny Walker (Von) and Eric Walker, his aunts/adopted sisters Tradena “Dena” (Reggie) Rowlett and Cecelia (Fred) Hall, two half-sisters Doneta Abney and Venus Paskins, a half-brother Antoine Harris, two nieces and seven nephews that all looked up to him and loved him unconditionally, and a host of cousins and friends.
