Asher LaPrise Tyus

Nov. 2, 2012 – Jan. 11, 2013

Our most precious son Asher, aka Sun Fire, left this realm a very loved baby by his parents, Chad Tyus and Angelique LaPrise Tyus; sister, Aubrey Rose; his grandparents, Michele and Mike Shepard, John Laprise, Papa Nick, EJ and Ms. Tyus; great-grandparents, Jim and Paula Shepard; aunts and uncles, Heather and Ian Beckham, Morgen and Lindsey Earle and Brittany Weber (and many more); cousins, Ethan Beckham, Harper Rain Beckham and Cora June Earle; godparents, Cindy Diltz, Kenneth Diltz and Loni Schanrock; and a beloved heart piece of a grieving circle of family and friends.

Asher was blessed into this world on Nov. 2, 2012, surrounded by many. At 4lbs 4oz, he was a fighter. He quickly gained weight, began smiling and blowing bubbles as he continued to fight a body that did not seem to want to cooperate. He quietly left in his sleep for reasons unknown, none would be adequate for those of us left behind. He touched so many lives in his short two and a half months.

An open service will be held Friday, Jan. 18, from 5 to 8 p.m., at Chapel of the Pines Mortuary, 2855 Cold Springs Road in Placerville, Calif. Online condolences may be posted at chapelofthepinesfunerals.com. In lieu of flowers any donations would be greatly appreciated and can be made in the name of Asher John at Schools Credit Union, Account No. 13007699, reference Lisa Mastropieri, who is managing the fund on the family’s behalf.
