Tyson Crowder

Organ Donor


August 14, 2023

Tyson Patton Crowder, loving husband, stepfather and avid outdoorsman, was 54 when he died from a head injury August 11, 2023. Everyone who met him fell in love with his affectionate laugh, his smile, and his sincerity to truly have deep friendships. Soft spoken but the one voice you’d want to hear to make sure you’re right. He took the time to listen to people, so that when he said something, it meant something. He didn’t talk about himself, he was far more interested in other people. He was a man who lived and gave their everything to who and what they love. He hiked, biked and skied hundreds of trails and kayaked many waters. He loved wood turning and built homes in Knoxville, Tennessee and was most proud of one he hand built in the woods of the beloved Sandpoint, Idaho. He was an outdoorsman in a way that few people can claim. He spent years as a counsellor for troubled kids and took them on extended trips to the woods. He was an accomplished telemark skier and was a member of the National Ski Patrol. His relationships were built on love, laughter, and spirit filled with life of adventure. As his final act of selflessness Tyson gave the greatest gifts of all, life and hope, to four organ recipients around the country.
