He was born on July 15, 1980 in Fort Worth, TX, the oldest son of Mark Allen and Elizabeth Ann “Annie” (Williamson) Albright.

Tyson’s passion, the last 5 years of his life, was prison ministry.  He spent the majority of his time in the betterment of himself and others, both spiritually and emotionally.  He chose to involve himself in many various activities and made a strong effort to help other inmates better themselves.  He went through the Vietnam Veteran’s of America Substance Abuse Program to better himself, then facilitated the class as a leader, teaching others the principles needed to remain free from drugs.

He was a member of two therapeutic communities, The Genesis Project and the New Horizons Project.  As a member of both projects he led, developed and facilitated classes on leadership and genuine life change.

Tyson took Art as Therapy classes and created many beautiful works of art with airbrush painting and eventually helped teach others.

Tyson was a member of Toastmasters, a worldwide non-profit organization designed to help individuals become better communicators through leadership training and public speaking practice.  He was also taking online classed with Ashland University, working toward a degree in Christian Doctrine.  Tyson worked at a Metal Fabrication shop, first as a welder and then as an order clerk.
