ST. MARYS - Family of the late Tyler Mancuso gathered at Memorial Park in St. Marys earlier this month participate in the dedication of a memorial tree in his honor.
The emotional ceremony, hosted by the City of St. Marys Shade Tree Commission, took place on a crisp Saturday morning in the upper portion of the park near the grass lined area around the parking lot adjacent to Wolfel Avenue where a royal raindrops flowering crab was planted by David Grotzinger of West Creek Nursery.
A plaque commemorating the event is situated in front of the tree. It reads, “In loving memory of Tyler Mancuso, forever 25. There are some who bring a joy so great to this world that even after they are gone the smile remains.”
