Tyler Gagliuso

August 28, 1990 ~ April 17, 2011

Tyler “Gal” Gagliuso died in the early morning on April 17th in Bozeman, Montana, due to injuries sustained a few days earlier. He was surrounded by many friends and family members for the days and nights of his brief battle to live on.


Tyler was born in Eugene, Oregon on August 28th, 1990.  He moved with his family to Hinesburg, Vermont, at the age of 10 months. Tyler attended Hinesburg Community School, and graduated from Champlain Valley Union High School in 2008. Tyler was an accomplished athlete, and was on the CVU soccer team for four years. He also played on the ODP, Far Post, Nordic, and Iroquois soccer teams. He traveled to Spain and Holland for additional soccer training, trips which were among his most memorable. Tyler was also an avid skier since an early age, which played a part in his decision to attend Montana State University in Bozeman after graduating from CVU. Tyler had worked as a ski instructor at Smugglers’ Notch, Vermont, and as a councilor for CVU Soccer Camp.  He was also employed at the Cucina Antica in Shelburne, Vermont, the Town and Country Inn in Gorham, New Hampshire, and the Casa Sanchez and the Nova Café in Bozeman, Montana.


Tyler will be remembered most for his sweet and sensitive nature, which expressed itself to his friends and family. He had a strong unconditional love and pride for his sister, and never missed an opportunity to demonstrate it. His smile was infectious, and he will be sadly missed by family and friends. A celebration of Tyler’s life was held in Bozeman, Montana.


He is survived by his parents, Robert Gagliuso and Jenifer Lary; his beloved sister, Lia Gagliuso; grandmothers, Phyllis Lary and Violet Gagliuso; step-grandfather, Carl Tatlock; aunts, Stephanie and Allison Lary, Donna and Barbara Gagliuso, Tricia Peters; uncles, Douglas Lary, Andrew Brown, Andrew Kaplan and Tom Peters; and cousins, Lauren, Taylor and Matt Goldsborough, Sophie, Phoebe and Ruben Kaplan, Nicholas, Nathan and Matthew Sylvain and Carter and Cameron Brown.

Family Feedback

"I just wanted to thank you for all your help with my dad's funeral.  Planning a funeral can be very stressful, but you took such care that we were never confused or stressed about anything.  It was so easy to call and talk with you and ask questions.  You presented all the options to us clearly to let us decide about things, and then you made them happen at the service so we didn't have to do anything.  You are so very good at your job."
