PICKENS COUNTY, Al. (WCBI) – Tammy Spain is the first cousin of tornado victim Tyrone Spain.
Tyrone was one of the three people killed in Saturday’s storm in Pickens County, Alabama.
Family members said he owned Tyrone’s Taxi Service, which he operated during the University of Alabama’s football games.
Tyrone leaves behind two children, a 24-year-old daughter, and an 8-year-old son.
“Tyrone, he was pretty much the life of the party. Always joking, laughing, liked to have a good time and loved him some Alabama. Like I said, just a real family man, loved his kids… It’s very sad. Like I said, he was loved. Just fun. I mean, I just can’t really even put it into words,” said Tammy Spain.
Tyrone Spain was 51 years old.
