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.
