in Such a small amount of time Tyler left a big mark on us! He had a very dry sarcastic personality that we all loved! We will miss him dearly but never forget! Thank You Tyler for the time that we had. Rest In Peace ❤️

My heart goes out to the Roy family! I wish i could make the pain go away! Tyler once told me about a very special Christmas present he got one year, a blanket with a blown up picture of him and his family on it! I’m sure he would want you to know how special it was to him! Rest In Peace ❤️

Dear Roy family,
Tyler has been one of the greatest captains I've had the pleasure of playing hockey with to this day. The way he could light up the room with one quick sentence. I will never forget the goal he scored in overtime to send us to the silverstick final! I will be playing for you tonight T-Roy.
Deepest condolences

We are all saddened and shocked with the news of T-Roy's passing. He certainly was a great kid around the teams that he shared with Andrew, and a joy to have around at work. He always had a special way of putting a smile on everyone's face.
We will keep Tyler and you in our prayers. God bless you all.

Community-focused and locally-inspired
Mitchell Funeral Home is committed to Huntsville Families

Few Muskoka businesses are as entrenched in the community as Mitchell Funeral Home. Ould Funeral Home was first established in the early 1900s, with Larry Mitchell’s family taking over in the 1930s. Larry is proud of this tradition and the fact that theirs is the only funeral home in Muskoka, from Sundridge down to Orillia, that is still family-owned and operated. “I think that’s what makes us so unique,” Larry explains. “You’re dealing directly with our family when you come to us and that creates a special kind of familiarity at a pivotal time.”
Supporting families through loss creates an immediate and often lasting intimacy with a funeral director. Over the years, the Mitchell family –Larry together with his wife Colleen and son Bill-have connected with countless local families through the generations, which is the continuation of a tradition that goes back decades. “Some local families are connected with us as far back as great and great-great grandparents.”
