ROCHESTER-Tyler S. “Ty” Davis, 19, of Rochester, and a student at St. Bonaventure University in Allegany, passed away unexpectedly Sunday (Nov. 24, 2013) in Allegany.
Born in Rochester on July 14, 1994, he was the son of Stephen and Lynn Watt Davis.
Ty attended St. John Evangelist School, the Sienna Catholic Academy and graduated from Bishop Kearney High School in Rochester and presently he was a sophomore at St. Bonaventure University, majoring in history education.
An avid sportsman, Ty was a member of the varsity baseball team at Bishop Kearney High School and for 12 years he played for the Eastside Little League in Rochester. He was a devoted fan of the N.Y.

He especially liked to fish and hunt and enjoyed spending time with his family hunting at hunting camps in Whitesville and West Union. Ty also collected comic books and loved to read and write and once aspired to become a writer.
He will be remembered most of all for being a very polite, kind and understanding young man who was also very compassionate and showed his compassion to others in many different ways.
