FALLING WATERS, W.Va. - Mr. Michael Joseph Tyeryar, 50, of Falling Waters, W.Va., passed away suddenly on Thursday, Dec. 3, 2009, in Martinsburg, W.Va., from injuries sustained from a tragic motorcycle accident.

Mike was a 1977 graduate of Thomas Johnson High School. He loved spending time with his family and friends, and in his short life, reached out and touched many people's hearts. Mike enjoyed working, boating, learning new water sports and playing with his dogs, Chelsea and Sparky.
