Tyre Christopher Brant was born December 18, 1983 in Philadelphia, PA to the union of Roosevelt Brant Jr and Emma Jean Montgomery. Tyre was born with kidneys that didn’t work so well. At age 14, in the December of 1998, he was given a kidney donated by his father and that kidney lasted him 18 wonderful years until October 2016.
Tyre, ‘Pooh Bear”, affectionately referred to by his mother, was educated in the School District of Philadelphia. In June 2002, Tyre graduated from Lamberton High School, but not before being selected Prom King at his High School Prom that year. In 2010, Tyre enrolled in P.I.T, Pennsylvania Institute of Technology, where he graduated in 2012 at the top of his class with a certification as a Nursing Assistant. His ultimate aspirations were to become a Radiology Technician.
Tyre was an extremely independent person who enjoyed making his own money, beginning at age 8 with a newspaper route and bagging groceries at a local ShopRite supermarket. Later he pursued a career in Loss Prevention spending 8 years at U.S. Security Company and 9 years at Allied Barton Universal Security Company, until 2016 when he became too sick to adequately hold his position.
Tyre had aspirations for entrepreneurship in Record Labeling. He consulted the Lord for a name and he was given “Eturnal Records”. Finding it difficult to move it alone, He came up with the name of his clothing line “Eturnal Stylez”. Tyre was always an ambitious young man who would stop at nothing to pursue his dreams and aspirations until he became too sick to reach his goals. The last 3 ¼ years have been the most challenging of his entire lifetime. But he slowed up, but never gave up on his dreams. Additionally, the last 4 months brought about challenges he truly struggled to overcome and he became weaker and weaker.
Tyre loved God, family, and life, but the love he had for his mother was insurmountable. He promised his mom when he made it big, he would bless her and his dad. He’d often encourage friends on social media speaking to them about God and telling them how important family is in these last days. He once told his mother that He wanted to be a Deacon in His brothers Church. Tyre was a respectable young man who showed the world through social media and otherwise how people, especially women, should be treated. For Tyre, this was paramount and he lived by example by the way he treated his “mommie”
