Tyler DeJuan Bivens was born on February 23, 1995 to Rodnell Leonard and Markita Walker at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Maryland. He transitioned from labor to reward on March 20, 2021 at his residence in Fruitland, Maryland.

Tyler was a graduate of Pocomoke High School in Pocomoke City, Maryland. Upon graduation, he attended Wor-Wic Community College in Salisbury, Maryland. Tyler was currently employed at Credit Plus, where he was reponsible for verifying employment for this agency. He also was a funeral attendant for Lewis N. Watson Funeral Home, P.A.

Tyler was a faithful member of Shiloh Baptist Church in Atlantic, Virginia. It was there that he acknowledged the calling of his life and began preaching at the tender age of nine. In 2009, at the age of fourteen, Tyler became a licensed minister. He professed the good news of Jesus Christ in every ministry he served. Tyler was a dedicated Minister, Praise and Worship Leader, Choir Director, and Youth Leader. He was a true servant leader!

Tyler had a passion to serve and did so with great enthusiasm. As a student in high school, he was the President of the Christian Club at Pocomoke High School. Tyler loved to spread the Gospel on any platform, special engagement, and revival services from Virginia to New Jersey. He also served as the President of the Youth Ministry of the Eastern Shore Virginia/Maryland (ESVA/MD) Baptist Association, Vice-President and President of the Eastern Shore Conference of Baptist Clergy, and a member of the Minor Prophetic Institute. He spread the Gospel wherever he went and loved all of God’s people.

On April 28, 2019, Tyler married the love of his life, Terrica Holden Bivens.This union was blessed with Tyler, II on July 27, 2020. Tyler loved to travel but Mortuary Science and the associated business was a definite interest.

To know Tyler, was to love him. It is obvious that though his life was short, it was very impactful. He truly loved his family, church family, community, and friends. Most of all, he loved God!

Tyler was welcomed by those awaiting him on last Saturday morning, Joan Leonard, Marguarite Bivens, Clarence Bivens, Annie Mae Bloxom, and Maggie Lee Byrd.

He leaves to cherish his fond memories: loving wife, Terrica Bivens; son, Tyler DeJuan Bivens, II; parents, Markita (Bryant) Walker, Rodnell (Angela) Leonard, and Tyrone (Kita) Douglas; grandparents, Deacon Tyrone (Virginia) Strand, Florence Douglas, Charlie (Judith) Downing, Michael (Gina) Byrd, Robert Leonard, and Clifton Beach; brothers, Tyrel Douglas, Ra’Saan Revels, and Rodnell Leonard, Jr.; sister, Joanell Leonard and Abigail Taylor; aunts, Charley Robinson and Keyonte Custis; uncles, Maurice Bivens and Tyrone Pickett; niece, Shamiyah Holden; nephew, Micah Holden; great aunts, Rosa Justice, Apostle Ruby Gilliam, Bonita Byrd, and Veronica Byrd; loving in-laws, Terry (Hannah) Holden, Sr.; and brother-in-law, Terry (Kandiss) Holden. Tyler was everyone’s child, so he leaves a host of second moms, aunties, cousins, and special friends.
