James Tyler Medley


Tyler Medley, age 24, of Hot Springs, passed away on Monday, April 17, 2023.

He was born on October 23, 1998, in Hot Springs.

Tyler worked at Medley Drywall as a head texture sprayer.  He had a heart of gold and it showed with how he helped everyone.  He loved working on cars with his “Paw”, spending time on the lake, and loved his family and God with his whole heart.  We will all miss his smile, laughter, and the joy he brought to us.

He is survived by his mother and stepfather, Heather and Ty Lindsey; his father and stepmother, John and Casey Gardner; his half-brothers and half-sisters, Kaylin Orrell, Arbrianna Jordan, Tyanna Lindsey, Kassidy Gardner, Korianna Robinson, and K’Mari Lindsey; maternal grandparents, James and Marsha Medley; paternal grandparents, Mike and Debbie Gardner; aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family members and a host of wonderful friends.
