Tyrone, also affectionately called, “Meson,” was born March 10, 1982. He was always independent, self-motivated, loyal, dependable, smart, enterprising, family-oriented, a music lover, a great athlete and relentless. From birth he persevered as the doctor fought to clear his airway. Dr. Pritchard’s face was red and intense as he was feverishly working, not saying a word…finally, Meson cried out. He always had game…when he was hospitalized for pneumonia as a toddler, he had the nurses believing he couldn’t walk until he apparently forgot when he ran to his mom.
Meson was always deep-thinking and serious but he was also funny even though he didn’t intend to be. One day he was telling a story while eating a Twix candy bar. He was so serious about what he was saying that he didn’t notice the chocolate melting on his fingers….so that he could get to the point of the story, he took a short cut; he referred to the short cut as, “this and that, woo, woo, woo.” We laughed so hard!
Meson was an awesome football player from an early age. He loved his coach Tom. He still holds records at Speedway High School in Indianapolis. Meson had an opportunity for an NFL tryout from high school but instead opted to pursue music. Meson was academically astute whenever he wanted to be.
Family life was not without conflict, drama, arguments and fights but we always knew we loved one another. Meson always asked for a baby brother and he taught his younger sibling many valuable things. Meson cherished his father who provided guidance, values, support, and the agape love of a Godly dad.
Meson’s spirit will continue to be cherished by his mother, Robin Beasley, father, Tyrone Causey, Sr. and stepmother, Lori Causey, his brother, DeVon Causey, and niece Alaynah Causey, his grandmother, Lucille Beasley, and stepfather, Arthur Rice, he was preceded in death by his grandmother, Emma Causey, grandfather, Johnny Causey, and grandfather, Jessie Beasley. His spirit will be cherished by a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Finally, Tyrone Causey, Jr. departed this world on January 12, 2021, at the age of 38, having accepted Christ as his Savior, confessing with his mouth that Jesus is Lord, was baptized, and believed in his heart that he was born again. He would say from time to time that, “He just wanted to see God’s face.” The word of God tells us that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8 We miss you…Until we meet up again in our heavenly bodies, Love Mom, Dad, and DeVon
