The father of another 2nd generation Airways descendant, Blaire Branch, Tyler Morrow has spent almost half of his life a loyal member of the Airways Freight organization. Starting his journey in February of 1998, Tyler was recommended by his Uncle, Neil Smith (another longtime employee of Airways). Soon after attending one of Airways Freight’s annual Mudbug bashes, Tyler was positive that’s where he wanted to be. The family atmosphere as well as the work ethic his co-workers illustrate, have always been incomparable to any other place he has worked.
Starting out in Airways Trade show division, Tyler traveled working as a show representative. He then did a brief stint in Airways International department then finally settled into Domestic freight and has been there ever since.
Born and raised in Arkansas, Tyler has fond memories of growing up in the small college town of Fayetteville. He enjoys the Arkansas Razorbacks and loves going to the sporting events whenever possible.
In 1992, Tyler married the love of his life Misty and have been together for 26 years. Together they have two children, Dallas 24 and Blaire who is 22 and has just begun her own journey at Airways. Tyler considers Misty the most influential person in his life. He is very proud of the extreme dedication she has for her job beginning as a Labor and Delivery Nurse for twelve years, and now doing pre-operative and post-operative care and the development of the Breast Cancer Navigation program at Willow Creek Women’s Hospital.
Some of Tyler’s favorite things to do outside of work are getting together with family and friends, golfing and traveling. He has seen Washington D.C. on the forth of July and has toured Alcatraz Island in San Francisco.
In March of 1998, after staying the weekend at Tannenbaum Golf Course, Tyler woke up with his arm numb from the elbow down. When after a couple of weeks the numbness was still there, he made an appointment with his doctor. Tyler was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.
Although he has been diagnosed with MS, Tyler does not let it define him. He wakes up in the morning and is grateful for each day he has been given. His positivity and strength are awe inspiring, and Airways Freight celebrates his accomplishments.
