On Sunday, May 16, 2021 at 11:00 a.m., Tylon (MB Live, Rhino, Lon) Savon Hardy, son of Melinda Darchelle Hardy, passed away at the age of 25. Tylon was born on June 25, 1995 at Middlesex Memorial Hospital. He graduated from Middletown High school in 2014. Tylon entered the workforce after graduating HS. He worked at McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Shoprite, Burger King and Chipotle, etc. in various locations around town and in Vermont. In his spare time, he would rap and write rhymes with his friends and blood brothers. He loved to play basketball and flag football with his friends every Sunday. He loved to look good, smell good and laugh. loud. His light was so bright it would blind the room. Tylon was predeceased by his mother and the void left him empty. He battled with brokenness which sometimes led to behaviors that were not consistent with his true character and for which he was remorseful. The whole of Tylon's life should not be defined by violence and mistakes. He relocated to Vermont to escape the pull of the gang life. Tylon would always return to CT to see his blood brothers and immediate family. The call for help would always ring and he would put on his superhero cape and literally save the day for his squad. Gang violence is a national health crisis in the black and brown communities. MB Live was a skilled rap artist with talent, pose and finesse. He was a loving son at times. Despite sibling spats Tylon had a tremendous love for his sister Tianna and brother Savonte. He remembered to call and aggravate his, grandmother, aunts, uncles and cousins. Those who knew him well describe Tylon as a kind and brave soul, a protector who maintained an open heart and, when he had one to share, an open bottle. Tylon was a friend to many and wanted so much to be free of the street life so that he could live the life of which he dreamed-to have a successful career in the music industry and a home of his own, to be the best father, brother, nephew, uncle, friend and partner. Tylon fought a good fight. But we lost the battle as a community. He leaves behind his godson Ka’lil Sincere Walton and adopted daughter Ka’Lanni Lovett Hardy, his sister, Tianna Tamara Hardy and his brother Savonte Marquis Hardy, great grandmother Gladys Pierce Nixon, grandparents, Betty Jean Hardy, James Charles Snipes, aunts, great aunts and uncles, great uncles, uncles, Hakeem Abdul Basir, Wondtresia Hardy Basir, Rahim Addur-Rahman, Paul Pierce, Brenda Pierce, Steve Chapman, Lorraine Chapman, Rosie Howard, Clara Mae Pierce, Ivan Watford, Rosalind Watford, Kevin Morant, Rondell Randolph, four close cousins, Quateria Andriatta Smith, Marc Edward Williams Jr, Shytasia Charmaine Williams, Gia Arianna Morant and devoted partner Tianna Lovett and all love ones, distant relatives and acquaintances.
