  1. I am an audiologist at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs. I never met Ty in person. I spoke with him many times by phone. He was the person that we would contact for follow up with our patients, that reside in southern Colorado. We knew that he would provide the much needed services to our patients. It was evident that he was a kind person that cared about his patients. He will be greatly missed in the audiology community. My condolences to the family.

  2. Eileen and family,

    I am so saddened by your loss. I enjoyed getting to know Ty during our lunch breaks while working together in clinic in LaJunta all those years. The love and gratitude he had for his life and family were ever so present. He had a grace about him that no one will forget. If there is anything I can do for you, including at PCHC please do not hesitate to let me know. Deepest sympathy to you and your family- my prayers are with you- God Bless.

  6. I first want to say that I like many others was completely shocked by Ty’s untimely death. I didn’t spend a lot of time getting to know him but that was not necessary because there was a sense of familiarity that we shared. It will come as no surprise to those who shared a single moment with Ty, that he was a very kind spirit. It was truly my pleasure to have known Ty even for the brief time that it was. I would like to extend my deepest condolence to his wife and children as well as to all who loved and knew Ty. We never know what tomorrow may bring and that is why we say “One Day At a Time”

  7. Dear Eileen,

    I talked to Ty last week and like many of our conversations we ended up talking about family. We would share stories of the joys and concerns in raising teenagers. His love for you all was so very obvious. He was such a sincere man with a unique perspective and knack for telling a story that always had me smiling. I am so sad for your loss and will continue to keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers through this extremely difficult time.

  8. I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Ty for many years at Arkansas Valley Regional Medical Center. He was a wonderful person and audiologist and will be greatly missed. We are so sorry and saddened….

  10. To the Family of Ty Squires,

    I just want to express my deepest sympathy to you as I just read about the passing of Ty. I worked with Ty in Alamosa when he was the audiologist who came and helped us with our Hearing Clinics which was known back then as the Handicapped Children’s Program (HCP). It was such a pleasure to work with Ty. He was so caring and loved his work! He helped so many children with hearing loss and certainly was a pioneer in his field. Please know that he left a wonderful legacy. We are sad that he is gone. Please know that we will be praying for you.

    Sincerely,

    Theresa Rudder
    Alamosa, CO

  12. Eileen,

    There are no words to express how sorry I am about Ty’s death. You, Maggie, and Lee have been in my thoughts and prayers since I found out yesterday.

    I sincerely pray that God and the years of memories can comfort you and the kids during your time of grief.

    Brittney emailed Maggie yesterday to express her condolences and she is a great listener if Maggie ever needs a friend.

    I too am readily available.

    Sincerely,
    Emelie, Tony, and Brittney

  14. Dear Eileen,
    Many years have passed since our last meeting but we did want you to know that you, your children, and Jerry and Marlene have been and shall continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.
    It was my privilege several years ago for me (Frank) to be a patient of Ty for audio testing at La Junta. His professionalism and caring for me as an individual was
    something I truly appreciated.
    May God be with you at this sad time.

    Frank and Pat Bryant

    I cannot begin to express how saddened I was to hear of Ty’s passing. Please accept my condolences. You and your children are in my thoughts.

  18. As a fellow audiologist in Pueblo, I am deeply saddened by the loss of Ty. I know that he touched many lives in Southern Colorado with his knowledge and caring. He will be missed.

  19. What a deep loss for the hearing healthcare community. Ty was a loyal customer of the hearing aid manufacturing company that I worked for and he gave me a smile with every conversation. He was a phone call that I welcomed in even the busiest of times. His warmth and integrity will be missed by many. He was very special and a true role model in so many ways. God Bless you and your family as you continue your journey until you can be together again.

  21. Eileen,

    I am so saddened by the sudden passing of your husband. You’ve been on my mind these past few days. My heartfelt condolences go to you, your children, and your families.

  22. I, along with several members of our organization, have had the great privilege of working with Ty for several years in the hearing healthcare profession. In this time we have come to regard and appreciate Ty as a consumate, learned professional in his field of audiology. More importantly, he was considered by the Unitron Hearing staff here in Minnesota as a colleague, a friend and part of our family.
    His casual demeanor and disarming charm and warmth touched many people in our organization. Our hearts are heavy with the news of his passing and the knowledge that he was taken too soon from us.

  23. Dear Eileen,

    Words cannot describe my great sorrow for you and the kids. Ty was a great man and he will be dearly missed by all. I still remember vividly my trip to Canada with him and Lee. We had some prize $$$ up for the biggest fish caught that we week and he very humbly suggested that Lee would win the prize and he did with a 42 inch Northern. I’ll never forget the proud look on Ty’s face when that happened.

    He was a gentle man and genuine joy to be around and I will miss him greatly.

    My deepest condolences to you, Lee and Maggie.

    Sincerest Regards,

    Mike

  25. I would like to extend my deepest condolence to Ty’s wife and children as well as to all who loved, worked with and knew Ty Squires. I was overcome with heartfelt sadness in hearing the passing of Ty. Oh’�. such a beautiful person he was. Ty has been my audiologist since I was in the 2nd grade at Parkview Elementary in Lamar. Even at such a young age he was definitely my favorite. I always remembered the sense of true caring Ty held for those in his care. Ty was a very kind man, the kind that went out of his way to help those in need. I am honored to have been his patient for the past four decades. It was truly my pleasure to have known Ty. Such a great man cannot be replaced but can forever be remembered in our hearts. May my prayers be with all those who he left behind.
