Tyrone Adan Rivera

July 30, 1976 — May 7, 2022

Tyrone Adan Rivera passed away with his family by his side May, 7th 2022 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  He was 45 years old.  He was preceded by his biological father Pat Rael.  He is survived by his mother, Matilda Enlund, father Jose Lozano and bonus father Peter Enlund.  Additionally, Additionally, Tyrone is survived by brother, Mickey Lozano and sister-in-law, Amanda, brother, J.R. Lozano, identical twin brother, Thomas Rivera, his sister, Alyssa Rael, and his daughter, Karla Villalobos.  


His early life began in Socorro, New Mexico where he was born and completed his early education.  He attended Socorro High School and worked for the high school radio station with his brother Thomas.  After high school Tyrone started his lifelong journey in the automotive industry in a local parts store.  Shortly after high school he moved to Albuquerque where he spent most of his years with a brief stint in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Tyrone's understanding of auto mechanics and auto body work drove his craft throughout his lifetime.  


Tyrone was passionate about two things: girls and motorcycles.  Both of which caused him great pain.  In 2003 Tyrone was in a horrific motorcycle accident leaving him paralyzed and in a wheelchair.  Adopting his new set of wheels did not stop his drive to give to others and love with his whole heart.  He was a stubborn "asshole" as many would say, but he was also the most giving and tenderhearted as all would agree.  His heart radiated a special love and gentleness towards children, especially the children of his friends and loved ones.  Mentioning the names of these children would be his wish to continue to show them they are loved and not forgotten, however, there are too many to mention.  Please know Tyrone loves you.  


Although Tyrone never married, his friendships with those around him were lifelong commitments. When Tyrone befriended you, you became his extended family.  His friends and family continuously were the most important part of his life.  Because of Tyrone's strong appreciation and love for his friends, his family extends a heartfelt invitation for all to attend his memorial service and Rosary prayer at 11:00am on Monday, May 16th.  Please join the family in this extension of love for Tyrone as he would not want to be remembered any other way than with everyone together.
