MFSO Leader from West Virginia Loses Son To Suicide

We were extremely saddened to learn that Marcia Westbrook’s youngest son, Tyler, died by suicide Thursday morning.  Tyler Milam Westbrook, a member of the Special Forces in the Army,  was stationed at Ft. Carson, CO.  Although we are always aware of the possibility of this happening to each one of us, this news has been devastating to all of us in Military Families Speak Out.

Marcia has been working steadily with the Steering Committee since our rebuild and also serves on the Rapid Response Team, the executive board of MFSO and has had three sons in the military since 9-11.

Cards and condolences to the family can be sent to Marcia Westbrook at:

814 Victoria Ave.

Williamstown, WV 26187

Tyler’s family will be greeting friends from noon until 8 p.m. Saturday, at the Marietta Chapel of Cawley & Peoples Funeral Home, 408 Front St., Marietta. Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, at the Williamstown High School Gymnasium.

A complete obituary will be printed in Friday’s edition of the Parkersburg News and Sentinel, or may be viewed at
