However, the spokesperson did not mention the cause of death and said the investigations are still ongoing to find out the reason behind the couple’s death.
Gregory Tyree Boyce brought to life Tyler Crowley in Twilight.
It’s because of him that Bella finally starts thinking about Edward as something not human.
Sadly, he was not credited on the Breaking Dawn Part 2 ending credits.
Thank you for Tyler. May he rest in peace. pic.twitter.com/1xpnaogeNH

Gregory Tyree Boyce debuted the first part of the Twilight movie. He was the guy who almost crashed his car into Bella ( Kristen Stewart), but Edward Cullen ( Robert Pattinson) stopped the car and prevented the collision.
Gregory left behind his 10-year-old daughter named Alaya in care of his relatives (most probably his mother Lisa Wayne), who also paid tribute to her deceased son on Facebook.
She wrote, ” My baby boy, Greg Boyce was the best chef….oh man. He was in the process of starting a wing business, West Wings.”
She further added, ” He created the flavors to his perfection and named them after west coast rappers. Snoop Dog, Kendrick Lamar, Roddy Ricch, The Game, etc. He had flavors like, Tequila Lime Agave…those were my favorite. A Hennessy Maple flavor, oh man, just so damn good.”
The post further read, ” I can say that my son was my favorite chef. He was on to something great, and that was his passion.”
Lisa Wayne also talked about how Gregory Tyree Boyce, along with his girlfriend, made a great team and had been working hard on their business plan, which was “all in the making.”
She further expressed her sorrow at the loss of her son and said she was going through a lot of pain after losing her son at the time of the quarantine. She also said she lost 7lbs and remembered all the time she spent together with him and the family.
Many friends and colleagues have also been paying tribute to Gregory Tyree Boyce and his girlfriend.
We all hope wherever his soul is; it remains in peace with the love of his life.
