James Tyler Dockins Obituary

With great sorrow, we announce the unexpected passing of Tyler Dockins.  James Tyler Dockins was born on December 28, 1998 in Branson and entered into rest on March 13, 2024 in Branson at the young age of 25.

Tyler grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada and attended high school in Gardnerville, Nevada.  He spent time between Nevada and Branson before settling here.  Tyler’s kind and funny personality endeared him to so many people. He was always the life of the party, always happy, loved to joke and loved to have fun.  He was polite, sweet, ambitious, friendly and had the greatest laugh that was contagious.  He had so many friends and made friends easily but his best friends were his mother, his sisters and little brother.  Tyler also had an entrepreneurial spirit and already owned his home at a young age.  Along with being a great guy, so likeable and happy, he will also be remembered for his love of food and his interests in music, shoes, guns and cars. 

To Tyler, family was everything.  Words cannot describe how much he will be missed by his family and friends.  He leaves behind his mother, Yolanda Rauth and step-father Benjamin Allcorn of Rockaway Beach; his father, Steven Dockins of Kansas City; his siblings, Alysia Greco, Kierra Greco, Alexus Emerick and Jaxon Allcorn all of Rockaway Beach; his grandparents, Lavonne Harris of Branson, Cynthia Lehman of Rogers, AR and Douglas Allcorn of Tahlequah, OK along with his great-grandmother, Sandy Eisenman of Branson.

A celebration of Tyler’s life will be held Thursday, March 21, 2024 at Snapp-Bearden Funeral Home & Crematory in Branson.  Visitation will begin at 1:00 p.m. followed by a memorial service at 2:00 p.m. in the funeral home.
