He was a member of a family of carvers well known for their work. Tyler's sisters are Prudencia Quam, Georgette Quam His brothers are Eldred and Andrew Quam. He was also father of 2 children with Joanna Cheama.

We ask you to join us in prayers for the family at this time.

I greatly admire the work of Tyler Quam. I have a shop in Maryland where I proudly display and sell his beautiful fetish carvings. I still have one of his black marble buffalos which I will keep and treasure. Although I did not know him personally, his majestic talent and artistic skill will be sorely missed. I send my sincere condolences to his family.
