In memoriam

Tyler Riveron, 1991-2016.




It is with great sadness that we inform you of a devastating loss in the officiating community. Tyler Riveron, son of NFL senior supervisor of officiating Al Riveron, passed away on Sunday, Sept. 25. He was 24.

Services were held in Miami earlier this week.

Our hearts are with Al and his wife, Patty, as well as Tyler’s brother, Austin. We hope that family, friends, and faith can guide them through this most difficult of times. On behalf of myself and our staff, I offer our heartfelt condolences.
