Carson Trey Styron was born on July 14, 2002 to proud parents, Nate & Carley Styron. They would soon realize they brought into the world an adventurous, loving, loud, outgoing, caring, determined leader who would do anything to make people smile & laugh.
Carson started playing baseball with FME (Fife Milton Edgewood Little League) at the age of 5 and grew to love the sport. At age 10, he took it up a notch joining the select team Crimson Cubs. With hard work, at age 12 he became the lead catcher. He was one of the best, often being referred to as the "Feared Captain America". His love for baseball continued to grow by helping coach along side his dad, earning the title of Coach Carson on his little brother CJ's team. At age 13 he began umpiring as well for FME. Carson loved the game of baseball not only as an athlete, but also because of unity and all it means to be apart of a team. He was the first team member to lift others up.
Carson was tragically taken from us on June 5, 2016 in an ATV accident. The outpour of support that comes from family & friends, the community and the baseball family has been truly inspiring. It has lifted a huge burden off the Styron family both emotionally & financially.
Carson was not only a top-notch baseball player, but was a determined young man. Determined to be a good son, brother, family member, friend and citizen. He was a young man who loved everyone, treated all with kindness & respect and embraced life with open arms.
The Carson Trey Styron Foundation has been set up to keep the legacy of Carson alive for generations to come. While impacting communities, as we know Carson would have continued to do in his life.
"Carson would want everyone to carry on and be dedicated in everything that you do. Dedicate yourself to doing what you love, what makes you happy and to being a better person. Let Carson’s warm spirit live on in all of you. If he was here today, he would do anything to make us laugh. I (Nate) would always tell Carson that baseball is like life. A win is a win, but loss builds character. Through this loss, we ask that you live your life like Carson did. He lived it loving life, laughing, being determined, and positively impacting everyone around him"
