MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE: Tyre Nichols, who died three days after a confrontation with the Memphis police during a traffic stop was a loving father to his son and a beloved to his family. Following the tragic incident, Nichols' grieving family has come out to let people know the man he was as a son and a father. His mother RowVaughn Wells called him a "good boy" and talked about how he used to spend his time on Sundays doing laundry and setting things for the upcoming week.“Does that sound like somebody that the police said did all these bad things?” Nobody’s perfect OK, but he was damn near.”
Wells went on speaking high of her late son and said, “I know everybody says that they had a good son, and everybody’s son is good, but my son, he actually was a good boy,” CNN reported. Following the failure to intervene, failure to offer aid to Nichols, and for using excessive force after Nichols was pulled over for suspected reckless driving, the five Memphis officers Tadarrius Bean, Demetrius Haley, Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills Jr., and Justin Smith were fired from duty last week. Nichols, 29, died on January 10 after he succumbed to injuries from the beating.

Was Tyre Nichols married?
Tyre Nichols who died in the brutal beating in Memphis loved his fatherhood and cared for his little son, according to his family. Nichols who was very fond of his four-year-old son used to post pictures of his child on social media, as per an unconfirmed report. At the family's news conference, attorney Benjamin Crump said, “Everything he was trying to do was to better himself as a father for his four-year-old son,” CNN reported.
Speaking on behalf of the victim's family, Crump said, “When he comes through the door, he wants to give you a hug,” Crump said, speaking on behalf of Nichols’ family. The victim who was a FedEx employee shifted to Memphis just before the Covid-19 pandemic. He was stuck at the place he moved to as things shut down. His mother Wells said, “But he was OK with it because he loved his mother.”
According to an unconfirmed report, Nichols was previously in a relationship with a girl named Katie. His son whose name has not been revealed was born from his ex-girlfriend.
Recalling memories of his son, Wells laughingly said, “He had my name tattooed on his arm, and that made me proud because most kids don’t put their mom’s name, but he did. My son was a beautiful soul and he touched everyone.”
