Ty Pant

May 19, 1961 ~ March 27, 2023 (age 61) 61 Years Old


Ty Allen Pant, 61 of Kendallville, went to be with his Lord and Savior on March 27, 2023, at Advent Health Gordon in Calhoun, GA. He and his family had just finished a wonderful weeklong vacation. After stopping for the evening on the way home, he experienced a sudden heart attack. Ty was born in Kendallville, Indiana on June 19, 1961, to the late Larry and Norma (Cox) Pant. He has been a resident of Kendallville most of his life and graduated from East Noble High School in 1979. Ty went on to the University of Northwest Ohio where he obtained his associate degree in Auto Diesel Mechanics. He was a loving father of three and adoring husband to his wife Mary Jo Pant. Ty and Mary Jo met at a church event and fell in love; they married on September 17, 1988. He and his family have always been involved in church ministry and he was the sound tech director at Independent Full Gospel for over 15 years. Ty dedicated his life to God, church, and family. He was currently employed as a shift supervisor for Silgan Plastics in Ligonier where he worked for over 30 years and was looking forward to retirement in June. Ty took a few years off and owned Tropical Treasures Pet Shop in Kendallville with his wife Mary Jo. He loved lake life, fishing, grilling, and living on Tamarack Lake. Ty enjoyed drag racing, monster trucks, and collecting Corvettes. His most favorite and cherished pastime was spending quality time with his loving family and grand dogs. He was a great example of a man that followed God and there is no doubt his
legacy followed him to Heaven.
