A 29-year-old North Texas youth hockey coach dies from complications due to COVID-19.


The funeral for Tyler Amburgey was held at Buckingham Road Church of Christ in Garland on Saturday.


According to the Dallas County health officials, they found a cluster of coronavirus tied to youth hockey.

Amburgey took his last breathe in his home in Northeast Dallas on August 29.


Dallas County health officials reported that more than 30 players and coaches in youth hockey are COVID-19 positive after a youth hockey tournament held in our area last weekend.

His friends and family members held a socially distant memorial service for Amburgey Saturday morning.


Before he became a coach, he played hockey for the USA youth team and other teams.


Further reports from the Dallas County Health and Human Services stated that 28 youth hockey athletes and five coaches are coronavirus positive.


Phil Huang, Dallas County's health director said, "We have moved down from red to orange, but there is still significant transmission in the community for those situations where there is significant close contact, and you can't be doing the universal masking, we would recommend not doing that."
