“We all loved him so much,” Kyler wrote. “He made me the man I am today.”
His son also described him as a “great man” with an interest in car shows and motorcycles.
Greeson, a father of five with high blood pressure, was reportedly on the phone with his wife when he fell to the sidewalk and was unable to be revived by emergency personnel, according to a New York Times reporter who watched the situation unfold.

“He felt like it was a monumental event in his mind,” his wife, Kristi Greeson, told the Times. “I didn’t want him to go. I didn’t feel like it was safe.”
Phillips, a computer programmer from Pennsylvania who founded the website Trumparoo for the president’s supporters to communicate, suffered a stroke.
He called Wednesday “the first day of the rest of our lives,” according to The Inquirer.
Phillips’ friends claimed that he said that the year should be named Zero because something would happen.

Boyland was “trampled in the Rotunda,” her family confirmed to the Daily Mail after police said she may have been “crushed” in the mob.
Boyland’s family in Georgia added that it was her first Trump event and that they try to convince her not to go, while she was also hesitant about attending.
Her brother-in-law Justin Cave blames Trump for her death.

“I personally believe we should invoke the 25th Amendment.”
Acting Chief for the Metropolitan Police Department, Robert Contee III, earlier said he believes that the three died from medical emergencies.

Alongside the fatalities, several others were seriously injured in clashes after rioters fought cops and pushed their way inside the building.
Rep. Tim Ryan, the chair of the committee that funds Capitol Police, also confirmed that 15 cops were hospitalized.
This is the latest installment of the Capitol chaos that has ensued this week.
