He went to be with the Lord and his father, Don.
Tyler spent the last 26 months fiercely battling a rare cancer, Paraganglioma, that affects the neuroendocrine system. Tyler attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison on a full scholarship to play football and received his Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. After college he developed a love for mountain biking. He participated many times in the challenging Chequamegon 40 mile ride in Cable, WI. He was devastated when he could no longer enjoy the sport.
Tyler worked in the water purification industry for almost 25 years and developed many products for both residential and commercial use. He worked right up until the end of his life. His most recent position was as V.P. of Engineering at Ecowater He loved what he did-it brought him joy and kept his mind busy. Most importantly, Tyler wanted nothing more than to provide for his family and have exciting experiences making incredible lasting memories.
