Tyler was born on November 30, 1993 in Anacortes, WA to Cammie Carrigan and Eugene "Huge" Edwards. Tyler passed away on March 24, 2013.
Tyler attended school at the La Conner Schools District and the Darrington Schools District. Tyler always had a big smile and love to make people laugh. His passion was mechanic work; he was always willing to help out any one that was having troubles. He loved to go hiking, play softball, hunting and especially loved to go mudding to see how far he could get and if he broke something he got to fix it.
He looked forward to going on the "big walk" every year, he enjoyed being in the mountains, he would spend three days at a time hiking and camping and learning about the animals and the natural settings. Tyler had a free spirit, he loved to spend time with many different people, and sometimes he would make it to four different reservations in a weekend.
He was part of the Swinomish Canoe Family, and a member of the St. Paul's Catholic Church. He had goals of going to school to do under water welding and auto mechanics. Tyler touched people everywhere he went; he will be missed by everyone who knew him.
Tyler was preceded in death by his grandma, Donna Williams; his great-grandma, Pee Wee; great-grandfather, Gus Wilson of Duncan B.C.; his name sake, great-great-grand grandmother Helen Ross; great-grandparents Chet and Velma Cayou, Eleanor and Walt O'Leary and George Bailey; his uncles Curtis Bailey and Wayne Bob; his aunts Cassandra Cayou and Beth Montoya.
Tyler is survived by his mom and dad; his brother, Austin Edwards; two sisters, Andrea and Alexia Edwards; grandparents, Joe and Sophie Bailey and Eugene Carrigan; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
