From the age of six Tyler raced quarter midgets, winning the Western Grand Nationals three times. He had a love of fast cars and motorcycles.

He was blessed with many friends whom he loved dearly. Touching the lives of so many, Tyler was never afraid to express himself freely giving hugs and always helping not just his loved ones, but anyone in need. Always the first to shake a hand or offer assistance, Tyler's love of people defined him.
