GARDNER-Jenkins, Tyler Jacob age 35, passed away on May 12, 2018 in Olathe, KS, after a brief illness. He bravely chose to give the gift of life through organ and tissue donation. He is survived by his adoring fiancee, Angela Lake, his beloved daughter, Morgan Kaye and her mother Natasha, his mother Cherie Flisram (Daniel), brother Matt Jenkins (Crispian) and many beloved aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Tyler was a member of the US Army for three years and served in combat zones throughout his duty. Born and raised in Wichita, KS, he was also a longtime resident of Ottawa, KS, where he still worked. Tyler worked with the disabled and children for the majority of his career, most recently in the child welfare field. He loved animals, music, movies, and adventures with his daughter. His funny, kind, free-spirited nature will be missed by every heart Tyler touched. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Music Unites (www.musicunites.org) or The Brain Aneurysm Foundation (www.bafound.org). The family will be setting up a separate fund for Tyler's daughter. Services will be held at a later date.
