Tyler was a good man. He could make you laugh no matter how bad ur day was going. He was an excellent dad and megan was so lucky to have him. Tyler would never refuse to help anyone who needed it. When I think of him I remeber the good times we had together from the time I met in gradeschool up until we were adults. Going camping and wandering around looking for arro wheads. We had some great times and I am thankful for the time we did get together... I will always have you in my heart Tyler. ..

Our family will always remember Tyler. I worked with Tyler, in his reading group at Pelican school. He was always polite and sweet to me. Tyler played in Little League baseball with 2 of my sons.And football at KU. They remember Tyler well. Such a shame for Tyler's family and loved ones. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
