Tyler was a free spirit, possessed a great smile and was known to be fiercely loyal to his friends. Always wanting to be the best dad he could be, the greatest love in his life was his son Trent.

They also enjoyed going to the bookstore and playing video games together.

Tyler is survived by his mother, Eileen (William) Bert of Monroe; his beloved son, Trent Gruber of Maybee, MI; grandfather, Richard Gruber of Toledo, OH; grandmother, Mildred Bert of Monroe; sister, Shelby (Dustin) Roark of Petersburg, MI; step-sister, Jennifer Golen of Monroe; niece, Lyndsey Golen of Monroe; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.Tyler was preceded in death by his grandmother, Jane Gruber.

Family and friends may visit from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Bacarella Funeral Home in remembrance of Tyler. Cremation will follow in accordance with his wishes.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly asks that memorial contributions be made payable to Trent's grandmother, Eileen Bert, for a soon to be established trust fund for the benefit of Trent's future.

My condolences to your family. Tylers blue eyes and welcoming smile will forever stay in my heart. He indeed was a free spirit, always dancing to the beat of his own drum; his name will forever be in my families heart and his place will always be set at our table.
