Tyler was born in Miles City, Montana on December 27th, 1981 to Alyssa & Greg. Tyler had the fortune and opportunity to grow up and live in a several different places throughout his life. It profoundly shaped who he was a man. The majority of his childhood he spent with his mother in Reno Nevada while his teen years to early adulthood he spent in Parkville Missouri. When Tyler entered his thirties he decided to move to the frigid tundra of Minnesota.  During his time in Minnesnowta Tyler was able to learn the trade of carpentry work, driving in crazy weather and develop a closer bond to his father, sisters, nieces and nephews. He also made many friends. After becoming a master of his trade, Tyler knew it was time to come back home to Missouri to spend time with his children and be the best father he could be to them. Tyler’s family would like everyone to know he was a loving and proud father, kind soul, an outdoorsman, camper and fisher and great friend. His children want Tyler and everyone to know that they know he tried to be the best dad he could be with what he had, but he was already a perfect dad in their eyes.
