Tyler grew up in a close loving family surrounding and he always enjoyed spending time at his family home. He enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. He was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone.

Tyler grew up in Kimberley with very special friends, many of whom, spent their last days with him at the hospital. While growing up, Tyler played hockey and baseball. Tyler loved spending summers camping with his family at McNair Lake. Later, Tyler enjoyed sledding, boating and mud bogging. Tyler was famously known for his passion of Ford trucks. He built them, bought them, drove them and blew them up at the mud bogs!

After high school, Tyler was employed by Precision Drilling for 14 years on rig #159. He started as a roughneck and proudly worked his way up to becoming the rig manager.
