There is no such thing as just one favorite memory with Tyler. From spending almost every day together in past summers, riding mini go-carts down my street, driving around with the windows down blasting music, swimming at Harrison Bay, to just sitting and talking about life. He was always there for me with open arms if I was happy or sad, and always made sure to hug me every time I saw him. There wasn’t a time where we didn’t say “I love you” before hanging up the phone or leaving after hanging out. Tyler told me how important it was because you never knew when it would be the last time you told someone you loved them.
I love you Tyler. You are forever in my heart.

Tyler was a great friend to my son, Henry. He would come to my house and hang out with Henry and was ALWAYS so well mannered with a kind spirit and willing to help Henry bring the groceries in from the car or take the garbage out!! He was willing to assist in any way he could.

I must believe that God needed a good angel to watch over us and that’s the reason He went to Heaven so early in his young life. There will be a day, when we will ALL join Tyler and rejoice with Jesus!

Until that day comes, may God hold all of his family and friends with peace, strength and comfort, as I know you all were so proud of him and he will be missed by ALL who knew him. ❤️🙏

The Dahlke family is so glad to have been close to Tyler. Memories of him and Cameron running around will always be some of my favorite. He was a truly great kid, one to look up to and treasure. He was loving and fun and made our BCA years something special. As with all of the BCA kids, he felt like my own. I'm only sorry we couldn't have stayed little forever and experience a little of that fun and love right now. We will miss him, but hold on to his memory with great affection.

theres so many memories i could tell that i have with Tyler, all of which are my favorite. from spending almost every weekend with him, to going to riverbend together every night, from riding four wheelers at my old house, to driving around in my brothers truck with him, going swimming, hiking and jumping off cliffs, him always always always messing with me, his endless words of advice and always being there to listen when you needed him no matter what time of day it was & always reminding me of my worth and the seriousness of saying I love you. his contagious laugh & smile is one i will never ever forget. to a life long bestfriend, and although he wasnt blood he was most definitely family. i will miss you more than imaginable & we all gained the BEST guardian angel. My thoughts and prayers go out to all family and friends. Fly High TD , I love you forever and ever.
