Tyler David Colglazier, 31, of Nashville passed away suddenly in the early hours of Sunday morning, January 14th, 2018.

Born on April 27th 1986, Tyler is survived by his loving parents, David “Rick” Colglazier and Cynthia Colglazier. He is also survived by his sister, Megan Colglazier and niece, Carly Colglazier, step-grandfather, Edward Wolfley and close companion, Kersten Webb. Tyler was preceded in death by grandparents Margaret Colglazier, Ivan Colglazier, Irwin and Shirley Sedberry Wolfley.

Tyler was an individual who cherished the bonds he had with his good friends and family. He did not shy away from hard work, especially if it was outdoors. He started his own landscaping venture when he was in high school. He worked in grounds keeping and maintenance at the Brown County State Park and helped in developing a nationally acclaimed mountain biking trail at the Park. Most recently he was a waiter who served customers at Out of the Ordinary Restaurant. Tyler was a graduate of Columbus North High School and Ivy Tech. As a rough and tumble defenseman, Tyler thoroughly enjoyed participating in the Columbus Iceman hockey program. While in high school, much like his life, Tyler played the game with zeal and reckless abandon and incurred more than his fair share of minutes in the penalty box. He was a member of the Army Reserves from 2004 to 2012.

Tyler was amazingly resilient and had a huge heart and was always ready to help if anyone needed it. The last few years of his life, Tyler began to have a closer and more meaningful walk with God, especially during the time he spent at Wheeler Mission/Camp Hunt.

Tyler lived life like a “ball of fire” but throughout his time with us, he was a kind, loving and devoted son, brother, uncle, companion and friend who will be deeply missed.

Services will be held Friday January 19th at Westside Community Church, 124 Tipton Lakes Blvd. Columbus Indiana. Visitation will be from 9:00-11:00 am with the service to immediately follow.

The family has requested that memorial contributions be made to Wheeler Mission/Camp Hunt or to Westside Community Church.

Thank you for sharing all the wonderful photos. Looked through all of them and felt like I got to know Tyler a little bit. Especially enjoyed seeing pictures of young Rick as a Dad.
