Tyler loved the outdoors. Some of his favorite outdoor activities were camping, hiking, paddle boarding, swimming, making fires, and playing horseshoes. Tyler also enjoyed going to Kernels games, watching any Iowa Hawkeye game, and attending county fairs, where he especially loved going on rides, winning prizes, and the food. He was a talented artist and liked painting. Most of all, he loved spending time with his family, friends, and pets, especially his beloved dog Barb, Carl the Cat, and the countless strays he has brought in.
