“Surrounded by his parents and brother, Tyler peacefully entered the Kingdom of Heaven on January 21, 2018… Our son Tyler brought more inspiration in his 16 years than most do in a lifetime. Tyler was born with Juvenile Batten Disease but didn’t show signs of the terminal, neurodegenerative disease until he was 8 years old. Tyler loved every sport and was born a natural athlete like his dad. Tyler played t-ball until he began to lose his fine and gross motor skills, his vision, and suffered from seizures and eventually was no longer able to walk or talk. His favorite team was the Cubs and there was always a pitching machine or a batting tee in our backyard. Ty loved getting up early as a 6-year-old to go golfing with his dad or hitting golf balls in the woods behind our home. He loved the adventure of riding his dirt bike so far out that we couldn’t see him, but we were always thankful for his return.”
