On October 5th, 2015 Tyeler and Ashley were married in Lander. In June of 2016 they welcomed their second son, Elijah.

Throughout their schooling, Tyeler worked a variety of jobs ensure that his boys and wife were provided for. Tyeler and Ashley welcomed their third son, Jonah, in June of 2019. After helping a man in need while at dinner one night, Tyeler discovered his true calling and decided to pursue EMS. Tyeler worked full time, took care of his three boys, and took his EMT-Basic class all at the same time. In July of 2021 the family moved to Saratoga. Tyeler quickly joined the South Central Wyoming EMS service as a volunteer. Then in November of 2021 Tyeler became an EMT/ ER Technician at Memorial Hospital of Carbon County. He was studying for the final exam to become an EMT-Advanced at the time of his passing.
Tyeler loved his wife and three boys. His family was everything and he always tried to stay connected to out of town family. An all-around country boy, Tyeler loved his guns, fishing, camping, and hunting with his grandparents, father, and boys. He combined his passions with his parenting style and wanted to raise his boys to love God and respect the land and people He created. Every lesson Tyeler tried to teach his boys involved working hard for what you get, and helping those in need. Working as an EMT, Tyeler saw people at their most vulnerable, but would always have a smile on his face and offer a shoulder to cry on. He never met a stranger that he didn’t connect with and always had to have people laughing either through his jokes or crazy accents. Although Tyeler left the arts in college, you could always hear him singing in the shower. He also had a million art projects going on around the house.
Tyeler brought the energy to the room with his booming laugh and contagious smile. He will be missed dearly by his wife Ashley and three boys Noah, Elijah, and Jonah, his parents Jason and Kathie, sister Sharrayah, brother in law Will and nephew Samuel, his parents-in-law Brandi and David, sister-in-law Alyssia and brother-in-law Hazer, all of his grandparents Kirk, Diana, LaRena, Kathy and many, many cousins, aunts, and uncles.
