Tyler A. Myers was born on August 25, 1976, to Brian Myers and Patsy (Myers) Brosz in Aberdeen, SD. He graduated from Aberdeen Central High School in 1995, he then moved to Tucson, AZ. Several years later, he relocated to Portland, Oregon. There, Tyler worked as an assistant funeral director and head groundskeeper/turf manager at Beth-Israel Cemetery & Mausoleum. He worked for the city of Portland, maintaining park infrastructure and several prestigious golf courses as a turf and grounds technician. Tyler found his true love working outside on the course, backed by a family history of golfing, even as a young child. He felt a deep connection to the outdoors and turf. After a long day, Tyler could often be found taking a few golf clubs and unwind with a round on the same course. This was his home; this was where he felt the most connected to life.
Ty loved all things sports and was a life-long fan of his Indianapolis Colts. He played city league softball, schooled his athletic daughter in baseball and golf, and loved camping, campfires, the beach, and boating. Ty was never one to sit!
Those who knew Tyler knew that he was kindhearted and loved his family above all. He had an immense passion for being active in life and was always a source of excitement. Tyler would be found at the front of the line taking a snowboard run, doing a swan dive off a cliff, skiing, or taking lead in the raft as family and friends negotiated white-water rapids at peak river time. Tyler’s family and friends will miss him more than words can say.
Left behind to celebrate his life are his two daughters Phoenix and Peyton of Tigard, OR; his mother Patsy (Herb) Brosz of Aberdeen; father, Brian (Kathy) Myers, of Green Valley, AZ; brother, Tanner J. Myers, and his fiancé, Lisa Brown, of Aberdeen; step-siblings Heather Brosz-White, Erica Darling, and Daniel Brosz. Additionally, Tyler became a grandfather shortly after death when the world welcomed Brooklyn-Wray on April 9th.
Tyler was preceded in death by grandparents Dan and Wanda Myers, of Green Valley, AZ; grandmother, Melda Bunn of Waterloo, IA; grandfather, Les Parker of Palm Desert, CA; and uncle, Bob Parker of Pismo Beach, CA. Greeting him joyfully at the Bridge, was his beloved boxer, Driver.
