As well as numerous aunts, uncles, extended family and friends.
Tyler was predeceased by his grandpa Allan Johnston, grandfather Robert Dheilly, and father-in-law Robert Allan Wells.
Tyler was born May 5th, 1990 in Steinbach, MB to parents Jacqueline Dheilly & Herbert Johnston. He attended school in La Broquerie. Tyler grew up on the family farm & in the farming industry alongside both his grandpas. This is where he developed an early love for the farming lifestyle. He spent many days jumping in the large puddles after rainfalls & playing on bales with his sister & cousins, riding in the tractor with grandpa & being grandma's shadow in the barn full of pigs.
Tyler met the love of his life Sam in 2013. After believing he would never become a husband, he married Sam Sept 16th,2018 on the family farm. Their family quickly grew with the addition of many fur babies, their pride & joy Diego & Sasha, along with many cats, chickens and bunnies.
Tyler loved the outdoors, him and Sam spent many weekends quadding, fishing & camping. Steep Rock, Reynolds ponds, Grandpa's gravel pits, the farm & his work tractor spreading manure were some of Tyler’s favourite places to be.
Tyler’s giving nature & hate for boredom contributed to his constant helping hand, he was always willing to help family & friends. This included cutting wood, lawn care, snow blowing, polishing Grandpa's semi, weed-wacking, washing the tractors & pulling strangers out of ditches. Regardless of the task Tyler was always happy to lend a helping hand.
In the last year Tyler proved himself wrong over & over again accomplishing many of the dreams he never thought possible, which included obtaining his drivers, owning his own car, his dream job along with knowing his worth when it came to his dream wage.
Tyler leaves a huge void in so many hearts but also leaves memories that will last a life time. We love you & will forever miss you.
