Tyler Alden Bird was born October 12, 2007 to Cody and Joanna (Hemry) Bird.
Tyler was all boy, full of spirit and fun, who loved to be with the “big boys” whether it was playing at the shed, riding his trike or shooting hoops. He was a busy boy who was always ready to go anywhere. He loved playing with his brothers Isaac and twin Sullivan, and the bond they shared was apparent. Tyler’s gentle smile could melt the hearts of those around him, his voice and thoughts could always be heard. He was a determined little boy with an energetic personality. He gave his family and friends the assurance that each day is a blessing. Tyler’s short time on the earth has touched so many lives; his life was a brief gift to his parents, brothers, family and friends. He will be sadly missed by all who know and love this precious little boy named Tyler. Through his journey in life we were able to create wonderful memories. He will always remain forever in our hearts and minds.
Tyler was preceded in death by his great grandparents, RL and Winona Trimm, Charles Everett and Romane Hemry, Roy and Lucile Thomas, great aunts, Jill Gooding and Marilyn Hemry and cousin David Sample.
