He graduated from Ogallala High School with the class of 2007. Following 7 years of service Tyler received an honorable discharge, and made his home in Las Vegas, NV. Despite earning an impressive service record, the rigors of conflict left an indelible impression on Tyler. In the coming years he attended UNLV seeking a career in entertainment engineering.

Despite the apparent trappings of success that he'd enjoyed throughout much of his life, Tyler struggled with the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Deteriorating relationships and his struggle with PTSD ultimately resulted in a tragedy that has left family and friends in a state of despair and sorrow. The depth of this pain and loss can only be healed by the grace of Jesus. May His comfort be known and felt by all who are hurting. Tyler was preceded in death by his son, Nova; grandpa, Gary Knaub; 2 uncles, Spencer "Duke" Knaub & Casey "Rooster" Casavant; & brother-in-law, Tyrell Anderson.
