    We are so sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. Beth Husom

    Ed was a fabulous guy who brought fun to the class of 1993. He’ll be missed by many. Take care through this tough time.

  3. Roberta Wood (aka Birdy/Bobbi Dolly)

    I am so sad and my heart breaks for all of you, but Azure, most of all. Just ask your grandpa, I know how it feels to lose a father, especially so suddenly. Simply put, it sucks. The best you can do is to take care of yourself and when you’re in a tight spot, think of what he would say. It will get you through. Saying I am sorry for your loss sounds hokie and insignificant, but it is heartfelt and honest. May God hold all of you tight in His arms and carry you through your grief. Love to you all, Birdy

  10. Michael Boyer

    We have all lost a good man, with a heart of gold. His time here was short, but he had such a grand impact on everyone who met him. The world seems a quieter, lonelier place now without him.

  11. Jacci Demarais

    My deepest condolences go out to Eddie’s family during this sad time. Eddie was a terrific person. You now have a very special guardian angel watching you from above.

  12. Roger Andrew Learned

    I feel deeply saddened and hurt by the loss of Ed. My thoughts and positive vibes are being sent your way, in a time where I can’t even begin to understand how much Ed must have meant to your family. Ed was a very close friend of mine, I live many miles away, but Ed is always close in my heart. Edward was a stand up guy, for real, he lived his life doing what he wanted. He was always so helpful to people in need. He was humorous, kind, real, loyal, loving, caring, smart, happy, helpful, energetic, staunch, and strong. I’m glad I got to know Ed Tyler so well. Without Ed in my life, I’m not sure where I’d be now. I will always have loving memories of my very good friend, Ed Tyler.

    Thinking of you, Roger Andrew Learned

  13. Jean Tazelaar

    My heartfelt sympathy to the family and friends of Ed. He was a longtime and wonderful friend of my son, Darren, and will be sadly missed… but never forgotten.

  14. Casey Weber from

    My heart is so heavy today. Eddie has been on my mind since I heard of his passing. I am SURE we would have seen him out to the first show on Sunday at Weber’s Deck. Though it was forecasted as a 70% chance of rain, it stayed dry for all but about 5 minutes. Pretty sure he had something to do with that. He will be missed. This Sunday’s show out at Weber’s Deck will be dedicated to him.

    RIP, Bro.

    Eddy’s family, I have a great fondness of Ed. He will always hold a place in my heart. He was an amazing friend, I’m sure a wonderful father, and a son that you could not be more proud of. Thank you for sharing him with us all.

  17. Dianne McLain

    Our son, Luke, was a friend with Eddy. We remember him as a young man with a big smile and always polite and respectful to my husband and myself. We are so sorry to hear of his death. Please know we are thinking of his family.

  18. shelley bruchmann held

    I remember you, Ed, as Dan and Eddie Dollys friend. I am sad to see a young man have his life cut short and a young father pass from his beloved child. Rest in peace, Ed, and know that you had many friends who care.

  22. Nicole Peter

    Eddie was such a powerful force in the world, he touched so many lives and somehow he would just be there whenever he was needed. I still wonder how he was able to be so many places at one time. He is in a better place now, I am happy for him. I just don’t know how to stop being sad because I miss him. I love you Eddie T, I will always hold you in my heart. I know he is all around us, his energy was so strong he could never really be gone. To Ed’s family: I am so sorry for your loss and no words could ever express my gratitude for bringing such a wonderful person into this world!!

  23. Rebecca Wright

    Ed was a wonderful friend. I knew Ed since we were 11 years old. Every time I saw Ed he would give me a great big hug.
    I remember a time when we went to a movie, him and his parents picked me up in their hearse, which I thought was freaky (at that time anyway) and afterwards they thought it would be fun to go out on Buffalo Lake (it was winter of course). I totally freaked out because I thought we would go thru the ice. Ed’s Dad did “donuts” and Ed just smiled and laughed and held my hand to comfort my fears. We would laugh at that memory every time. Throughout high school and after, he was the friend who you could count on to be there for you.
    I will miss Ed. My thoughts & prayers are with his family and everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. He was truly a great person and will be missed deeply.

  24. Donna L. Andrassy


    I’m sorry for your loss. I, too, lost a child, so I understand your grief. My thoughts are with you.

  25. Tammie Palmer


    My thoughts and prayers are with you. May God comfort you and your family during this time of great loss.

  26. Bob Rath

    Words can’t describe your pain, I’m sure.
    My wife, Susan, and I send our condolences. Edward will be in our prayers.

  27. Darrick Van Horne

    Eddie, you were my best friend. I will miss you dearly for the rest of my days here until we meet again. You shared so much of yourself with everyone you ever knew. You were loved by every person whose life you touched. You were the best friend a person could have. I cry tears of sorrow because you were taken from me, but I cry tears of joy when I think of the better place you have gone to. RIP, My brother.

  28. Melanie Griswold

    We are all thinking of you here at Blitz. My deepest sympathy.


  29. Ryan Sandell

    My thoughts and prayers go out to all of Ed’s friends and family. He was a wonderful friend, chef, and all around great person who was always the life of, if not the reason for, the party. His presence and friendship will be sorely missed, may he rest in peace.

  30. Troy Brueske

  36. Erin Enger

    I have known and been friends with Ed since first grade. He has always been the guy that anyone could be friends with. We had such a blast together at the 10 year reunion, and it makes me so sad that he won’t be at the next one. My heart goes out to his family and all of his friends. I know he was loved by many.

  37. Mike Kearn

    To Ed’s family, I was so sorry to read about the accident in the paper today. I remember all of the fun we had growing up together in the
    neighborhood. I remember dragging him to school when neither of us really wanted to go. But I will always remember Eddie’s voice of reason and for the little I may have given him, he gave me a lot more. My sincerest condolences on your loss.

  38. Peter J. Miller

    Ed- You were always the first to arrive and the last to leave. We had many, many good and great times together, just the two of us, but more often with many friends. I know all of our good and excellent friends are together remembering you as you are: a wonderful friend, a fan of (sometimes lousy) music (you always made fun of dream theater and rush, you jerk), you were someone we could count on. When I was feeling low, you always had a way of kicking me in the ribs just enough to make me laugh and forget what was getting me down in the first place. On the rare occasion that you were down, I happily returned the favor. You always offered (usually unsolicited) advice and perspective on life and problems of life and the community and the world, and it was received as it was intended; with good humor. Good humor, good music, good meat, good beer, good times. Always. The Monticello VFW was barely big enough for you alone, I hope it can handle all of your friends. We will all miss you and remember the great times we each and all had with you.

  39. Deseree Hileman

    Seems we just started talking again after all them years we drifted only to have you gone again…all those late night talks, hours chatting, sorry I never found Carrie Wokson for you, I miss you, seems alot of my friends are leaving me this year. Well, you are still with great ones above!! Until we meet again, love you bro, Deseree

  40. Deb Nelson

    Paula and family – Tom and I want you to know that you and your family have been in our thoughts and prayers daily. We pray that your wonderful memories of your son are what sustain you now and in the days ahead. God bless you and keep you.
    Best always, Deb and Tom Nelson

  41. Wanda and Sunil Sapatnekar
