Tyler Claye Ernst


Tyler Claye Ernst
It’s with heavy hearts that we are informing you of the sudden passing of Tyler Claye Ernst, the son of Terreigh and Gloria on the morning of October 31st 2023 in his home at the age of 60.

Tyler was a great provider to his spouse, kids and grandchildren. You could depend on him to help the community whenever the need would arise. A better teacher than any professor, a better mentor than any seasoned professional. A fathers wisdom, a son's guiding principle. In his own way, Tyler left a lasting mark on our life. A loving grandfather who loved spending time with his grandkids outside. You could find him working on mechanical projects or in the garage with his sons, teaching and mentoring. He enjoyed going for drives with his granddaughters and his dog down through the woods in the Argo. You could also find him doing one of his many other hobbies which include riding his motorcycles, building and flying model airplanes or in the woods off roading or hunting. He will be sorely missed by his family and friends. He was a fun loving brother and his most prized possession was his spouse, kids and grandchildren.

Leaving with fond and loving memories are his beloved spouse of 33 years, Ruth; sons, Justin (Cecilia), Jared(Sarah) and Adrian; grandchildren, Malachi, Cyrus, Aurora and Ariana; siblings, Kevin(Sherry) and Donnie; mother-in-law, Ethel(Theodore) and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Tyler was predeceased by his parents, Terreigh and Gloria BJ (Graves) Ernst; father-in-law, Arthur and several aunts and uncles.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Diabetes Canada or the family.
