TYLER FRANCIS DER
December 9, 1983 ~ February 5, 2015
It is with inconceivable sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of
Tyler Francis Der who was tragically taken from us on February 5th, 2015 at the young age of 31. Devastatingly missed and loved more than he ever imagined by his mom Maureen Tighe, father Allan Der, stepfather Grant
Oystensen and brother Brett Oystensen. Ty is survived by grandparents
Louise Der, Christena Tighe, Ed Oystensen, loving aunts and uncles
Christy, Mary, Cathy, Jeannie, Janet, Francis, Douglas, Hoi-Yin, Anne,
Andrea, Penelope, Tobias, their spouses and many cousins. Also lovingly missed by his girlfriend Hailey Bjorndal. Ty and Hailey were embarking on ‘their new adventure’ together to Grand Prairie when the accident occurred.
Ty was a true Rupert boy, affectionately known as “Der” to all his best friends, and never happier than when he was with them.
Ty was a loving, gentle and kind person who was known by all for his
unwavering loyalty to his friends, ‘his’ Baltimore Ravens and his massive infectious smile.
A Celebration of Life for Ty will be held in the Convention Centre at Chances on Sunday February 15th from 2 – 5pm.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to
“Tyler Der/Hailey Bjorndal Fund” at the Northern Savings Credit Union
