Tyler Michael Howie Ross was born on November 18, 1989, in Burnsville, MN to parents Thomas Howie and Deborah Ross. He grew up in Prior Lake, where Tyler was the little brother to Thomas “TJ”. As a young boy, he loved playing football, baseball, fishing, hunting, playing with his older brother and just having fun. When he became a dad, Tyler enjoyed spending summers boating and fishing with his daughter, playing outside, chocolate ice cream and being silly together. During the winter months, he could be found on the slopes snowboarding/tubing, sledding, and making snowmen with his daughter Jemma. Tyler attended school in the Prior Lake School District. Most of his career, he worked as a laser operator for Quality Tools.
Tyler loved being around people, hanging out with his daughter Jemma, spending time with his family, especially all his nieces and nephews, stepbrothers and sisters, and great friends. He enjoyed working on cars, barbequing, and making every gathering more enjoyable. His huge smile was infectious. He loved playing poker, card games and many board games with his daughter. Tyler was an avid Minnesota Vikings fan and loyal supporter of the other Minnesota teams.
A deep love of people, Tyler’s mission was always to put others needs first, before his own. He was forever present and took time helping family and friends. He would stop and help strangers stranded on the side of the road. A great sense of humor, Tyler had this contagious smile and laugh that lit up any room. His presence made you smile!
The greatest gift in Tyler’s life was the birth of his daughter, Jemma born on July 21, 2010. She was the twinkle in his eye and was so proud of her. Tyler relished the times spent with Jemma and had such a deep love for her.
Tyler Michael Howie Ross was kind, loving, caring and selfless. Forever loved, he will be forever missed by daughter, Jemma; mother, Debbie (Tim Coen) Ross-Coen; father, Tom (Kelly) Howie; brother, TJ Howie Ross; grandmother, Pat Ross: Step siblings Jasmine and Jessica Wagener, Chris (Liz Minne) Coen, Andy Coen, Trevor (Heather) Coen, Margo (Lucas) Johnson; many other relatives and friends.
