Tyler Edward Simonson
Tyler Edward Simonson passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, May 19, 2009.
He made his surprise arrival in this world when he was born Nov. 15, 1977 in Pocatello, ID, the only son of Elgin and Barbara Simonson. He married his sweetheart, Sherry Robinette on Aug. 4, 2006 in Springfield, ID.
Tyler attended Aberdeen High School where he was a champion wrestler. He also attended trade school at Idaho State University then continued on and became employed as a commercial truck driver. At the time of his passing he was living in Brigham City, UT, with his wife and children and working as a foreman for Granite Construction.
Being the youngest of five sisters, he was afforded the opportunity to be raised alongside his nieces and nephews which meant that he also had five sister-mothers he had to report to. We love him more than words can articulate!
He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. Playing practical jokes on his sisters, nephews, nieces and friends with his signature goofy grin always on display. Tyler was a sweet, honest, hard working man with a heart of gold and was often known to offer help to anyone in need no matter the task. He was a loving father and husband and enjoyed spending time with his family.
His departure from this earth has left a giant hole in the hearts of all who knew and loved him although we know that he will always be near us through the lives of his two sweet little angelic girls, Brianna and TyLynn.
He is survived by his loving wife Sherry; two beautiful daughters, Brianna and TyLynn; three stepsons; Braxton, Karsen and Kaleb; one stepdaughter, Mersadies; his wonderful parents Barbara and Elgin, Grandview; five sisters, Debi Behrend, Blackfoot, Shawna Kendell, Las Vegas, NV, Michelle Vollmer, Grandview, Kimberly Simonson, Salt Lake City, UT, and Yolanda (Ron) Nilsson, Sterling; one uncle, Boyd Simonson, Aberdeen; three aunts, Janet Schurz, Temecula, CA, Judy Raines, Carrolton, TX, and Kathy Martin, Fort Hall; many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his grandparents and brothers-in-law, Joe Behrend and Kenneth Vollmer.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made at any Zions Bank in Tyler Simonson’s name.
Funeral services were held Saturday, May 23, at the Lakeview LDS Chapel in Lakeview, ID. Family greeted friends on Saturday from 10 to 11:30 a.m. with funeral services following shortly thereafter. Internment at Springfield Cemetery.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal. Tyler we love and miss you!
