1999 - 2022

On Monday July 18, 2022 at Boundary Trails Health Centre, Tyler Klassen, 23 of Morden, MB passed away.
Tyler Douglas Klassen was born on February 10th 1999, at 7:09 in the evening at the Morden General Hospital to Darrel and Tammy Klassen. Tyler was baptized upon the confession of his faith on April 24th, 2022, in his home by pastor Allen Kehler and pastor (uncle) James Peters. This was such a special day, Jesus was right there with His arms of peace wrapped around Tyler. Tyler loved Jesus and shone the light of His glory everyday of his life. So many times, we have been so blessed to hear stories of how Tyler was an example of the great love of Jesus. He was born with many health challenges and yet lived a life of joy, happiness, forgiveness and peace. He was always ready and willing to help whether it was mowing grass, or trimming the Saskatoon bush on the yard, knocking down walls in the garage, vacuuming for mom, helping dad at home or Mr. Enns fix things at school (dad and Mr. Enns were always ready to let Ty help). Tyler loved tools, he would jump at the chance to use any of them big or small if someone would offer. He loved his years at school, he had so many fabulous people love and care for him. When they were younger Tyler loved playing kitchen or baby dolls with Daphne and sit on her bed while she worked or played in her room. Tyler always needed his sister Daphne or "hi" as he called her, especially at bedtime. He would say I want Hi, I want Hi! After she got married to Tyler 2.0 he always had to FaceTime them to say goodnight. Tyler got a new camper trailer from the Make-A-Wish Foundation when he was young, camping was definitely Tyler's favourite thing to do. Helping dad make a fire, having movie night in the camper and having friends and family join us for a visit. Tyler had the most fabulous respite workers, he was always loved and taken care of when we would go out for a couple of hours. When Daphne married, she gave him such a wonderful gift... a brother-in-law named Tyler. Becoming uncle Ty was also a huge joy, he loved Luke so much. Tyler loved to have them over for movie nights and go to their house. Tyler lost his Morden grandma and grandpa as well as great grandma and grandpa. This left a huge hole in his life. He spent a lot of time in the Children's Hospital in Winnipeg and Boundary Trails Health Centre. We are so thankful for all the love and care he received. He had homecare for the last couple of years and was so thankful for each and everyone that came to care for him. Tyler has always been so loved and accepted by everyone and we know he loved each of us as well. Special thank you to Dr. Convery, palliative care nurse Deanne, homecare coordinator Sasha Mange and all the people that touched Tyler's life. Tyler's world had no limits, he was never told he could not do or be something he wanted to be. Grandparents, aunts, uncles cousins and friends thank you all for the love you have poured out to Tyler over the 23 years of his life. A big thank you to the Morden Fire Department family, this was one of Tyler's biggest joys. With all your help you made his dreams come true, he became an honorary firefighter!
He is survived by his parents Darrel and Tammy Klassen of Morden, MB, one sister, Daphne, her husband, Tyler Penner, and their son, Luke as well as grandma and grandpa Klassen and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Tyler was predeceased by his great grandparents, Diedrich and, Sara Fehr and his Morden grandparents, William and Mary Klassen. I can't think of anywhere Tyler would rather be then safe in the arms of Jesus. Till we meet again, our dear son!
Funeral service was held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday July 23, 2022 at the Morden EMMC with interment at Hillside Cemetery. If friends so desire, donations may be made in Tyler's memory to the Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba.
