He had a wonderful way of spreading that energy and love for life to everyone he came in contact with. One thing special about Tyler was his ability to be friends with a wide variety of people. Whenever he spoke to people, they would instantly light up, and a smile would quickly spread across their faces. Tyler especially enjoyed working at the Boys & Girls Club and attending Young Life. Tyler will be remembered as a beautiful, brilliant, energetic, fun-loving, happy, confident young man who loved his family and his friends. This was shown by the more than 900 people who attended his services. He will truly be missed. He is survived by his parents, Steve and Kathy Herbst, his sister, Tiffany, and many other relatives from MO that were all present for the services.
