Tyler John Hole, age 23, of Hudson, passed away unexpectedly Feb. 19, in River Falls.
Tyler was born March 3, 1989, in River Falls, Wis., the son of John and Sherri (Kreutzian) Hole. Tyler graduated from Hudson High School's class of 2007. While in high school, Tyler played football and participated in many school and church activities, was voted prom prince, and was proudly involved in the Youth Synod Board at Bethel Lutheran Church. Most recently, Tyler was working on his general studies at Riverland Community College.
He had many plans for his future and hoped to someday find a special girl and have a family. Tyler had a big, beautiful smile and wonderful sense of humor that lit up any room. He had a kind and caring heart, great intuition and understanding of the feelings of others, and was always looking out for his friends. Tyler was a fun-loving and social guy who thrived on connecting with others. He was low-key and comfortable just hanging out with people he cared about. He was in his element when in the company of his friends and brothers. He loved playing Magic, watching movies, spending time at the beach, hiking the waterfall at Willow River, seeing his nephews, disk golfing and snowboarding. He took pride in being a good friend and making people happy and comfortable.
Ty's battle with addiction began in his late teens. He received the best treatment and care possible and cherished the relationships he formed while in recovery. His ability to love others and take part in our family as a son, brother, and uncle never faltered during his struggle. He was surrounded by love and support at every step. Tyler's smile and caring heart blessed the lives of all those around him. His presence in those lives will be dearly missed.
Tyler will remain in the hearts of his parents, John (Sherri) Hole of Hudson; brothers, Brian (Rachel) of Robbinsdale, Minn., and Robert (Holly) of Owatonna, Minn.; nephews, David, Rylan, and Terran; grandfather Robert Kreutzian of Luck, Wis.; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, LaDonis Kreutzian; paternal grandparents, Everett and Geri Hole; uncles Kenneth and Gary Hole and Richard Spaulding.

A Celebration of Tyler's Life will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, at Bethel Highlands Lutheran Church, 504 Frontage Rd., Hudson, with Pastor Van Bredeson officiating.
