Tyler Anthony Whalen

may 27, 1986 – may 31, 2023

Tyler Anthony Whalen

Tyler Whalen, age 37, passed away on May 31, 2023.

Tyler was born in Cincinnati, Ohio to Mark and Theresa Whalen.

Tyler is survived by his mother, Theresa Whalen, his significant other, Karrie Norgren, his daughter, Lyric Whalen, his sister, Brooke (Duston) Anderson, and his nieces, Lillie, and Hazel Anderson.

He was preceded in death by his father, Mark Whalen, and his grandparents.

Tyler was generous, kind, loving, hardworking and hilarious. He was a caretaker and a big teddy bear. He had the biggest heart and would give the shirt off his back to anyone who needed it. In the moments he was not doing for others, he was playing with his daughter, Lyric. She was his pride and joy. He loved teaching her how to hit a baseball or taking her to fish. He was a proud father, provider of his family, a great son, a loving brother, and friend. Tyler will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

“Tyler, We spent so many days and nights together hanging out, swimming, skating, kings island, and more. I never thought a day would come where you wouldn’t be apart of this Earth. My heart breaks so much. Especially for your family and your beautiful daughter. You were there for me whenever I needed you, no questions asked. You were my very best friend. I feel sorry for anyone who didn’t have the privilege to know you. Thank you for all of the wonderful memories that we made together. Until we meet again. I love you.”

“This one hurts. I could go on and on about memories but the one constant was that you ALWAYS had my back. You were the brother I never had and my best friend. People say guys and girls can’t really be just friends. You are proof that’s true, When I was going through it you would crash on my couch just to make sure I was ok. Iv called you pissed off and you would tell me come over and you would pop in a movie and make me laugh until I forgot why I was mad. I hate that we went down different paths, maybe thing would be different…but you will always be my bff especially when it’s cloudy with a chance of meatballs…because lasagna. Love you buddy”

“Tyler was a wonderful dad and a great help to Karrie. He was a big old teddy bear and strong as an ox. He always wanted to help anyone at anytime. I’m so heartbroken. He seemed to be doing so well and we were all so hopeful that he was turning around for good. He leaves a huge hole that no one can fill. We will miss him so much. Lyric adored him so much. That is the hardest part. RIP Tyler. God take care of Karrie, Lyric, Teresa, and Brooke.”
