Tyler Scott Hadley, age 20, passed into eternal life on Friday, March 7, 2014, as a result of a car accident. Tyler graduated from Sleepy Eye Public High School in 2012. He was currently living and working in Mankato.

Tyler was full of love, compassion and kindness. His love for his family and friends was evident, and it was unmistakable that Tyler always put his family first. He was selfless, humble and a friend to all. Everyone was on a level playing field with Tyler and he accepted people for who they were, never putting himself first. His big white smile and beautiful blue eyes lit up a room and made your heart melt.

Tyler always had a strong faith, but after his sister Kaylie passed, he began to build an intimate relationship with God. He shared his faith with his friends and told them all the reasons why he loved God and why they should love Him, too. Tyler was so proud of the beautiful tattoo of the Serenity Prayer that he had placed over his heart and he chose to live his life by these words.

Tyler, T-Hads, Ty, T, and Hadley (as his friends would call him), was an avid athlete. He loved playing and watching football, basketball, and golf, but his greatest of these was basketball. Tyler was a huge Miami Heat and LeBron James fan. He enjoyed watching the playoff games with his friends and taunting anyone who would cheer for the Lakers!

Spread your wings and fly, Ty. Heaven truly received another beautiful Angel.
