Tyler Scott Bein passed away early Monday morning, Aug. 15, 2022 at Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay at the age of 31.
He was born July 25, 1991 and was the beloved son of Connie R. Peter and Michael R. Bein. He was born at St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan and lived most of his life in Plymouth.
Tyler’s faith was very important and a comfort to him. He was baptized at St. Peter’s United Church of Christ in the town of Rhine and was confirmed at First Congregational UCC in Plymouth.
He attended Fairview Elementary and Riverview Middle School and went on to graduate from Plymouth High School in 2010, which was one of his proudest accomplishments.
Tyler was born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus which caused him to endure many challenges and hardships in life. Throughout it all he remained a strong, happy and optimistic person who filled any room he was in with joy, love and a strength that was unmatched.
Tyler loved life to the fullest. He was always one to fill a room with laughter and was known for his endless streams of jokes.
For much of his life, he found joy in and was an avid sports lover of football, hockey and racing. He was on many local racing crews where he shared a great deal of fond memories. He loved watching movies and playing video games. He was a lover of food and always enjoyed when his family cooked his favorite meals for him and was always willing to experience and try new things.
His life was filled with adventures that helped shaped his life such as him going to Super Bowl XXXI, trips to Road America, attending Nascar events, family vacations up North and going to Disney World. Tyler’s life and infectious happiness touched many people throughout his life, and he will be forever missed.
