In loving memory of Tyler Kronberg, who passed away on Tuesday, November 7, at the age of 37, due to an unexpected complication following surgery.
Born on April 13, 1986, in Lansing, Michigan, Tyler was a social soul, always eager to initiate conversations with both familiar faces and strangers alike. His joyous spirit thrived when connecting with family and friends, either through heartfelt phone calls or by spending quality time together. Tyler found immense happiness in his passions for hunting, fishing, and cheering for Michigan State and Detroit sports.
In 2020, Tyler married the love of his life, Brandy, and together they welcomed their precious daughter, Kailynn, in 2017. Recently, Tyler was pleasantly surprised to learn that he had another daughter, Summer, who is 16 years old. This revelation brought him another child to share his love with.
Tyler was an amazing, hands-on father, deeply committed to nurturing and fostering a loving environment for Kailynn. He reveled in every moment spent with Kailynn, actively engaging in her life, from bedtime stories to shared hobbies, there wasn’t a moment when he didn’t want her by his side. His dedication to fatherhood was evident in the laughter that he shared with Kailynn. Tyler's legacy as an extraordinary father will forever be etched in the hearts of those he leaves behind.
Tyler is survived by his beloved wife Brandy and cherished daughters, Kailynn Kronberg and Summer McNamara. He is also remembered by his father, Steven Kronberg (Julie), mother, Kimberly Dills (Ned), and honorary parents, Mark and Lisa Apple. Additionally, he leaves behind his siblings: Nicholas Kronberg (Stephanie), Amber Kellogg (Andrew), Jesse Payne (Jessica), and Dustin Grow (Tori). Tyler's memory is further carried on by his nieces and nephews: Collin, Aryana, Maycie, Drake, Vairity, Justice, Scarlett, and Levi.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents, William and Sally Epps, William and Ruby Kronberg, and his mother-in-law, Debbie Apple.
In this time of sorrow, may the memories of Tyler's vibrant personality, his unwavering commitment to fatherhood, and the love he shared with anyone in his presence provide solace to all those who mourn his loss. The family will be holding a ‘Celebration of life’ for Tyler at Quail Ridge Park, 5501 Quail Ridge Pkwy, Wentzville at noon on Saturday November 11. You are encouraged to attend and share your Tyler stories. In the Tyler Kronberg, spirit, THE MORE THE MERRIER! A second memorial service will be held in Michigan, in the weeks to come.
