    To all of the Lemke family I am so saddened to see this that my high school friend that walked me down the graduation Isle is now gone and I just read a couple of post that he had posted on Facebook just a couple of days ago he will be greatly missed. Prayers to the whole family .

  • Robert Nelson Posted March 27, 2019 8:46 am

    I’m so, so sorry for your loss. I was telling Doug how Tyler showed more patience when dealing with my computer incompetence than anyone who had suffered me before. There was a rare gentleness and kindness of spirit that helped calm me at several points during my time there. Just heartbreaking to know he’s gone. My wife and I are praying for you as you work through this awful time.

    Dear Lemke Family I am so saddened to hear of Tyler’s passing. I remember many fun times growing up hanging out with Tyler, the awesome back yard, the pond, the three wheeler and watching James Bond movies together and sleep overs.. Please know God’s peace at this time and he will be missed until we meet again.

  • Mary Waring-Wiley Posted March 27, 2019 9:08 am

    To all of Tyler’s family, I am so sorry for your loss.

    Tyler was a kind and caring soul. I will miss him. I will remember our good times together. Tyler…we had great adventures. I cherish those memories. Some of my greatest stories involve us standing shoulder to shoulder…..being called homeless….threatened with prison by grumpy East German border guards…. You got me french fries while I sat crumpled on a park bench having had to many beers at some Irish Pub in Berlin. I have so many memories. Thank you brother. Thank you for everything. I am going to miss you.

    It’s hard losing anybody, especially when it’s unexpected, or when that person is young.
    Praying for God to wrap you up in His love during this very difficult time. Sending out love and prayers.

  • Kingdon Hawes Posted March 27, 2019 6:25 pm

    I just don’t know what to say. My heart is broken, so I can’t even imagine how all of you are doing. My prayers go out to all of you. You are all like family to me. I just wish Tyler know how much so many people loved him.

    Subvenite Sancti Dei, occurrite Angeli Domini: Suscipientes animam ejus, offerentes eam in conspectu Altissimi.
    Suscipiat te Christus qui vocavit te, et in sinum Abrahae Angeli deducant te.
    Suscipientes animam ejus, offerentes eam in conspectu Altissimi.
    Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine: et lux perpetua luceat ei.

    I am so very sorry to hear of Tyler’s passing. I knew Tyler as a loving father to his 3 daughters. I was one of Vivian’s nurses. I know he was very proud of his girls. Vivian will always be remembered with love and Sarah and Danielle will go on to make their entire family proud. Respectful condolences to all family and friends.

  • Jennifer Phillips Posted March 31, 2019 2:40 am

    My heart hurts tonight for his children! I cut Tyler’s hair and he always had these crazy ideas. The last time he was in I finally did what he wanted against my better judgment, and what do you know he looked smashing. He took no time at all to let me know that I am not always right. Haha,we giggled, and he proved his point..
    Tyler was such a great man! As for his children. He loved them so much. He said he stumbles over words a lot as they are opposite in some ways and the same in others. I use to tease him that he needed cue cards for pointers, then he joked I have a 15 year old son and am as clueless as he is.. ????????????‍♀️ He was right. His stories made me giggle!
    My heart hurts tonight!! Tyler was a wonderful person! I am blessed to have known him!!

  • Jesse Moore Posted April 3, 2019 2:05 pm

    I only briefly knew Tyler through the Best of Omaha, but my thoughts and prayers go out to the Lemke family during this time.

  • Rene Morales Posted August 19, 2019 3:00 pm

    Hello My Name is Rene and I met Tyler when I first started working at the bank. I seen him everyday for 6 months until I asked for his name, so I could better greet him. He said his name was Tyler, and from that point forward he was more than a customer but a friendly face we got know a little more each day. Our branch s sending prayers to the Lemke Family!
