Tyler Anthony Hein, age 23, of Stillwater, Minnesota passed away on July 18, 2020 following several years of bravely battling addiction. Tyler was born on December 29, 1996 in St. Paul, Minnesota to Jerome and Michele Hein.
He graduated from Stillwater Area High School in 2015 and pursued his dream of joining the United States Marine Corps. Tyler achieved the honor of United States Marine in October 2015. He went on to become a crash fire rescue specialist and certified EMT. Tyler was a talented musician where he found a great sense of community through several collaborators and friends he thought of as family.
Tyler enjoyed his work at Capras Utilities and valued the independence it gave him. Tyler was an avid outdoorsman, particularly enjoying duck, deer, and bear hunting as well as fishing with his father and his friends. He served on several mission trips to Robin’s Nest Children’s Home in Montego Bay, Jamaica and hoped to continue his work there someday. Tyler’s big plans for this year included becoming a certified yoga instructor, buying his first home, and prioritizing his sobriety.

He is survived by his parents Jerry and Michele Hein; sister Alex (Jeff) Theismann; grandmothers Evelyn Law and Glorian Hein; girlfriend Maddy Boettner and several aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
