Tyler Owen Grotz, age 21 of York, NE died Tuesday, July 3, 2012 as a result of a farm accident at the family farm. Tyler was born Jan. 28, 1991, in Henderson, NE., to Duane and Brenda (Forsberg) Grotz.

When Tyler was born, he was welcomed home by his older brother, Darren. Later he welcomed home two little sisters, Brianna and Tonya. He made his choice to serve the living God in 2000 and was true to that special commitment the rest of his life.

Tyler loved animals, raising a fish and a lamb as a child, chickens and calves in grade school and later fattened cattle in his high school years. Tyler graduated from York (NE.)High School in 2009, joined his dad, mom and brother in the farming operation and loved to work with Brianna and Tonya also. He spent lots of time working in the field with his cousins, Daniel, Rodney and Brent Grotz, and Uncle Delton and Aunt Renee, his Grandpa Al and Grandma Doris. He loved to play on the lake and go hunting and fishing, especially with his friend, Tyler Kleeb.

Even more, Tyler loved farming, putting his heart into it.

In August 2009, he and his cousin Cody Forsberg renovated and moved into a home owned by Curtis and Mary Folkerts, with whom he had a working and friendship relationship, and later Tim Veldkamp joined them. Tyler then lived by himself before Tim Hertz moved in with him two weeks ago. Tyler will be greatly missed.

Survivors are: parents, Duane and Brenda Grotz of York, NE.; brother and sister-in-law, Darren and Cara of York, NE.; and sisters, Brianna and Tonya, both of York, NE.; grandparents, Albert and Doris Grotz of York, NE. and Bernice (Pete) Kracht of Rock Rapids, IA.; aunts and uncles, Lorna (Garland) Snow of Kearney, NE., Carol (Mike) Austin of Draper, UT., Delton (Renee) Grotz of York, NE., Anita Forsberg of Boyden, IA., Leroy (Jenette) Forsberg of Estherville, IA., Mary (Chris) Craven of Rochester, MN., and Loren (Karen) Forsberg of Dunnell, MN. and a host of relatives and friends.
