Tyler Bevers, age 33, beloved by many, died unexpectedly Sunday, May 6th, while bringing joy and light to his family at the cabin in Hackensack, Minnesota. Tyler was born on June 8, 1984 in Hudson; the son of Tony and Tracy (Klatt) Bevers. He was raised in Hudson, attending Willow Elementary School prior to graduating from the Hudson High School in the class of 2002. Following this, he furthered his education in marketing at Chippewa Valley Technical College. If you knew Tyler, you marveled at his love for all of God’s people. He had an extraordinary gift of making others feel as though they were deeply valued, if not the most special person in the room. For the past twelve years, he used his God-given talents while working for Supportive Living Solutions in the Twin Cities. Here, he served as a property manager, helping as an integral member of his team to house and support hundreds of those who have been struggling with homelessness or have been living with a severe and persistent mental illness. On September 26, 2009, Tyler married the love of his life, Alessandra “Ali” Arrigoni near Bass Lake. This union was further blessed with two beautiful sons, Elijah (age 3) and Amos (9 months).
Tyler’s love of life was simple, Faith, Family, and Friends. Nothing gave him a bigger smile than spending time with Ali and the boys. This past weekend, he loaded up a trailer with toy trucks for his sons and nephews, used his ever-impressive strength to work on the cabin “Eagle Point” of Webb Lake in Minnesota, and was sitting aside Ali when his heart stopped unexpectedly. Tyler loved his wife dearly, having just told her moments before he passed that he “had the perfect weekend.” He enjoyed fishing trips to Canada, hunting elk out West, the fellowship of a canoe ride on the lake, and all-things nature. Tyler lived by the Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” He not only was always there to share a helping hand to anyone in need, whether he knew you or not, he went far out of his way to make things better for you. The love of God showed through his life by his actions, not just his word. He was a rock to many, but was Superman to his family.
Tyler will forever remain in the hearts of his wife and best friend Ali; sons Elijah and Amos; parents Tony and Tracy of Hudson; sister Tierney Bevers (Michael Dubay); brother TJ Bevers; parents-in-law William and Elisabeth Arrigoni of New Richmond; sister-in-law Angelica (Frederick) Young and their children Grayden, Graham, and Brekken; grandparents Wendall (Jan) Klatt; aunts and uncles Roger (Patsy) Bevers, Beth (Dewey) Swanson, Keith (Becky) Bevers, Sandra (Doug) Klatt, Colleen (Andy) Enloe, Tim (Lynn) Klatt, Tom (Toni) Klatt, Troy (Shelly) Klatt, Trish (Bill) Nelson, Tayne (Jason) Hall, Patrick (Kay) Payne, Timothy Payne; grandparents-in-law Ann (Gene) Johnson, Barbara Payne, as well as a host of cousins and countless friends. He is preceded in death by his siblings Tory & Tara, grandparents Duane and Carol Bevers; and grandfather-in-law Ray Payne.
Funeral service for Tyler will be 2PM Friday May 11 at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Hudson. Visitation will be on Thursday from 4pm to 8pm at the O'Connell Family Funeral Home in Hudson as well as one hour prior to service at St. Patrick's. Memorials are preferred in lieu of flowers to help establish a memorial scholarship for his two boys who meant the world to him.
