Help with Tyler Stephan's Funeral

Tyler Stephan loved cars, Purdue, and encouraging his friends. In just a short amount of time on campus, he made an unforgettable impression on classmates, coworkers, and those who crossed his path. On October 1st, 2018, 18 year-old Tyler passed away as a result of a hereditary heart condition that he and the Stephan family were unaware existed.

Tyler and his family are from Huntington, where his father works in the automotive industry and his mother serves as a customer service representative.

A 10 4-H member, and a newly honored Eagle Scout, Tyler’s character and personality uplifted so many. Both the Huntington and Purdue communities are mourning the loss of their friend.

As nobody plans to lose a son or brother so young, the family would appreciate any donations you can make to help cover funeral expenses. Whether you were able to get to know Tyler or not, a contribution of any kind will help his family arrange a funeral worthy of his spirit.
