Tyler Koenig was born on June 21, 1990, in Beatrice, Nebraska. He attended Tri-county elementary and junior high at Dewitt, NE. The family then moved to Culbertson, Montana, where he graduated with the class of 2008. During High School, he worked at MeToo Pizza. Tyler and family moved to Lincoln where he attended Southeast Community College and then Nebraska Wesleyan University, where he received a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication in May of 2014. While attending college, Tyler worked at Ruby Tuesday. Following graduation, he worked for Nelnet in the Home Advisors Department for several years. He then began his career with Verizon as a customer sales representative until he became too ill to work.

Tyler was an adventurous soul and would spark conversation with anyone and would soon have them laughing from his quick wit and humor. He loved to travel and took great interest in art and history. Tyler also enjoyed being outdoors, whether he was out fishing or camping. Tyler was a bit impulsive but that’s what made him Tyler.

He was preceded in death by his Father, Steve Koenig; Grandmothers Phyllis Hendrickson, Mary Lou Hendrickson, and Pearl Koenig; his Grandfather Wayne Koenig as well as a special Kitty, “Stripe”.

Left to cherish Tyler’s memory are his Spouse, Jonathan Henning; Daughter Ayla Koenig of Omaha; his Mother Brenda Koenig of Lincoln; Sister Angela (Alex Derun) Koenig of Lincoln; Brother Travis (Jena) Koenig of Tucson, AZ; Nieces and Nephews, Wyatt, Piper, Paisley, Chloe, Micheal, Simon, and Abram, also of Tucson, AZ. Tyler is also survived by his Kitties, Precious and Monkey, as well as he and Ayla’s Bunny, Nibbles.

Special Thanks go out to Bryan West Hospital and Traditions Healthcare & Hospice for their dedicated service and love shown to our family through this time.
