We Remember

LEINWEBER, Tyler Cameron

October 3, 1975 — January 14, 2016

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Tyler Cameron Leinweber on January 14, 2016. Born on October 3, 1975 in Cranbrook BC, Tyler then moved to Kelowna at age three.  As a young man, Tyler spent a great deal of time travelling overseas and during an extended stay in Thailand he became a father for the first time, when his beloved son Mac was born.  Six years later Tyler became a proud dad again, of daughter Talay.  He and his young family settled in Kelowna.  His love for his children was foremost in Tyler’s heart throughout his too-brief life.


Tyler leaves behind a loving family including his two children Mac and Talay, and their mother Supa; his Mom and Dad, Helen and Stu Jennens; father Loni Leinweber and his wife, Vern; his sister Brie and her partner Errol and their daughter Ella; brother Nicolas; aunt Lori and husband Dallas and their children; his uncles George and Thomas and their families; and his maternal grandparents, Don and Mabel MacDonald. Tyler was predeceased by his brothers Anton and Rian.


Please join us to celebrate Tyler’s life on Saturday, January 30 at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna with an on-site reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Tyler’s name to the Kelowna Gospel Mission.

    Sending my deepest condolences on your tragic loss of Tyler. I will never forget my travel to Thailand, shopping at a local store in Krabi and having this young man come up to me and say…. aren’t we related? We hadn’t seen each other since we were kids so I didn’t recognize him at first but then I figured it out… my long lost cousin!! Rian, Tyler and I spent many summers together as kids, reconnecting with them both meant the world to me.
    Forever in my heart.

His genuine heart, smile and desire to connect with those he loved was evident. He will be missed, but his memory always remembered. Thinking of you.

  • Dale and Sylvia Wold says:

    We enjoyed getting to know Tyler briefly when he was in Cochrane. So intelligent, such a good sense of humour and fun, our grandchildren enjoyed his friendship. To have lost someone so personable with so much to offer the world, at such a young age, is tragic. Our deepest sympathy to you.
