Tyler Joseph Franklin

Tyler Joseph Franklin, 21, passed away on April 7, 2024 in Chippewa Falls, WI. He was born in Ann Arbor, MI on October 22, 2002 to Lauren Catherine Franklin and Charles Franklin. He was incredibly smart, curious and kind, with a truly gentle heart. Tyler was obsessed with the Lakers or anywhere Lebron James was playing. Tyler's main love was his cat, Snowflake, who he adored. He also loved music, being a foodie, watching and playing football, and was a real sneakerhead. Tyler was incredibly bright and graduated from McKinley Charter School. His smile was contagious. He had a compassionate heart, and he easily endeared people to him.

(Quealy) Pichler.
