The GoFundMe page says that loved ones have lost “an amazing father, brother, son and friend.”

“Tyler had such a contagious laugh, with a hilarious sense of humour. He could make anyone laugh and was extremely loyal and protective of the people he loved.”

Wiebe had a passion for music and a talent for framing, but “his biggest joy was his two beautiful little girls,” the pages states.

“He loved being a father and he loved those kids more than anything else in the world.”

Funds raised will help with the cost of funeral services and extra money for Wiebe’s daughters to help support them and “for when they get older.”
