Tyler Benjamin Williams, 34, of Milwaukee, passed away on May 4, 2022, unexpectedly at Froedtert Hospital after a heart attack.
Tyler was born on May 29, 1987, to Mark & Karen (Carter) Williams in Sheboygan. He graduated from Sheboygan Falls High School, and studied under many influential musicians.
Tyler was a remarkably accomplished vocalist and opera singer, singing professionally with the Chicago Summer Opera, Florentine Opera, Lyric Opera Weimar, and Eurasia Festival (New York City). He has held section leader and soloist roles at Basilica of St. Josephat, North Shore Congressional Church and Fox Point Lutheran Church. Tyler was scheduled to perform for Crescendo Performing Arts (Iowa City) and premiere in a mass in St. Louis titled Machaut Missa de Nostre Dame, in 2022. He did all of this while working at Cafe Zupas as a catering manager in Menomonee Falls.
Above all, Tyler cherished his role as father to his beloved daughter, Adrienne. He was caring, kind, charismatic, and adventurous. In that same spirit of kindness, Tyler's last earthly act of generosity was given through the donation of his tissues and organs.
Tyler is survived by his daughter, Adrienne; parents, Mark & Karen Williams; brothers, Ryan Williams, and Craig (Autumn) Williams; sister, Emily Williams; grandparents, Lawrence (Rosie) Carter and Donald Williams; Aunts and Uncles, Kate (Mike) Laszinski, Colleen (Scott) Seemann, Mike (Liz) Carter, Mike Williams, Al Williams, Steve Williams, Jerry (Kim) Williams, Paul (Dawn) Williams, Bob (Krisan) Williams, and Lisa Baumgartner. He is further survived by many cousins, other relatives, and many friends.
Tyler is preceded in death by his grandparents, Carol and Dave Saeger, and Virginia Williams.
A time of gathering will take place at the Wenig Funeral Home of Sheboygan Falls on May 13, 2022, from 2:00 pm until 6:00 pm. An informal time of remembrance and sharing will take place at 4:00 pm.
