Tyler Bevers, age 33, beloved by many, died unexpectedly Sunday, May 6th, while bringing joy and light to his family at the cabin in Hackensack, Minnesota. Tyler was born on June 8, 1984 in Hudson; the son of Tony and Tracy (Klatt) Bevers. He was raised in Hudson, attending Willow Elementary School prior to graduating from the Hudson High School in the class of 2002. Following this, he furthered his education in marketing at Chippewa Valley Technical College. If you knew Tyler, you marveled at his love for all of God’s people. He had an extraordinary gift of making others feel as though they were deeply valued, if not the most special person in the room.  For the past twelve years, he used his God-given talents while working for Supportive Living Solutions in the Twin Cities. Here, he served as a property manager, helping as an integral member of his team to house and support hundreds of those who have been struggling with homelessness or have been living with a severe and persistent mental illness. On September 26, 2009, Tyler married the love of his life, Alessandra “Ali” Arrigoni near Bass Lake. This union was further blessed with two beautiful sons, Elijah (age 3) and Amos (9 months).

Tyler’s love of life was simple, Faith, Family, and Friends. Nothing gave him a bigger smile than spending time with Ali and the boys. This past weekend, he loaded up a trailer with toy trucks for his sons and nephews, used his ever-impressive strength to work on the cabin “Eagle Point” of Webb Lake in Minnesota, and was sitting aside Ali when his heart stopped unexpectedly. Tyler loved his wife dearly, having just told her moments before he passed that he “had the perfect weekend.” He enjoyed fishing trips to Canada, hunting elk out West, the fellowship of a canoe ride on the lake, and all-things nature. Tyler lived by the Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” He not only was always there to share a helping hand to anyone in need, whether he knew you or not, he went far out of his way to make things better for you. The love of God showed through his life by his actions, not just his word. He was a rock to many, but was Superman to his family.

Tyler will forever remain in the hearts of his wife and best friend Ali; sons Elijah and Amos; parents Tony and Tracy of Hudson; sister Tierney Bevers (Michael Dubay); brother TJ Bevers; parents-in-law William and Elisabeth Arrigoni of New Richmond; sister-in-law Angelica (Frederick) Young and their children Grayden, Graham, and Brekken; grandparents Wendall (Jan) Klatt; aunts and uncles Roger (Patsy) Bevers, Beth (Dewey) Swanson, Keith (Becky) Bevers, Sandra (Doug) Klatt, Colleen (Andy) Enloe, Tim (Lynn) Klatt, Tom (Toni) Klatt, Troy (Shelly) Klatt, Trish (Bill) Nelson, Tayne (Jason) Hall, Patrick (Kay) Payne, Timothy Payne; grandparents-in-law Ann (Gene) Johnson, Barbara Payne, as well as a host of cousins and countless friends. He is preceded in death by his siblings Tory & Tara, grandparents Duane and Carol Bevers; and grandfather-in-law Ray Payne.

Funeral service for Tyler will be 2PM Friday May 11 at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Hudson. Visitation will be on Thursday from 4pm to 8pm at the O’Connell Family Funeral Home in Hudson as well as one hour prior to service at St. Patrick’s. Memorials are preferred in lieu of flowers to help establish a memorial scholarship for his two boys who meant the world to him.

    • Ali –

      My heart breaks for you and your family over the news of your incredible loss. There are absolutely no words that can be said to truly bring comfort and for that, I am sorry. My heart and thoughts are with you during this time. May you be surrounded by the love of family and friends as you move throughout these next days. May love and comfort be with you.


    • Can’t even express how sad this makes us. I’m not sure if I ever met him, Gene probably had. Just reading about him, I can see how much he was loved and gave love. All I can think is God had a greater need of his quulaloties and qualifications then those of his family on earth…as unfair as that is. I’m glad his wife and kids have the strength of loving families to help them and LOTS of great male role models to help fill his absence in the kids lives.

    • I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know him and his family, but he sounds like a wonderful, caring, giving person.

      Hold on to the good and beautiful memories and remember… Love Never Ends!

    • Ali,
      There are no words I can say to change the reality of your pain but may you be surrounded by the love of God and your family.
      I pray that you feel God’s presence in this dark hour.

    • I am so very very sorry for your loss. It sounds like Tyler was a wonderful son, husband, and father. Sending many prayers to you all.

    • I wish there was something I could say to make the loss of Tyler’s life a little less painful. I can not begin to imagine your loss. What I have seen shows howdeeply thought of he was. That is an incredible gift to you, as his parents Tracy and Tony. You did good raising him, and he explored those teachings to encompass them into his life and make this wonderful person, man, husband, and father. God bless all of you during this time. I will be praying for all of you.

    • Tyler was always such a great guy in high school!!! I am extremely sad and heartbroken for such a young good soul to leave this earth too early. My heart goes out to all of his family and his children! Rest in peace Tyler!

    • There are no words to take away the pain from all who are suffering the loss of this amazing young man!~ My deepest sympathy to Ali, Liji, Amos and his parents Tracy and Tony. My heart is breaking for all of you – Prayers, love and hugs to you all!

    • Ali, Elijah, and Amos,
      I wish there were better words to express how incredibly sorry I am for your loss. It’s clear that the whole Hudson community knew how great of a man Tyler was, and he will be missed by many.
      I look back at that short, but recent time you guys lived by my mom’s, and it always made me smile when I drove by and saw Tyler’s truck out front, and was even better when I was walking the block with one of my kids, and got a chance to catch up with Tyler, and let our kids play for a while. He truly beamed with love for those boys! You could see it in the twinkle of his eyes, and hear the joy in his voice.
      Please don’t hesitate to ask for whatever you need from me or anyone, any who knew Tyler, or even heard of him would be more than happy to make this time easier. I wish we could wake you up from this nightmare, as death truly sucks….which is an incrediable understatement!
