Tyler was born on September 17, 1995 in Lancaster, WI and is the beloved son of Brooke (Skaife) Mohn and Paul Wood. They were surrounded by many adoring family members, impatiently awaiting his arrival.
Tyler was a devoted husband, father, loving son, and brother; adored nephew, admirable cousin, and precious grandson.
Tyler’s smile and sense of humor were contagious and would brighten anyone’s day. His sense of humor was inherited from his Papa John. Tyler was a 2014 graduate of Onalaska High School where he formed lasting friendships with his wrestling teammates. Shortly after high school, Tyler joined the United States Army which he proudly served until his passing. Tyler took great pride in being a part of a military family, wanting to continue the legacy set by his Papa Skaife, Aunt Jackie, Step-Dad Shane, and many extended family. He married Shaiza (Summers-Wallace) on July 30, 2017 and their precious baby girl was born April 3, 2018.
Tyler was an avid Packer and Badger fan and enjoyed his many fantasy football leagues. He also treasured spending time with family and hunting and fishing. Tyler had a passion for Michael Jordan shoes in which he had a large collection. Tyler was a gracious man that found a passion for helping others, especially children during his time in Korea where he spent time with orphaned children. He was loved and admired by his family, friends, command and soldiers. Tyler was a great soldier, always willing to tackle even the most complicated tasks. He would also become a motivating and well admired NCO. All that knew Tyler would comment on how kind and loving a person he was. Tyler’s infectious smile and loving heart will be truly missed, but they will never be forgotten. He also loved practicing his wresting moves on his mom, sister (Chesny) and aunt (Jackie).
Tyler will always be loved mosterestest. We would always start with love you until we finally got to mosterestest, which was the highest we could get out and make sense. Tyler was truly loved and loved his family deeply! The world was truly a better place because of the soul this young man had.
