Tyler Brinneman

December 11, 1981 ~ March 20, 2020 (age 38)


Tyler (Ty) Hesse Brinneman of Fort Wayne, IN breathed his last early Friday morning on March 20th, 2020. He died peacefully at home next to his beloved wife in a room full of love and light. Ty was born on December 11, 1981 to Linda and Alan Brinneman of Warren, IN. (was he born in Warren?) In 2013 he married Aubrey (Losen) Brinneman and together they made a home with four children in the 07. 

Ty attended Huntington College for youth ministry and was employed at Starbucks as a barista. For 13 years he played bass guitar with Metavari, a well-known local electronic band. Ty loved nothing more than raising his children and spending every day with them. He fell in love with each of his sons at birth (Raleigh Brinneman, Rainer Brinneman, and Royal Brinneman) and with his daughter (Eleanor Snyder) at first sight when he met her. Ty attended Level 13 Church with his family and was previously baptized in the ocean on a mission trip to Honduras. He will always be affectionately remembered for his sudden, loud laugh and love of stale Peeps.  

In addition to his wife and children, Ty is survived by his father, Alan Brinneman, his sister, Stacia Brinneman (partner - William Millhouse), his grandmother, Mary Lee Brinneman, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He is preceded in death by his mother, Linda (Hesse) Brinneman.
