It is with heartfelt sorrow that our family announces the sudden passing of our beloved Tyler Hugh William MacEachern, a loving son, partner, brother, father, uncle, cousin and friend. Tyler passed on Saturday, March 18, 2023, in Sydney.

Born December 14, 1989, Tyler graduated from Riverview High School in 2008 with wide eyes and big dreams for the future.

Upon completing high school, Tyler lived, worked and adventured his way throughout Canada and the world, always returning to his home in Cape Breton, where he would eventually plant roots and start a family.

Tyler’s work ethic and love of people shined at his time with employer, Protocase, but Tyler’s true passion was in family, music, adventure and conversation.

If you know Tyler, you know music was central to his soul. Tyler loved to introduce music he enjoyed to the lives of the people he loved, and later in life, Tyler turned his passion into writing music with the goal and ambition of making and sharing his vision with us all.

Tyler called Sydney home, and his heart was and will always remain in Cape Breton, but he also made the world his playground. Travelling, hiking and immersing himself throughout Canada, the US, Scotland, Spain and Australia, Tyler truly created himself.

Tyler found his true purpose with the arrival of his beautiful daughter, Myrah. We are saddened that Tyler will not be able to continue to share and teach his loves, interests and dreams with her. Tyler sought to encourage Myrah to partake in his passions and always kept her by his side on his adventures.

Tyler will be fondly remembered by all and in his own words, “I love every single one of you I’ve passed” – Tyler MacEachern

Tyler is survived by his daughter, Myrah Grace; loving partner, Nicholle Morrison; parents, George and Velma (Mills); sister, Nicole MacEachern (Darryl Schneider); nieces and nephews, Keaton, Adrienne and Reid; in-laws, Michael Morrison Sr. (Marion) and Michael Morrison Jr.; as well as aunts, uncles, cousins and many close friends he considered family.

Tyler was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Hugh MacEachern (Catherine MacKenzie) and maternal grandparents, Hilda MacArthur and Bert Mills.

Please consider donating to mental health programs or childhood development support for families with young children. CBRHF can assist donors to ensure their funds will make a difference in our community.

A gathering of family and friends will take place from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. with the memorial service to follow at 4 p.m. with Michael Morrison officiating.

Dear George, Velma ,Nicole and family
You are in our thoughts and prayers. We didn’t know Tyler as we had moved by the time he arrived but as I read about him he sounds like he was a nice young man, dad and partner. His love of music came from you George I’m sure. You will find strength in each other and your many friends.
Due to the unpredictable weather this weekend Bob and I will not chance a snowy drive but we will be thinking of you. Love cousin Bev

George, Velma, & Nicole,
I was devastated and heartbroken to hear about Tyler’s passing. I had the great pleasure of teaching Tyler and he was always friendly, respectful, and giving. His huge smile could brighten a room and his generous heart made those around him feel special. I can’t even imagine what you are going through, but please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Take care!

I only met this young man once.. as he passed by my house last summer walking with the stroller with his new daughter. I was struck by his shear joy and pride on wanting to stop and cheerfully introduce the “ newest member of the neighborhood” .. his daughter, Myrah to myself and my friend as we sat on our deck.
As I heard of his passing, although only meeting him once.. my heart is broken for his family. He was obviously a bright light here on this cold, sometimes very hard Earth.. and I know he will shine that light down here from Heaven.
Please accept our condolences.. from your neighbor- ❤️
Please take some comfort in knowing you now have an Angel you know personally by name.

I had the most wonderful luck to stumble across Tyler during taking Business at NSCC in Dartmouth.
He would often drive me home and share his favorite music with me.
Last night I went to share some videos from Coachella in California with him. I saw a couple of his favorite artists from back in the day and … I found his obituary.
I am so sorry to everyone he loved and that loved him. Tyler was a beautiful soul and he enlightened so many lives during his time with us. It was a pleasure to know him and may his soul continue to shine bright above us all xoxox
