Tyler Ross Callahan

November 17, 1991 — July 12, 2022

South Philadelphia

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved son, Tyler Ross Callahan, who passed away on July 12, 2022 at his residence in South Philadelphia. 


Born November 17, 1991, Tyler is survived by his parents, Daniel and Kimberly Callahan; brothers, Justin Callahan and Ryan Kuintzle; his grandmothers, Margaret Callahan and Lillian Willis; two nephews; nine cousins; his uncles, Jefferey Callahan and Billy Willis; and his aunts, Lisa Deignan and Cindi Ruberti.  

Tyler attended West Chester East High School and was a graduate of West Chester University.  He expressed himself eloquently through writing and had dreams of becoming an attorney.  Uniquely Tyler, he kept detailed journals about his thoughts and plans.  Recently he completed drafts for two novels he had been contemplating for many years.  


Tyler had many loves, one of which was music, especially the Grateful Dead.  We have fond memories of concerts in the pouring rain with Tyler singing and dancing, oblivious to the dreadful weather, just having the time of his life.


He also loved to cook, having learned from his grandmother, a graduate of Le Cordon Blue. Some of Tyler’s most joyful times were caring for and feeding his friends and family.  


Growing up, he loved baseball and played for Great Valley Little League, played travel baseball and also at Cooperstown when he was twelve years old. 


As a family, we loved to travel and some of our favorite trips included sailing in Tahiti, skiing in Colorado and mountaineering experiences in California, Oregon and Montana with his peers at Adventure Treks.


Tyler had a big heart and loved to laugh and carry on with outlandish antics.  A joy to be around, he truly cared for his friends and was sincerely concerned for their wellbeing.  He was always filled with stories about the interaction of his friends, co-workers or just people he observed on the street.  He loved the city and was so excited to be living in South Philadelphia.   

We are going to miss our beloved son deeply.  He tragically left us way too early in life.  Please keep Tyler in your thoughts and prayers.

There will be a private celebration of life for family and close friends.
