Tyler “Weaz” Frea, 25, of Sturgeon Bay, passed away, Friday afternoon, June 27, 2014, while at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee.
He was born September 10, 1988, in Sturgeon Bay, the son of Scott and Lorie (Behringer) Frea. Weaz graduated from Sturgeon Bay High School in 2007 and continued his education at NWTC in Green Bay for Prototype and Design. He was currently employed with Palmer Johnson Yachts in Sturgeon Bay as a CAD Designer.
Tyler loved all things racing, as both a spectator and participant. When he was younger, he and his entire family raced go-karts for many years. He enjoyed dirt biking and four wheeling. His latest endeavor was RC car racing. Weaz also got out on the golf course occasionally, and was known for his “short game”. He always enjoyed hanging out with family and friends, and was more than willing to take your money in a good game of poker.
Those left to mourn his passing include his parents, Scott and Lorie Frea; two brothers, Ryan and Dylan, all of Sturgeon Bay; aunts, uncles, (and cousins), Ken (Cindy) Frea (and Brandon, Travis, Kristin), Dennis “Worm” Frea, Larry (Linda) Frea (and Chelsea, Caitlin, Ali, Shiloh), Dan Frea (and Brian, Jason), Tim (Peggy) Midgette (and Willa, Owen), John Behringer (Miranda); his lifelong friends, Aaron Butterbrodt, Joe and Jer Nielson, Tony Hill; and many other dear relatives; friends; and co-workers.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Herbert and Kay Frea, William and June Behringer; uncle, Lenny Frea.
Friends may call from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., Thursday, July 3, 2014, at Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay with a service of remembrance to follow at 7:00 p.m. Tyler will be laid to rest at St. Joseph Cemetery columbarium.
Although a reserved man of few words, Tyler had a strong side that allowed him to battle a debilitating lung condition for almost six months. He was a fighter. We will always remember the smirk that would come over his face when he knew he had pulled something over on you. Tyler will be loved and remembered forever.
