In late 2020, 13-year-old Tyler Hultink of Lacombe was diagnosed with a serious brain tumour. His story brought the community together in support of the Hultink family through donations from the family’s GoFundMe and countless selfless gestures in support of them. 

On April 6, 2022 after nearly two years of battling cancer, 15-year-old Tyler passed away. The Hultink family is asking the community to come together once more in celebration of his life. Anyone with vintage cars, fast cars, big trucks, or anything worth showing off are being asked to take part in his celebration of life on Thursday, April 14. 

Vehicles are asked to meet at Wilson’s Funeral Chapel at 3:00PM. They will be heading to the cemetery from there.
