Tyler Lee Munhollon

Tyler Munhollon, 33, of Owensboro, Kentucky passed away July 19, 2023, at UK Albert B Chandler Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky.  Tyler was born April 9, 1990, in Rockford, IL, the son of Richard and Deanne (Hilliard) Munhollon. After graduating from Byron High School, Tyler completed his undergraduate program in mathematics and physics at Coe College in Cedar Rapids, IA.  He then attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ.  There he received his doctorate in materials science engineering.  After graduation, he was recruited to work at Daramic LLC in Owensboro, KY.  It was there that he met and married Jennifer Mattingly, on October 20, 2018, in Owensboro, Kentucky.  Tyler was a dedicated husband, loving father, and quick friend to many.  He enjoyed spending his time by the grill, on the golf course, or watching HGTV and sports.  Above all, his favorite time was spent with his children.  Every weekend was spent at the farmers market and visiting their favorite coffee shop.  Many evenings were spent at the park swinging and playing.  Tyler was a quiet thinker.  Although a man of few words, he was always taking in the surroundings and being curious about the world around him.  He spent a great deal of time wood-working and creating beautiful spaces in his home.  He was adored by Ike, Clara, and his nieces and nephews, who affectionately called him Uncle Ty-Ty.  Although he was taken far too young and too soon, he fought a valiant battle to return to those whom he loved.  He will be desperately missed.

Tyler was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Jessie Hilliard and Ira Hilliard; his paternal grandparents, Billy and Janie Munhollon; paternal great grandmother, Nora Meek; his father-in-law, Dennis Mattingly. 

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife of almost five years, Jennifer Mattingly Munhollon; children, Ike and Clara; parents, Richard and Deanne Munhollon; sister, Ashley (RJ) McGarry; in-laws, Maria Mattingly, Jaime and Chad Mongold, & Jackie and Jordan Osowicz; nieces and nephews, Landon, Logan, Cooper, Mason, Stella, Owen, Henry, Libby, & Vera; and many other loved ones.

The funeral Mass will be 10:00 am Monday at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. Visitation will be Sunday from 2:00 until 6:00 pm with prayers at 5:30 pm and Monday from 8:30 until 9:30 at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. The burial will be in Resurrection Cemetery.
