For those that haven’t heard already Mount Tahoma senior Tyler Howes passed away on Monday, just hours before Mount Tahoma was scheduled to have its graduation ceremonty at the Tacoma Dome. Read more about the story here

In talking to coaches and administrators at Mount Tahoma it sounds like Tyler was a great kid that will be missed by family members and students at the school.

We here at The News Tribune offer our condolences to the Howes family. Here’s a few words about Tyler from Mount Tahoma wrestling coach Randell Holberg, who coached Tyler in his first year of wrestling.

"Not only was he very coachable, but I enjoyed having him out there," Holberg said. "Once we got into matches he was very serious, and wanted everybody else to take it seriously. But at the same time he knew when to mess around and when it was time to have fun.

"It’s definitely a very sad loss today. He was definitely a kid that had things wide open for him in his life. He would have very well succeeded."
