Tyler Burd Obituary, Death – Tyler Edward “Burd Man” Burd, who was a resident of Otsego, Michigan, passed away on Monday, September 23, 2013. On September 16th, 1996, Tyler was born in Plainwell. The day of his birth is also significant. Because of his interest in building BMX bikes, repairing small engines, going fishing, and deer hunting, he has been thinking about pursuing a job with the Department of Natural Resources.
Tyler was a man who had a large heart and worked really hard each day. He also put in a lot of effort. He assisted many of his neighbors by clearing snow from their walkways and mowing their lawns. Survivors include his parents, Tara (Scott Meisterheim) Belcher, Gary (Heather) Burd both of Otsego; step-father, Trent Szymanowski of Plainwell; siblings, Trey Szymanowski of Plainwell, Daelan and Hailey Burd of Otsego; grandparents, Jim(Nancy) Belcher of Gulliver, Jerry (Cheryl) Burd of Otsego; several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
