Corky Eugene Tyan

Jan. 31, 1963 - Dec. 31, 2020

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. — Corky Eugene Tyan formerly of North Platte, passed away Dec. 31, 2020 near Indianola, Neb.

Corky was born Jan. 31, 1963, in North, Neb., to Edward (Cork) and Cleo (Slater) Tyan. He was the oldest of five children born to this union.

Corky married Tami (Robinson) on Aug. 1, 1998, and to this union six children were born. He spent most of his life enjoying his true passion, working in ranching and agriculture. He was well known for his handiness on the back of any horse he crawled on and his love for a good horse, and a few good dogs to call his own. In his younger years he won many belt buckles riding bulls and was an avid wild horse race participant with his brothers, proudly winning Cheyenne Frontier Days wild horse in the 1990s and bringing home the ruby belt buckle.

Anyone that knew Corky well witnessed his free spirit and often childlike view of the world around him. For those that loved him they hope the sound of his signature laugh never fades away and that Corky has already been reunited with his best partner, Bear.

Corky is survived by his children, Tierney Tyan of Omaha, Neb., Haley Tyan of Ashland, Neb., Brody Tyan of Hyannis, Neb., and Trey Tyan, Teagan Tyan, and Raynee Tyan of Naples Fla.

Also surviving are two granddaughters, Emersen Loupin and Leightyn Loupin of Ashland, Neb.; surviving siblings, Dusty Tyan of Frankewing Tenn., Tim and (Tracy) Tyan of Wallace, Neb., Tina Tyan of Sutherland, Neb., Camie and (Matt) Cox of Wauneta, Neb.; and multiple nieces and nephews.

Corky was preceded in death by father, Cork Tyan and mother, Cleo Tyan; and beloved nephew, Joshua Tyan.

There will be no services per Corky’s request. Upon cremation the children plan to take him to a few special places he loved and requested to make his final resting spot.

Memorial contributions are suggested in Corky’s name for future designation and can be directed to Carpenter Breland Funeral Home, c/o the Corky Tyan Family, P.O. Box 605, McCook, NE 69001.
