Jeremy Hughes

Jeremy Tyler Hughes, 33, of Tiffin, died Thursday, Sept. 14, 2023, at The Ohio State University Medical Center from complications of Aplastic anemia, a rare blood disease.
Jeremy Tyler was born in Findlay, to Gary Brent and Cheryl (Runion) Hughes. He grew up and attended school in Carey. While growing up, Jeremy Tyler was a true boy; he enjoyed tormenting his sister, hanging out with neighborhood friends, sandwiching houses and cheering for Michigan. He also loved to spend time at Indian Lake with his grandparents learning to fish and drive the boat. He especially liked it when the college girls waved at him.
Jeremy Tyler was the true definition of a family man and had found his soulmate and fiancé, Michala Challen. He loved to spend time with his three children and worked hard to provide for his family. Jeremy Tyler could often be found clearing land on his property for the horses, tending to his chickens and goats or grilling. Jeremy was currently working at Hord Family Farms as a pig production specialist.
In his free time Jeremy Tyler liked rooting for the Wolverines, the Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Cavaliers, learning about Native American history and fishing at the Upper Sandusky Reservoir. He will be missed for his quick wit, one-liners and constant banter with his mother.
Jeremy Tyler will be missed by his parents, Cheryl Hughes and Gary Hughes; fiancé, Michala Challen; children, Adysen Victoria Hughes, Jaxtyn Asher Hughes and Ryker Colt Hughes; sister, Alycia (Brock) Baney and their son, Decklen; grandparents, Roger (Nancy) Runion, Donna Knowlton-Runion and Peter and Diana Hughes; Michala’s parents, Mike and Staci Challen; and Michala’s brother, Kyle Challen.
A celebration of Jeremy Tyler’s life will be held from 3-7 p.m. at Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home, Carey, on Monday, Sept. 18. All are welcome to come and share stories and memories. Private family burial will take place at a later date.
