In Loving Memory of Roy Tyler, Jr.
July 12, 1942 - March 30, 2018
Roy Tyler Jr., 75 stepped into eternity on Friday, March 30th, 2018 in Los Angeles, CA due to complications from Colon Cancer.
Born July 12, 1942, in Fort Worth, Texas he was the only child born to the late Roy Tyler Sr. and Bessie Kate Thompson.
Roy was a very hardworking man. He was employed thirty plus years by the United States Postal Office where he held the title of the "post office class clown." He always made sure all his co-workers who he considered family were in the best moods. He was also employed by Dodger Stadium 30 plus years in Los Angeles, CA where he was a ticket vendor. This was a job he truly loved and never considered work. He also had other side jobs such as The Galen Center and numerous security jobs for different events. On his off time, he was an avid bowler. His favorite saying when he was bowling a bad game was "I couldn't bust a grape." He also enjoyed playing fast pitch softball with his friends. Roy was a fun and young spirit. He was always joking around and you could never tell when he was having a bad day. He never hesitated to help anyone in need. If you ever needed him he was always a phone call away. Last but not least if you knew Roy Tyler Jr. you knew the man could dress. He took pride in his appearance. When he walked into a room everyone noticed and it wasn't just because he was tall.
To say Roy will be missed is an understatement. He was a great Son, loving Husband, and devoted Father, Grandfather, and Great-Grandfather.
Roy Tyler Jr. was preceded in death by his father Roy Tyler Sr., his mother Bessie Kate Thompson, wife Sandra Tyler, and his son, Randy Tyler.
He leaves behind to celebrate his life his two adult children, Rhonda Tyler and Antonio (wife Joann Foster) Tyler, his companion Olivett Scott, eight grandchildren: Gene Windom, Gina (husband Terrell) Griffin, Brittney Tyler, Ginger Windom, Tiffany Tyler, Reva Gaston, Randi (Corey) Ward, and Austin Windom; eleven great-grandchildren: Jeremiah Anderson, Tyree Griffin, Nakai Thomas, Kalea Thomas, Camila Mcknight, Autumn Jenkins, Brielle Degrate, Mackenzie Smith, Riley Smith, Corey Ward Jr., and Karsyn Ward. He also leaves a host of family and friends that he loved dearly.
