He had a musical album collection that was second to none, that is priced to be in the tens of thousands of dollars. Tyrone was an avid photographer and could always be found taking pictures of friends and family. Being the oldest child of his mother, who was a widower, Tye became the family provider. Upon going to the military, he would send a portion of his income home monthly to ensure his family’s needs were met.

They returned to Pittsburgh, where they solidified their love by uniting in marriage on October 2, 1982. Their loving union brought forth 3 children; Tyrone Jr., Candice, and Derrick.

Tyrone was employed and later retired from the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections. He was a devout STEELERS fan, who never missed a game. 

He also loved to cook. He was a self proclaimed “Grill Master” whose ribs and brisket were top tier! He loved family trips to Morraine State Park, where he enjoyed camping and spending time with his family.
