Left to cherish his memory are his son, Cody Tyler of Jefferson and his daughter, Whitney Tyler Patton and husband, Rorie Patton along with his three grandchildren, Covie, Blaine and Everly, whom he loved with all his heart. He also leaves behind a sister, Jerry Mullins (Glenn), and brothers Ronnie Paul Tyler (Nicki) and Kraig Tyler (Johnette) along with numerous nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.
Chris was recognized and loved by so many in our community. Being social was nothing Chris lacked of, for sure. He was involved with Little League Baseball and Softball coaching his kids as well as many others for at least 10 years, but probably more! He also enjoyed Youth Football League, where he coached Cody and his friends until they began playing in junior high school. Delta Waterfowl and Ducks Unlimited were organizations he held close to his heart too. He loved the reason of the organization but he also loved the friendships that were made throughout the years. The Jefferson Athletic Booster Club was lucky enough to have him as President for several years. He even continued to serve on the board even after his own kids graduated from high school. He was the first to get on board to help anyone with a fundraiser to help with medical expenses. Helping people was what Chris enjoyed in his everyday life. It didn’t matter if they were young or old; if you were a new friend or an old-time friend, he was the one you counted on to help to the end. Chris was a very strong person, even up until his final days. He was very optimistic that he would be going home soon to play with his grandkids and be with Whitney and Cody! His presence will be greatly missed by so many.
