Timothy Todd Tyler, age 60, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, September 11, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents Lyle and Mary Tyler; brother, Lyle Tyler; wife, Debra Felps-Tyler. He will be deeply missed by his sister, Christine (Clayton) Brown; step-children Heath Felps, Raven Eye; step-grand, Kaysea Felps; niece, Kelsey Rae; Avenger Motorcycle family; and many extended relatives and friends.

Tim proudly served his country in the United States Marine Corp from 1982-1986 where he was stationed in Japan. He had a love for motorcycles, even purchasing one while in Japan and having it shipped to the States. It was often said that he could ride a motorcycle before he could ride a pedal bike. A large part of his life was his Avenger Motorcycle Brotherhood. He went on many cross country trips from Kentucky to the Upper Peninsula and back again.

Per his wishes, cremation has taken place. A biker send-off service will be held at a later date. In memory of Tim and in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the West Michigan Humane Society. The family welcomes memories and messages in their guest book online at

Tim we shared an office for 10 years and I consider us brothers. We fought like brothers sometimes but respected each other’s work ethic and drive to make everything work. We were a team and you left us to soon😢 I miss you tons! Rest in peace my brother until we meet again!

I worked with Tim for 19 years. He was the best at his job. He took care of me on the rail spur I will miss him more than he will ever know.
Tim and I had a love hate relationship but there was more love. He was always there for me.
Tim always talked about his wife I know she was the love of his life. He loved all his animals. When he would call me I would hear his wife’s birds chirping.
He took care of all the cats roaming the neighborhood gave them food and love.
He loved all his dogs each and everyone of them he had had through the years.
Tim will be missed. I really miss Tim.

I had the honor of working with Tim for many years. I will forever miss our chats. I had the pleasure of meeting him in person back in 2013.
I thought I would share this picture of Tim hard at work, making my life easier. He always found a way to make things happen.
You are greatly missed! Rest in peace friend!
