David was born September 20, 1956 in Houston, Texas, to John Charles and Margaret Ann (Yantis) Tyner. David was a loving and devoted husband, caring father, adoring Toady (Grandfather) and was loved by everyone he knew. David is preceded in death by his father, John Charles Tyner, and his mother-in-law, Mavis Kuehn.

David is survived by his wife, Rebecca (Becky) Tyner; daughter and son-in-law, Jillian and Wade Moore; daughter and son-in-law, Brittni and Jacob Bures; treasured grandchildren, Zoe, Levi, Jaxon, Zeke and Zane Moore; Adelaide, Charles, Tilly and Cotton Bures; mother, Margaret Ann Tyner; brother and sister-in-law, John Michael and Glenda Tyner; sister, Ann Tyner; father-in-law, Arthur P. Kuehn, Jr.; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Michael Kuehn and Nancy Davis; nieces and nephews, Connie and Bruce Keller; Michael, Jr. and Jodi Kuehn; Maegan and Brent Pitts; Michael Tyner; Hillary and Brandon Weiss; Jared and Sydney Roth; and many cherished family members and friends.

David was a 1975 graduate of Galena Park High School where he enjoyed playing football. David was married to Becky for 40 years and during that time they were blessed with two daughters. He was a wonderful father who spent time teaching his girls to hunt, fish and enjoy life. David and Becky were also blessed with nine grandchildren. He was a very proud Toady and spending time with his grandchildren was a tremendous joy in his life.

The main love of David’s life was Becky and his family. David also had another love that many didn’t know of, Industrial Firefighting and David was very good at it. David served on fire brigades and leadership roles while employed at Arco Chemical and British Petroleum. But David found his calling as an Industrial Fire Instructor at the Fire School at Texas A&M University.

He was a great instructor that was constantly requested by many of the Industrial Fire Brigades that received training there. David made an impact for these Brigade members, that will be missed for years to come. He truly made a difference.

In lieu of flowers, David wished for donations to be made to “TEEX/ESTI Tuition Assistance Account” in the name of David Tyner.

I have known David for many years. He went to Galena Park while Gary Fruge , I and others went to Furr. I haven’t seen David in years but he has always been a friend. We all started at ARCO about the same time, David and I went to BP eventually and David was one of the first guys I talked to when I moved back to Houston in 2010. You always remember your friends growing up even if you loose touch David you have always been a friend and you will always be in my heart. RIP my friend And god bless Becky and your family.

David and I became friends in elementary school. In high school while in Jacketeers David was the football player I was assigned to support by wrapping lockers and baking for him. David was always so appreciative. At the end of the season David sent me a dozen roses(his Mom May have had something to do with that 😀). We will miss him greatly. God’s peace and comfort to his family.

You could have knocked me over with a feather when I heard of Big Dave’s passing. I have a lot of great memories while working and fishing with David while he was at ARCO/Lyondell. With great simpthy from Sheree and I. You will always be missed. We know you are in the arms of our Lord, looking down on us.

continued . . . . well the good times continued after you and Becky moved to College Station. There were so many memories made on Remington! From birthday parties to over the hill parties, and all kind of parties in between; there was always good times to be had! I almost killed myself trying to ride Becky’s unicycle on one occasion. Spending time with you Becky, Jillian, Wade, Brittni, Jacob and all of the grandchildren was an absolute blast! I recall on one occasion you and I were “sharing” the kiddie pool with the grandchildren and you got in a bit of a tight spot with Becky. I had nothing to do with it of course; well perhaps I might have coaxed you a bit! I still have a picture on my phone of you sitting in your timeout chair across the yard. Just a couple of years ago I had Tilly all buckled in the back seat of my truck and ready for a trip back to Oklahoma. Wow, I love y’all! Visiting at your New Braunfels house last summer was a treat. What a beautiful place you had. Visiting with you, Becky, John Michael, and Glenda was awesome and brought back many memories. The Bures kids were almost more than I could handle in the swimming pool. Tailgaiting at Texas A&M football games with you was an absolute hoot! You always had to be near the fire. I guess it’s a fireman kind of thing? I thought you were going to die of heat exhaustion in the parking lot at NRG Stadium for the AZ St game. Your young neighbor from New Braunfels helped to keep you hydrated though. I also remember the time you insisted on bringing steak and lobster for a tailgate in Lot 67/68. After much resistance from me, you won and it was AMAZING. You became a legend at the 12th Fan Tailgaters tailgate! I could go on and on (and probably have gone on longer than I should), but you have been an important part of my life for 50+ years. I love you David Tyner! I am going to miss you beyond belief, but the memory of our great times together will carry me on. God bless you my friend! Rest in peace!

Big Dave! What a shock; I have such a huge void in my heart! You're one of the few guys that I have comfortably and proudly told I love you! I was recently thinking of the fun we were going to have when Laura and I finally move to Aggieland full time. Those great times will be just put on hold for later.

Looking back on our life together, what great times! I consider it a blessing that you were such a big part of my life throughout the years! Starting out on Kayla Lane (Becky and I on the good end of course). Our little neighborhood was full of boys to play and fight with and woods behind it to help with our growing up. I still remember the time you were chasing Mark Riggs and he "juked and jived" you right into a tree! As fate would have it, you and Becky moved into a house 1 street over after getting married. Little Jillian would stop by and visit my Mom and Dad on their way down to Nana and PawPaw's. Mom and Dad cherished those visits! I had the good fortune of working with you at ARCO Chemical/Lyondell Petrochemical in East Plant operations for several years. Who said you couldn't have fun at work? They didn't know you! We completed a lot of great projects during our time working there, you working days and coordinating the projects. Duck and goose hunting in Garwood, TX. Man those were some good times! Heck, we even were able to harvest a lot of duck and geese along the way! You were a big part of Laura and my wedding almost 31 years ago. I recently saw a picture of the two of us at the rehearsal dinner and wow "what were Becky and Laura thinking"? Great times together continued through your move to Dayton. I seem to recall Becky wanting an oversized couch in a certain room. We tried many ways and David said it'll just have to go somewhere else or out on the curb. Well, Becky got her way, after a few more tries we were able to get in into the room without damaging walls or furniture. Ha! Ha!

Just one of the little boys that lived across the street from us on Kayla. A nice nice family that was always there for us. His Mother took care of us like her own if sick. If you looked outside there was David, Lee Troy, Danny, Paul, Timmy, Steve playing football or anything else they could get into. RIP David...much to young.

Big Dave, can't say thank you enough for all the hunting, fishing and all the times we shared together. I look back on them as my fondest and most treasured times. I remember celebrating my 21st birthday with you Dave and for those who were not there, you missed out on one of the best times ever with Dave! I know you are in Heaven "popping a top" with our Lord, hopefully you are at least sharing, even though it is probably warm, because that is the way you drink it! I will miss you tremendously, love, Glen "GooB"

Wow, the news of David's passing hit Donna and I like a ton of bricks. We spent a lot of time together, as coworkers and also with our families back in the early 90's. He will be truly missed . This is one of those things that I thought that I could do when I retired, go visit Dave and Becky. Life is way to short.
