Mr. Sonny, as he was affectionately known by family and friends, was born and raised in New Iberia to the late O'Neil James Tyler and the late Catherine Hebert Tyler.

Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Timothy Todd Tyler; and his sister Jacqueline Mary Tyler, who passed away just two days before him.
In keeping with Sonny's wishes, memorial services will be announced at a later date. Sandra has asked that her phone number be shared in this memorial for anyone wanting to contact her. She can be reached at (337) 577-0530.
