January 5, 1967 – August 21, 2020
Robert Edwin Tier was born January 5, 1967 in Titusville, Florida to Michael and Beverly Tier. He was called home to be with his Father on August 21, 2020 in Daytona Beach, Florida. On the evening of August 21, 2020 at approx 7:45 p.m., Rob suffered from a massive and fatal heart attack while celebrating at a birthday party surrounded by friends who loved him dearly. Just before his passing, he was seen smiling, laughing, and chatting on the couch waiting for a big piece of birthday cake! At the time of his passing Rob resided on his house boat “Lifeline”, which he was so proud of, at Coquina Marina in Daytona Beach, FL. Rob loved his country. He was truly “Proud to be an American!” He served his country in the United States Marine Corp from 1990-1992. He is a combat Veteran of Desert Storm where he held the job of Engineer and Rifle Expert. He was the recipient of the Good Conduct Medal. Robert was a family man who adored his children. He did whatever he had to do to provide a home and good life for them and he made sure they never went without, even when he fell on hard times. He always tried to be their best friend, while still being stern and strict when needed. He instilled good morals and values into his children such as love, kindness, loyalty, and trust. Rob also loved his animals, Hershey, Sgt Kodak, oh so many to name, but his latest love was his service dog Llyod. Rob was a genuine and true friend, he never met a stranger, and whenever anyone asked him for something, he never said no. Rob was a goofball and loved to make people laugh. He made the Best Santa Clause Ever and his smile could go on for miles. One of his favorite sayings was “Live, Laugh, Love.” Rob always had a passion for helping others and he went back to school later in life to obtain an education that would allow him to use his skills to do just that. Rob graduated with his Bachelor's degree in Applied Behavioral Analysis from Kaplan University with a GPA of 3.98 at the age of 49. He later re-enrolled at Kaplan University in pursuit of his Masters degree. He held several job roles over the years, most recently he was a Driver, a Counselor, and a Radio-Show Host. In addition to that, Rob was also an Ordained Minister. He loved to minister to anyone who would listen. He has been a part of 3 non-for-profit ministries to include Family Life Matters Lifeline, Broken Arrow PTSD Dive Foundation, and his latest venture was Lifeline-Addiction-Resources. Rob is survived by his son Caleb N. Tier (20), Faith Tier (15), parents Michael and Beverly Tier. Sister Joanie Tier, Brother John Paul Tier, his grandpup Angel, his service dog Lloyd, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and a multitude of friends who loved him as family.

The service, hosted by Church House of Healing and performed by Pastor Kleyn Russell, will begin at 11 a.m. and a lunch will follow at 1 p.m. Due to COVID restrictions, the facility can only accommodate 30 Guests maximum, (guest list has been determined by the family).

We have known Robert Teir since early 1980's at Midwestern Seminary with his dad Mike. Rob always seemed like a son because he had stayed at our house with our children. We loved him and will look forward meeting him in Heaven. Mike and Bev we love you and will continue to pray for you. Larry and Elaine Beaver

I counted myself as one of Rob's many, many friends! He was cherished! I met him when he was an undergraduate applied behavior analysis student at Kaplan University, now Purdue University Global. I taught him in several classes and we shared some challenging experiences that our families had faced with each other, knowing that God saw us through them all - it was a sharing of faith! He gave so much of himself to everyone! I miss him so much and am praying for his children, his family, and his friends. Harla

What a nice guy. I met Rob only once last year when he drove a motorcoach tour of mine to the Woodbine Opry in southeast Georgia. He didn't know any of us from anyone, but Rob was generous with his spirit and his time, and we all enjoyed dancing with him during the evening. (Quintessential Rob...he made sure everyone got to dance who wanted to and that no one was left out.) Rob was a kind man, easy to get along with from the first time we met, and genuine. I don't think we can ask for more from anyone - he was a friendly, giving character. I will miss his joie de vivre and his smile, but I'm so glad I met him!

My friend and colleague. I am so blessed to have had Rob in my life. He was always willing to be there for me and anyone else for that matter! Our change of shift conversarions could sometimes last for hours and he and Lloyd would keep me company during the night shift so I would not be alone.
I love you Rob and I am grateful to have had the time that I had with you. You have touched my life so preciously, giving me hope, guidance, and your genuine authentic self. Always in my heart.
