Robert “Bobby” Lee Tyler Jr. was unexpectedly called home by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Wednesday, October 6, 2021. Robert was born to Robert and Paulette Tyler on May 2, 1966 in Chicago, Illinois. Being part of a military family, he attended primary school in Ansbach, Germany then relocated to Baytown where he graduated from Ross Sterling High School in 1984. During his high school years, Robert enjoyed participating in the JROTC program where he excelled as a leader. Later, he entered the United States Coast Guard where he attended Maritime Law Enforcement School. In 1987, Robert married June Frederick Tyler and started building a family that he absolutely loved and cherished. Robert attended Lee College where he obtained a certificate in Process Technology. He started his career as a Process Operator for Rohm & Haas Chemical Manufacturing Company (now Dow Chemical Company) in 1999 where he was eventually promoted to the position of Activity Coordinator/Gatekeeper.
In his spare time, Robert enjoyed watching Astros baseball, traveling, cooking/grilling, collecting guns, riding motorcycles and hanging out with family and friends. He was a music lover who had recently started taking guitar lessons. He could liven up any karaoke stage with his version of Neon Moon, so he envisioned himself as a stage performer one day. He was also a huge vehicle enthusiast. Not only did he like all kinds of cars and trucks, but he loved motorcycles. He enjoyed his Harley Road Glide, but was already on the path to purchase his first Indian Motorcycle. But out of all of his enjoyment, he mostly enjoyed spending time with his wife and two boys. He loved trying new recipes and restaurants, going on weekend trips and extended vacations with family and friends.
Robert was preceded in death by his father, Robert Lee Tyler Sr., and his brother, John Paul Tyler. He is survived by his mother Paulette K. Tyler-Aiken, wife of 34 years, June Tyler, sons Robert Lee Tyler III (Krysinda), and Jonah Cedric Tyler; Siblings Reginald L. Tyler (Darlene), Paula C. Tyler-Frank, Kristina A. Tyler and Demetrius Jackson. He is also survived by a whole host of nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, in-laws, cousins and friends who totally loved and enjoyed his company. He was quick-witted, larger than life itself, and was definitely the life of every party, so he will be truly missed by all.
The family will receive friends from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 14, 2021 at the Crespo & Jirrels Funeral Home Chapel in Baytown. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, October 15, 2021 also at the Crespo & Jirrels Funeral Home Chapel.
Following the services, the family will receive friends at a repast in the Tejas Room of the Baytown Community Center, 2407 Market Street, Baytown.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven; a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance…Ecclesiastes 3:1-4
