On Tuesday, September 8, 2020, heaven gained a very special angel. Yul Dimitrius Tyler Sr. departed from this life onto a better journey. Yul was born July 29, 1973 in Hampton, VA., to Wilfred Tyler (Fella) and Myra Jones.

Yul was vibrant, lovable, and a DIE HARD DALLAS COWBOYS FAN! He was educated in Newport News Public Schools and he was a master roofer with Harris & Harris Roofing Company for many years. Yul devoted his life to Christ and attended Little Bethel Baptist Church. Though he is no longer with us in flesh, he will always be with us in memory, spirit, heart, and soul. 

Yul was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Winifred Tyler, maternal grandfather, Theodore Perry, his father, Wilfred Tyler, his mother in law, Pam Warren, his sister, Alicia Smith, brother, Kareem Jones, and friend, Lavell Singleton.

Yul leaves to cherish his memory: his wife Gerita. His children, Tashira, Yul Jr., Yurie, Rash’d, and Rahsaun. His mother, Myra Jones, his grandsons, Jamir, Darion, Jadien, and Kadien. His brothers, Jermaine, Brandon, Eric, Raymond, & Bryan. His sisters, Javona, Tamiko (Poppy), and Ashley. His step mother, Wanda Brown. His bonus mom, Linda Tyler. Grandmothers, Frances and Mary Lee. Uncle, Lewis Tyler (Diane), his Father-in-law, George Warren, his “Best Friends”, Daymon, Kenyon, and Jimmy, along with a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.
