In memory of
Donald Paul Tyler
This is the story of Donald Paul Tyler. Donald was a wonderful man that was loved, is greatly missed, and will always be cherished. Donald was an amazing husband, father, son, brother, and fisher of fish like no other. Donald's story starts on March 30, 1956 in Hinesville, Georgia. He followed his big brother Michael Tyler (Daynna) as the second son of George and Josephine Tyler. After many years of moving around with the military, and the addition of his two younger sisters Karena, and Sabrina Tyler, the family settled in Panama City Florida. Early on, Donald showed a deep love for being on the ocean. This would become his second home. He was also an avid hunter, and would routinely surprise his family with all kinds of wild animals he caught to cook for dinner. When Donald decided to set sail on his own, he moved to Panama City Beach to be close to his beloved ocean. This is where he met the love of his life, Lisa Tyler of Birmingham Alabama, while strolling on the beach. She was so impressed with his witty pick up lines that she agreed to a date. Little did she know he had her hook line and sinker. They were married on Jan. 26, 1980 in Birmingham, Alabama. With this union Donald inherited a new family to include his mother-in-law Peggy Hinote, brother-in-law Eddie Hinote (Mary), and sister-in-law Cheryl Capouya (Neilsen). In 1982 Donald and Lisa began the expansion of their family with the birth of their first child Amanda Kate (Katie) Tyler. She was followed by her brothers Lucas Paul Tyler, and Nathan Keith Tyler. In the years that followed Donald and his family continued to live in Panama City Beach. He was a fishing captain at Treasure Island Marina for the majority of his career, except for the time he decided he wanted to dodge Pirates off the coast of Africa for a living. This was simply living up to his favorite phrase of "There is nothing to fear, but fear itself". Donald lived his life fearlessly. On his downtime Donald enjoyed spending time in the woods of the surrounding areas. This is where he was continuously trying to catch that next big buck to mount. He loved helping others, and would be the first to show up when anyone was in need. He was an amazing provider for his family, and would go above and beyond for anything they wanted or needed. Donald's grandchildren Gabriel and Aleah Tyler were his heart and joy. Time spent at "Moose and Grandaddy's" was special for his grandchildren, and there was never a dull moment. On Nov. 1, 2019 Donald left this world and fearlessly took his first steps into the next, certainly to be greeted by his beloved son Lucas, and all his loved ones who passed before him. And so the story goes on until we see our beloved Donald again. We love you and miss you. Memorial services will be held on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019 at 2 p.m. at Woodlawn United Methodist Church. The family will receive friends at the church on Thursday from 1 p.m. - 2 p.m. prior to the service. In lieu of flowers, those desiring to may make a donation to the charity of their choice in memory of Donald Paul Tyler.
