Eugene Paul Tyler, age 77, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday. Born in Wooster, he had lived in Canton most of his life. He was a 1958 graduate of Wooster High School, 1969 graduate of Kent State University, earned his Masters from Mt. Saint Joseph College and was a retired teacher from the Canton City Schools. Eugene was a member of the Basilica of Saint John the Baptist and a life member of the O.E.A. and N.E.A. Survived by his wife, Linda (Hosfeld) Tyler, daughters, Melinda (Ron) Chandler, Melanie Tyler, Meredith (David) Street, Monica (Brad) Shadle and Michelle (Jim) Pappas, son Eugene R. (Betty) Tyler, 13 grandchildren, sisters, Margaret (Steve) Durkin, Barb (Don) Baker and Mary (Tim) Zuercher and brother, Pat (Suzie) Tyler. Preceded in death by his parents, Eugene H. and Dorothy Tyler. Mass of Christian Burial will be Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at the Basilica of Saint John the Baptist with Very Reverend John E. Sheridan, STL, Rector as celebrant. Burial will be in Saint John Cemetery. Friends may call Monday from 5-8 p.m. at the Lamiell Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Basilica of Saint John the Baptist.

Eugene was a good neighbor and great friend.  I will always remember his short, which usually turned out to be lengthy, visits as he would stop by when returning to the neighborhood to see his parents.  Sorry for your loss.  He will be missed.   Stan Hartman

Dear Linda and the Tyler family,   I am sorry to say that I just learned of Gene's passing in Sunday's paper. I want to extend to you and your family our condolences for your loss. There is no doubt that Gene is already in the safe and loving arms of Jesus. I hope you and the Children can find comfort and peace in that knowledge.    

My sincere condolences to the entire Tyler family.   Prayers of comfort during these difficult times.  Please know I hold you all close to my heart.  With love,  Sherri Marzick



So sorry for your loss. 



My prayers are with you. Love & prayers. Prayer is powerful.
