Two brothers, Richard Tyler of Joliet, Illinois and Gilbert Tyler of Clearwater, Florida and two sisters, Michelle Tyler of Ft. Myers, Florida and Georgia Tyler of Dwight, Illinois.

Mike was able to command a conversation with anyone he met. Whether motorcycle friends on bike runs or clients in business board rooms.

In his accomplished career, he received two Excellence in Consturction Awards form Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc., received two U.S. patents, and earned several awards for management from cities throughout Florida.

You are forever in our thoughts and every prayer and I will always remember your mantra “When life gets complicated and stressed, I ride.”
