Edward Tyler, II


Edward James Tyler, II, 57, of Preston, died on May 29th at Easton Memorial Hospital. A long time resident of the Eastern Shore, Edward was born on October 13th, 1962 to the late Joyce Collins and Edward James Tyler.  Edward graduated from Colonel Richardson in 1980, and went on to earn his Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Towson University in 1984.  Upon graduating, Edward returned to Eastern Shore to follow in his father’s footsteps by joining the family business of Edward Tyler Drywall.

Within his profession, Edward gained a reputation for being one of the most sought after and meticulous craftsmen in the area. Even stronger than his devotion to his family business was his affinity for golf and the outdoors. When he wasn’t on the golf course, one of his favorite spots to visit was Seneca Rocks in West Virginia during the Fall, where he would spend time admiring the beautiful mountains in the national park with family and friends.

Edward is survived by his daughter, Abbigail Tyler, sisters Darlene Krauch, Pamela Tyler Ginneman, Robin Lynn Tyler, niece Michael R. Barnes, and many more nieces and nephews.

The family is welcoming visitors to celebrate Edward’s life on Saturday, June 6th, from 11-12 at Newcomb and Collins Funeral Home in Cambridge. A private service will follow with Rev. Steve Bloodsworth officiating.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please donate to a charity close to Edward’s heart, the Baywater Animal Rescue, 4930 Bucktown Road, Cambridge, MD 21613.

Ed and I went to Towson State U together and were roommates for a time. The news of Ed's passing is saddening, as we lost touch when I moved away from the Mid-Atlantic. As I write this, there are so many memories that come to mind that it is hard to pick one to share. While at Towson, we had many great days just hanging out on campus and I recall many times when we laughed so hard that it made us cry...we had that much fun. While Ed did not play lacrosse, or even pick up a stick prior to coming to TSU, he became an avid fan of the sport because his other roommates (Chris Rosata, Jim Bruno and I) all played for the Tigers. We even nicknamed him All-American Ed, as telling the ladies that he was an All-American lacrosse player was part of our schtick when we would go out on the town. To us, he was an honorary member of the team and was one of our biggest fans. Beyond campus, we would go on large group camping trips to Deep Creek Lake and, so I was glad to read here that he took a liking to WV and continued on with his passion for the great outdoors. Abbigail, I am saddened and will pray that you will be blessed with courage, peace and strength in the days ahead. The Lord took you too soon my friend. RIP ED

Ed and I became friends 17 yrs ago. We were both in the same business. We just hit it off right away. Going to W.Vir with Ed a few times will be something I will cherish the rest of my life. I was helping Ed the week prior to his death. Glad I was there to spend time together. I will miss a Dear Friend that has passed way to soon. Ed you will be missed by so many. I thank God that we were friends and Will Always have Memories of you to carry with me till it is My Time to go. Love and Miss you Brother.

Ed was a long time friend. We shared many meals together and stories. He gave his heart to Jesus and was baptized at Calvary Wesleyan Church in Harrington where he attended with me. He is missed already. Alice and I will see you again someday. Sincerely, John and Alice

Eddie and I met in 9th grade, 43 years ago. We forged a lifelong friendship. We shared our love of family, Orioles, cats and hard work. Words cannot express the sadness that I feel due to his passing much too soon.We still have a bottle of champagne leftover from my 40th birthday to drink. Rest in peace my dear friend. May your soul soar free. With my deepest and most sincere sympathies to the entire family, especially Abby. You were his world. CRHS 1980 classmate - Kelly Richardson Henry
