On January 24, 1953, at St. Francis Hospital in Los Angeles, California, God blessed Wesley B. and Victoria (Kemp) Tyler with a baby boy; they named him Anthony. He was the fourth of five children born to this union. Anthony received his formal education in Carson, California at Carson Senior High School; graduating in 1970.
Anthony accepted Christ at a very young age and was baptized at Double Rock Baptist Church in Compton, California. Following his “Big Brother,” Lee, Anthony joined the army in 1973; they were both stationed in Ft. Lewis, Washington; their first duty station; they completed their army stint together in Korea.
While in Korea Anthony met his first wife, Young; to this union one son, Major, was born. After his stint in the army, Anthony moved back to Los Angeles, California; he worked in the dental field as a Dental Prosthetist. Later working as a Unit Clerk for VA Long Beach Healthcare Systems in Long Beach, California where he acquired a love for the medical field; even often thinking and speaking as if he were a doctor. Again following his “Big Brother”, Lee, he moved to San Diego, California where he furthered his education by enrolling at Maric College to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN). In 1996, while working as a Mental Health Counselor at Charter API, Anthony met the love of his life, Bienvinida “Nida”, they were married in 1998. He always bragged that he acquired a “bonus love”, his “Baby Girl”; daughter, Toi; he fondly referred to Nida and Toi as “His Package”.
Anthony’s passions included his collection of trains, antique toy cars and books. He loved his family, especially his nieces, nephews and Labradors. He showered them with gifts; helping and loving them unconditionally. He loved to share his knowledge with everyone who would listen. Anthony will be deeply missed and forever loved.
