Edmund F. Tyler, 90, of Asheville, departed this life on June 14, 2009, in skilled care at the Western North Carolina Baptist Home. He was the beloved son of Edmund and Mary Jessie Tyler, given life on October 4, 1918. He was predeceased by his parents, only sister, Mary Louise Whitmire, and wife, Jane. Edmund graduated and was an alumnus of Cal Tech. As an aeronautical engineer he worked for Lockheed on the development of lift technology for aircraft wings. He was a member of Trinity Episcopal Church. He had a love of cars, gun collecting, investing and music, and could light up a room with his baby blue eyes. The little things in life are what brought him joy. He will be missed by those who held him close to their hearts. May he rest in peace at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale, CA. Groce Funeral Home on Patton Avenue is assisting with local arrangements.

Memories Timeline


  1. I worked at the Baptist Home in asissited living for almost 2 yrs. He was a good man that I really enjoyed talking to.

  2. Enjoyed talking with Edmund about just about anything and especially his classic car. We also had fun shooting out at the gun club. I would pull targets for him when he wanted to shoot by himself. He was a great guy I enjoyed knowing him.

  3. I was out of town when Mr. Tyler passed away. We were happy that he was able to attend our church a good bit in the last couple of years. He was a fine gentleman. God Bless his family.
