David was a 1975 graduate of Galena Park High School where he enjoyed playing football. David was married to Becky for 40 years and during that time they were blessed with two daughters. He was a wonderful father who spent time teaching his girls to hunt, fish and enjoy life. David and Becky were also blessed with nine grandchildren. He was a very proud Toady and spending time with his grandchildren was a tremendous joy in his life.
The main love of David's life was Becky and his family. David also had another love that many didn't know of, Industrial Firefighting and David was very good at it. David served on fire brigades and leadership roles while employed at Arco Chemical and British Petroleum. But David found his calling as an Industrial Fire Instructor at the Fire School at Texas A&M University.
He was a great instructor and was constantly requested by many of the Industrial Fire Brigades who received training there. David made an impact on countless Brigade members and he will be missed by many, for years to come. He truly made a difference.
In lieu of flowers, David wished for donations to be made to "TEEX/ESTI Tuition Assistance Account" in the name of David Tyner.
