Matthew Austin Tyler was born June 25, 1973 in Holdenville, Oklahoma to Howard Tyler and Linda Dunn Tyler and passed from this life in Holdenville on August 5, 2012 at the age of 39. Matt lived in Wetumka all of his life. He attended school there and was a graduate of Wetumka High School. He later attended Seminole Junior College. He was married to Sharon Pack and to this union two children were born, Blake and Avery. Some nine years ago he and his father opened Tyler Hardware on main street in Wetumka. He worked there until ill health forced him to take time away from his duties. As his health improved he worked for the Hughes County EMS and Lowes in McAlester, which he helped open, and in Shawnee. He then worked a short time in the oil and gas industry before starting to work for the City of Wetumka. There he worked as a Certified Animal Control and Code Enforcement officer. He was one of the few in the area with the training and certification to properly operate a dog pound. He loved animals and always wanted them cared for in a humane manner. Matt served some twenty-one years on the Wetumka Rural Fire Department. He served as the department secretary for several years and won the "Fireman of the Year" award numerous times. He was also a member of the Wetumka Chamber of Commerce. He loved fishing and shooting guns but the time Matt spent was the time he shared with his children. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Earnest and Irene Dunn, his paternal grandfather Howard Tyler and his paternal grandmother Frances Tyler. Survivors include: his two children Blake and Avery Tyler of the home; his parents Howard and Linda Tyler of Wetumka; a brother Jason Tyler of Ada; his girlfriend Christine Pangle of Wetumka; his paternal grandmother Nelda Tyler of Earlsboro; along with aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. Pallbearers will be Aron Stringfellow, Dave Jones, Scott Pack, Jacob Pack, Aaron Walker and Justin Cote. Honorary Pallbearers will be Donald Bowman, Wetumka Fire Department and all the City of Wetumka employees. Funeral services will be Friday, August 10 at 10:00 a.m. at the First Assembly of God Church in Wetumka with Rev. Darrell "Bo" Gibbs and Rev. John Roberts officiating.
