Tylone attended Humboldt elementary, SEI Academy middle school and Grant high school.
Tylone has a surviving son, Zaylyn James Tolliver. Tylone loved him dearly, Zaylyn was Tylone’s everything his motivation, his peace, his joy, and his heartbeat.
Tylone was a social butterfly, he was always about good times, laughter, smiles and full of jokes. Although life was full of
challenges, Tylone always found a way to smile through it all.
One of the ways he dealt with life's challenges was “freestyling/rapping.” He would freestyle about all types of things, life,
survival, money, family, and finding a better way. Tylone also
enjoyed playing baseball and throwing knives - he had a really strong Arm with great precision. Tylone was a really funny person, someone you really enjoyed being around because it was always good times.
Tylone was a big man but on the inside full of love, compassion, and charity. If he had it, you had it.
