Tyrone was a great man + a true patriot, quiet about his service but vocal about need to respect & take care of returning soldiers. He was a gentleman with an unmistakable voice + tireless energy. I am so saddened by his passing. The veterans community has lost a legitimate hero. https://twitter.com/saydetroit/status/1233133880779190283 …
