Albany, NY - Robert Jeffrey Tyler, age 52, entered fully into the presence of our Lord Jesus on Tuesday, August 24th, 2021 unexpectedly with his wife Tracy by his side. Jeff is predeceased by his father Robert F. Tyler and mother Jaquelin Hartwell. He is survived by his loving wife Tracy Giannetto Tyler and siblings Masani Tyler, Tracy Tyler-Luter (Thomas), Michael Tyler (Tasha), Will Dalton and Heather Lanaux (Nate), along with many step-siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and loving friends who will miss him dearly.
Jeff was a devout Christian who faithfully served God and was a spiritual mentor to many. He was loving, selfless and loyal to everyone he met and made them feel like a part of his family. Jeff was imaginative and creative as a child and enjoyed making costumes and creating special effects. These interests led him to a career in art and design which blossomed almost 35 years ago when he saw his mentor, Mark Sapino airbrushing at the New York State Fair in Syracuse, NY and changed his life forever. Jeff’s God-given talent in art became his legacy and brought him to his dear friend and business partner, Dr. Michael Sikirica, MD, and together they started Artistic Minds Laboratory. His talent was admired by everyone and will always be remembered. Jeff’s passion for life was seen in his smile, laughter and fun-loving nature and shined through dance, martial arts, playing congas and above all, praise and worship for the Lord.
