  1. My condolences to your family. We have never met, but Milton Tyson was my mother’s cousin. Mom (Anna Marie Hughes Sellers) is still living and I will be sure to show her this. It sounds like he was a fine man.

  2. Mr Tyson was and is one the finest people I’ve have met. Being friends with his son kinda made you part of the family, they had me over for several Thanksgiving to eat and I enjoyed sitting and talking to Mr Tyson is was just a good man. I also remember when he owned the 2 carwashes I went by often to have my vehicles and was and that’s when I understood why they talked about his generation being the backbone of this country, he was the owner but he was out working harder than anyone, that’s just what kind of man he was. Tammy, Robin you’ll hit a home run when you got him as your grandfather, Nick I love you brother I’ll be praying for your family. Dan Fountain
