Tyrone was born May 11, 1963, in London, England and with his family moved to Canada in 1969 and settled in Winnipeg (Transcona). In his youth, this incredible man discovered his diverse talents.

A huge classical music fan, one of his true passions in his life was the piano. He taught himself to play at a young age and performed in many lounges throughout Winnipeg.
Tyrone's first job was with Shell Canada where he eventually progressed to owning his own station. After earning his BA (Honours) he began working in the precast concrete industry with companies including Genstar and Armtec. He ended his career working as Corporate Safety Officer and National Fleet Manager for Tetra Tech EBA Engineers and Scientists in Alberta.
He leaves to mourn his beloved sister Nadia (Reid) Douglas, niece Amanda; cousin Georgina Ball and Aunt Mary Kapitan; his estranged brother Angus Lebeef - formally Harith Alzubaidi; numerous relatives around the globe and many dear friends.

I love you so much Ty, my big brother.

for your love and laughter.
Rest in Peace.
You were an amazing person.

I’ve known Tyrone since the Winter of 2016 when he started working in our Edmonton operations. In his time with Tetra Tech, Tyrone professionally fulfilled his responsibilities as a Corporate Safety Representative and National Fleet manager and was part of a safety team that administered safety programs across our offices in western and Northern Canada. He was a dependable person that was a pleasant and committed individual to work with. From my time working with Tyrone, I came to know him as a conscientious person of strong character. He always struck me as a highly principled individual that would not back down from a fight when he felt he was doing the right thing. Some may have seen it as stubborn, but I saw it as a commitment to his ideals. His leadership role as part of our safety team was a perfect fit for him. Having been injured on a job site in his early years, Tyrone’s concern for job safety came from a place of genuine credibility and desire to improve and make the workplace safer. I always enjoyed my conversations with Tyrone, as he was very affable and had a sharp wit. I came to appreciate him as a man of stern moral fibre. News of his passing was received with a heavy heart and it deeply saddened me and all of the people that worked with him. Rest in Peace Tyrone.
