In Memoriam

George W. "Jack" Tyrie Jr.

It is with heavy hearts, we inform you of the passing of George Walter “Jack” Tyrie Jr. on November 27th at the age of 92. Jack was the third-generation proprietor of John Tyrie & Son, a three-term member of the Baltimore County Council, and a longtime Lutherville resident.

For over 45 years, Jack met with bereaved families to help design and demonstrate monument options to memorialize their loved ones. In 2017, Jack entered into retirement after entrusting Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens to carry on his legacy of creating meaningful monument tributes for area families. Fourth-generation and Jack's son, George W. Tyrie III, oversees all the cemetery installations in keeping with his father's wishes and quality standards. We will miss Jack and offer our sincerest condolences to the Tyrie family.

    When I first came to you, I had just a small idea of what I wanted. When you finished with me, I knew exactly. You were very dedicated to making me happy - and I am! You were very determined to "get it right", and you did. Thanks so much for making the dedication memorial so beautiful.
