He was 66.

Tyler's death went virtually unnoticed until a paid announcement by his family placed in the print edition of The Los Angeles Times Saturday. He was laid to rest at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

Tyler was born in Hollywood on April 17, 1954, and was acting by age 2 on The 20th Century-Fox Hour (1956).

With his distinctive freckles, he appeared on Hazel (1962), The Andy Griffith Show (1962), The Addams Family (1964) and My Three Sons (1964) before landing a part on several episodes of The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet (1961-1963).

On Please Don't Eat the Daisies (1965-1967), he played Kyle Nash, the eldest brother of four kids raised by suburban parents Pat Crowley (b. 1933) and Mark Miller (b. 1924). It had previously been a popular Doris Day (1922-2019) comedy, and was adapted from a best-selling book of the same name by humorist Jean Kerr (1922-2003).

Tyler quit acting after Daisies, becoming a musician and videographer.
