More  sad news; our oldest Tyzack has died

It is with great sadness I must report that Norman Oswald Tyzack (Norm), who was born on the 20 May 1927 the son of Leonard Victor and Annie Dora Tyzack, died peacefully and without pain on Sunday 20 August 2017.

The funeral service will be held next Tuesday 29th August 2017 at 1.30 pm. The location is Tobin Brothers Funerals at 111 Wheatsheaf Road, Glenroy, Victoria 3046.

Almost 64 years ago, Norm married Freda.

With wife Freda, Norm had three children: Bruce, Heather and Margaret.  Each married and their families have grown up.  Through Bruce, Norm had two grandchildren and one great grandchild. Through Heather, Norm had two grandchildren and two great grandchildren.  Through Margaret, Norm had three grandchildren and one great grandchild.  Norm was very proud of his family and much loved by all.

Norm became the centre of attention at the Tyzack family’s 150th anniversary gathering last year, when he took on the hefty responsibility as the official caretaker of the Tyzack Bible.

When interviewed it was clear Norm took the receipt of this tome very seriously.

I find I am quite emotional about Norm’s passing.  He was always friendly to me, and I liked his twinkling eyes. Norm’s passing is a reminder of our mortality – and how now there are quite a few of us that represent the next generation who are ageing.

  1. Hi Helen

    I was sorry to hear that Norm has passed away. He lived to a good age. I only met him two or three times but Mum (Dorothy Tyzack) kept in touch with both Norm and Freda over the years and I was pleased to catch up with them at the reunion last year.

    Thank you for your efforts in keeping us up-to-date with the happenings in the family.

    Best wishes

    Roslyn Henry


  2. Just reading this now, but I am sorry for your loss. Our earth would have lost a tremendous human being with the passing of Norm Tyzach.
    Losing our loved ones does remind us of our mortality. My mom and dad are both gone, and it hits home when you realize you are the oldest generation.
