COLBERT – William Dwaine “Pop” Tyner, 81, died Wednesday, June 23, 2010, at his residence.
His was an amazing life filled with adventure and family. He was a self-taught guitarist, singer of folk and gospel songs and filled with a wonderful sense of humor. He was a loving husband, devoted father and the best barber ever to hold a pair of scissors. So well established was his business, that it is still hard to find a person young or old who hasn’t had their hair cut by him at least once. In his spare time he loved to go to North Carolina trout fishing, but he mostly kept close to home where he and his wife, Ida, raised three sons. He has left a legacy of memories that will always be with us. Mr. Tyner was preceded in death by a son, Keith Tyner; and a grandson, Lee Tyner.
Survivors include his lovely wife, Ida Kesler Tyner, whom he celebrated 60 years of marriage on June 7; sons, Kenneth Tyner, wife Angelia, Mark Tyner, wife Jeannie, and Grant Tyner, wife Lise; grandchildren, Mimi, Audre, Jim, Brandon, Spence, Joel, Harrison, Isak, Joshua and Kaja.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, June 26, at 11 a.m., from the Crossroads Church on Hwy. 29 with the Revs. Morris Sapp and Dennis Kesler officiating. Burial will be in the New Hope Worship Center Cemetery in Danielsville. Pallbearers are Jonathon, Brandon, Spence and Harrison.
The family will receive friends Friday, June 25, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the funeral home.

Lord & Stephens Funeral Home, Danielsville, is in charge of arrangements.
