Tyler James Lee, a 40-year Lake County resident, passed peacefully in his own home on Saturday, July 16.

A lifetime health problem took him, but he was filled with energy and love and humor right up to the moment he slipped away. A light went out, and he will be grievously missed.

Tyler is survived by daughter, Maya (Tim) Hadjes, and children Ben and McKaela of Meridian, Idaho. He is also survived by his wife, Donna, and his stepchildren, Kathleen Craig Terdiman (Daniel) of Sausalito and Mike Craig and children Ashley and Matt of Sunnyvale.

Tyler and Donna bought their homestead on Bartlett Mountain in 1976, home schooling their children and commuting to work in the Barnes Yard. Tyler later worked for Vittel's Bartlett Springs plant and then became the Nice Water master.

In 1996 they retired to the mountain, developing their solar system and organic garden.

Tyler earned his bachelor of arts degree at Sacramento State and his master's degree at San Francisco State.

Learning was his lifelong passion, and contributions in his memory to KPFZ (88.1FM) community radio, 149 N. Main St., Ste 220, Lakeport CA 95453, where his voice was often heard or to Friends of the Lake County Library would honor him.

The date for a celebration of his life will be announced.
