Reuben C. Tyson, “Don” of Newtown , died on Saturday, June 1, 2019, after a courageous 26 month battle with lung cancer, at St. Mary Medical Center, Langhorne. He was 76.

Don was know for his tenacity and adventure, “he wasn’t afraid to try anything”, he owned and flew his own Piper Cub airplane, had several Harley Davidson motorcycles, not only did he operate these but meticulously cared for them.  He was a long time supporter of Philadelphia sports teams. He enjoyed watching NASCAR events and he loved Landscaping and gardening. He also enjoyed going to the Movies, and he was a huge Elvis fan, with a particular fondness of his gospel music, and even got to see him once in person. 

Don will be dearly missed for his wisdom, knowledge of just about everything; he was our strength, his guidance to his entire family was and will always be admired.   Don had a no-nonsense approach, a work ethic like no other, and an extremely strong will and determination and perseverance to just keep on going, he never stopped.
