Tyrone T. Cloud
August 16, 1956 - May 27, 2012
On May 27, 2012, Tyrone T. Cloud was called home. Tyrone, the loving son of the late Albright Sr. and Eva Mae Cloud, was born August 16, 1956 in Alexandria, Virginia. Tyrone was the youngest of seven children. He received his formal education in the Alexandria Public Schools where he attended George Washington Middle School and Parker Gray High School. In 1994 Tyrone accepted Christ in his life and united with the Assembly of the Saints Church under the leadership of Bishop George Haskins. In 2010 he renewed his love for Christ and united with Resurrection Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Leonard Massie.
At an early age the family discovered Tyrone’s god given talent for music and singing. He received his first set of drums when he was 10 years old. He would only have listen to a song one time to be able to replay it. Tyrone was affectionately known as “Ty” or “Top Cat” by his friends and family. He was a wonderful father, brother, and uncle who loved his family very much. Anyone who knew Tyrone would agree that he was an entrepreneur by nature and a flamboyant dresser. He was known for his extravagant suits which were matched from his hat to his gators!
Tyrone was a member of a harmonic, Acapella street corner vocal group called “After the Storm” (formerly known as Alexx). The group’s founders were Tyrone, Reggie Washington and Tony Harris. Tyrone carried the seductive sweet sound as the second tenor and instructed the choreography. He was known as the jokester of the group and had a talent for getting the audience involved with his great sense of humor.
Tyrone leaves to cherish his memory: his daughter, Theresa Menefee; four grandchildren, Damarius, Isreal, Asia, and Phoenix; five sisters, Bernice (Willie) Simmons, Geneva (Robert) Peace, Eloise (George) Kelly, Linda (Rick) Stewart, and Adrian Cloud; one brother, Albright (Stephanie) Cloud, Jr., plus a host of nieces and nephew other relatives and friends.
