Doing a random google on my former advisor and professor, I was sad to see this obituary. Dr. Tyznik was not only the best teacher, but a wonderful advisor and listener. He advocated for me while I was in school, and he wrote a letter of recommendation for me when I graduated.
I contacted him several times throughout the years, and he ALWAYS remembered me. He was thrilled to know I moved to his home state. To this day I still repeat stories he told, remember his classes fondly. And, if I recall, he LOVED to iron.
You were a rare and wonderful man. Thank you for your guidance and teachings.

I had Dr. Tyznik for a graduate level course during the summer of 1984. He was by far one of the best teachers I've ever had. He simultaneously challenged and encouraged each of the students in our class, and made each of us feel that we were super-important to him. He was such an enthusiastic teacher!! Although I just had him for the one course, I will always remember many things he said and how he challenged me. Years later I contacted him, and he still remembered me as one of the 'summer graduate class of 1984.' I am very sad to hear that he passed away, but please know that he had a TREMENDOUS legacy on so many of us. I will always have fond memories of Dr. Tyznik.

My undergrad advisor, friend and mentor. Remember sitting in his office for hours just talking. Best thing was the final at his house for Animal Science 630 - Ask me what happens to feed once a cow picks it up until it ends up out the other end - truly sadden by his passing, even after all these years

I remember taking his animal nutrition class in 1974. He as a great teacher! He reminded me of my Uncle Bill both in personality and appearance. I will never forget him! Tim Glaros
