Olivet Baptist Church of Petersburg, VA until he relocated back home, returning to New Mt. Zion AME Church.
Tyrone served in the U.S. Army for 11 years as well as the National Guard for 4 years. He was employed with Southside Regional Medical Center for many years until his health failed. Anybody that knew Tyrone knew that he was a faithful Dallas Cowboys fan.

The family of Brother Tyrone Burch in consideration of the current health crisis facing our world, nation, state and local community, has decided to hold a private 50 people or less, family only, funeral service for their loved one with private interment immediately following. While the Burch family would love to be surrounded by your presence, they acknowledge the health risks to family, church members, friends, and particularly to those who are most vulnerable to this disease, the elderly and those with chronic health conditions.
