“Thank you, my dearest, Deryck Allen & beautiful Nefertini for ensuring eye know my Tyrone Proctor has left us. It is difficult to write in tears. This is a huge, huge loss to all of my Soul Train family, the world, and especially to Dance. This photograph surely captures the grace, finesse, superior styled being & dancer he will always be remembered as. 3ye still feel Tyrone swinging me so precisely and flawlessly on the outskirts of the Soul Train stage because the beautiful dance we did together required room & space. It was my sincerest hope to see you again with the S T Family. 3ye love Tyrone Proctor — We have lost a Legend this day. You remain in a Sacred place in my heart. My deepest condolences to the Proctor family & my beloved Soul Train Family Rest In Power”

Anatomic Jack and Dance Company who also confirmed the death of Tyrone Proctor on Facebook described him as a mentor.
“Tyrone Proctor Thank you for everything! You were more than a mentor to me. I saw you as family.
At first you were calling me Warna. Later I got the name Wanda until you later on got my name right.
We have so many memories with you and they keep going through my head like a movie.
The world has lost an icon and a legend! Keeping your legacy going is a difficult and serious task which requires a great deal of responsibility that comes with it.
It hurts knowing I will never be able to see you again and twirl in your living room to one of the powerful disco tracks you would play for us.
Forever grateful for having you in my life Papa T! The pain is real..”
Eric Moncell Durden Jr also penned down his tribute to the late legend. Eric said Tyrone death will never be forgotten so soon.
“Rip Tyrone Proctor a Soul Train legend. No matter what I will always hear your voice in the back of my head screaming WERK!!! I will miss the small conversation we had on the phone about soul train, dance, and putting in that work.
I will miss you cussing me out saying *I am a 60 something-year-old Queen if I can do it so can you honey, you better werk”. I will miss your binder of pictures and poses and the videos you would share in class. I will miss you cussing me out if I didn’t make sure you looked good before you started class.
I would always watch him in footage and be like wow I could call him right now and I would wonder who am I and how did I get so lucky to be able to build this small relationship with a legend. You have inspired me and my fiance in so many ways it would take years to explain them all. We will miss you rip.”
