FAIRBORN — James Baird Lyman died peacefully at his home Monday, July 14, 2014 with his children by his side. He led one of the most amazing lives one could live. As a young Air Force Officer, he fell deeply in love with his soul mate, Yvonne. Together they raised three wonderful children and danced through life for over 50 years together. While Jim Lyman will be missed more than words can express, knowing that he and Yvonne are together again makes us all smile. Now they're dancing. Graveside funeral will be held at Byron Cemetery, 1 pm Thursday, July 17, with Pastor Craig Fourman officiating. After the service, a celebration-of-life party will be held at his home on Grand Avenue in Fairborn. Attendees are asked to wear brightly colored clothing, bring a brightly colored umbrella.
