Michael J. Lyons Sr.

AGE: 93 • Toms River

Michael J. Lyons Sr. was welcomed by his father William, his mother Geraldine, his brother John, his sisters Mary and Rose and a host of friends and relatives to the comfort of our Lord on Oct. 27th, 2017.

Born in Balinlaugh, Ireland on Aug. 6th, 1924, he worked the land with his family until the age of 13 when he traveled to Scotland to serve as a carpenter/apprentice in pursuit of a better fortune for his family. His journey took him through the bombed out streets of London and finally to America where he enlisted in the army. During this time he moved from New York to Newark, NJ where he met the love of his life, Dolores Virginia Holey from Newark, NJ.

Michael worked as a cabinet maker/carpenter with the I.U.O.E. Local 68.

He is survived by his loving wife Dolores, his brothers James and Maurice, his sister-in-law Frances McLaughlin, his children Kevin, Michael and his wife Gina, Daniel and his wife Nora, Marybeth Suter and her husband Joseph, Laurie Carty and her husband Lee, and his grandchildren Daniel, Sean, Katie and her fiance' Matt, Sarah, Jennifer, Jamie and her fiance' Andy, Kelly, Michael, Connor, Dari, Devyn and Phillip.

Michael enjoyed working in his garden, creating beauty through wood working and cherished his time with family and friends.

A celebration of his life will occur on Wednesday Nov. 1st, 2017 from 7pm until 9pm at the Silverton Funeral Home, 2482 Church Rd. Toms River, NJ, 08753. A Mass of Christian Burial will be on Thursday Nov. 2nd, 10:30am at St. Luke's Roman Catholic Church in Toms River, NJ.
