David John Lyons
of Lebanon, NH

LEBANON, NH - David John Lyons, died unexpectedly at his new house on Thursday August 9th, 2018. David was born on December 17th, 1982, in Lowell, MA, to Jesse and Katherine (Sullivan) Lyons.

David is so sadly survived by: his son Declan John Lyons, his parents, Katherine and Jesse Lyons, his sister, Amy, her partner Mike 'Kipp' and their baby boy Killian and Gramps Raymond Sullivan of Lowell, MA. David was survived by the beautiful love of his life & soul mate, Fiance Michelle Crouse, her daughter and (soon to have been adopted) daughter of his own, Madison, 'Madd'.

He was predeceased by his Grandma Lyons, Nana Sullivan, and his two Uncles Mark Sullivan and John Lyons.

David grew up, and graduated Lebanon High School in 2001. He was involved in Football and Track & Field. He held the school record for the longest shot-put throw. David went on to Plymouth State for some college, and a little football.

David was a kind soul. He was humongous and so was his heart. He was known around the Upper Valley as the Gentle Giant. Family was very important to him. David had so many friends that were also his family. He had an amazing, tight-group of 'brothers' who he would do absolutely anything for, and they would do anything for him. You all know who you are!

David loved spending time with his wonderful Fiance, Michelle. They were together all the time, and loved taking trips to the ocean. The love they had for one another was pure and visible to anyone who they graced their presence with. Michelle brought out the very, very best in David. They just bought their first house together and were to be married September 22, 2018. David held a job he was proud of at Serve Pro, in West Lebanon, as their Project Manager.

David loved to read and learn about, pretty much anything. He loved history. He was a smart and very funny man, who was teaching his Son how to be a good person. He loved Declan with his whole heart and soul and was happy and very excited about making his and Michelle's family united. He was very proud of Madison and would also do anything for her and was raising her also, to be a loyal and honest person. Loyalty was a very important part of who David was as a person and will always be remembered as so.
