To the Lyons Family:
I am saddened by Richard's passing. We played ball against each other in almost every season. There was no quit in Richard, he was a fierce, but fair competitor!

Years later we met in the banking world, him as a banker, me as a vendor. We truly enjoyed that relationship, along with our FaceBook friendship for all these latter years.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sorrow, BUT we know we'll see him again on the other side!

Please accept my deepest and hearfelt condolences at this time of your loss. May the God who 'binds up the brokenhearted" and " comforts all who mourn"sustain your family during this difficult time. Isaiah 61:1,2

Richard was a many decade friend with whom I shared his great love for sports. Richard always seemed to have kind words & thoughts for everyone he encountered. He also seemed to always look for the good in each situation or person. I am honored to be able to have called this man a friend. The world is lessened with this loss. The man seemed to wear a perpetual smile and it was infectious. He was truly a GOOD man.
