SEEKONK - Kevin J. Lyon, 62, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 at his home. Born in Providence, he was the son of the late Donald, Sr. and Isabel (Arsenault) Lyon.

Kevin was the owner of Lyon Pallet Co., formerly of Pawtucket, for many years until his retirement. A hard-working man, Kevin enjoyed spending time in Cape Cod with his family and was an avid New England sports fan who loved hosting Sunday football parties and cooking for whoever showed up. He was a generous, funny and loyal guy who would give you the shirt off his back. He was one-of-a-kind. Kevin meant a lot to so many people, and his presence will be greatly missed by the lives he has touched over the years.

He is survived by two sons, Derek J. Lyon and his fiancée, Dacia Silva, of Attleboro and Christopher S. Lyon of Seekonk; his former spouse and mother of his children, Lisa (Catarina) Lyon, also of Seekonk and a granddaughter, Teagan. He is also survived by countless friends, who would be considered his extended family.

Visitation will be held on Thursday from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in WILLIAM W. TRIPP Funeral Home, 1008 Newport Ave., Pawtucket. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Cory's Crusaders, 45 Slater Dr., Harrisville, RI 02830 or online at https://www.coryscrusaders.org/take-action would be greatly appreciated.

I’m very sorry for your loss.
I went to grammar school with Kevin at Sacred Heart and hadn’t been in touch with him much over the years, but the last time we did see each other a few years ago we had a good conversation.
Again, I’m very sorry for your loss.

Rest In Peace Kevin. Growing up in our neighborhood or as a friend of Chris, Derek (or both) was something special and that’s a big thanks to you. We all knew we could walk in and talk whenever and about whatever throughout my childhood and beyond. Your memory will live on in not only your family but all of the friends of your children. We all have some incredible memories. Thank you Kev.

So devastated to hear this news. I grew up with Kevin as my neighbor and he always treated me like family. I was just a little girl and he would always include me in all of the festivities on the block. Even just stopping by for a while to visit my lemonade stands when he saw me sitting across the street, he’d always be sure to stop by and crack a joke to make me smile. Even as an adult, he’d visit me at work just the same. Kevin will always be one of my favorite people and will remain as a core memory from my childhood. So much love to Lisa, Derek and Chris at this time. You guys are now family to me. Kevin will always be in our hearts.

My sincere condolences to Kevin's family, friends, and to his forever brother Dan.

I spent a lot of time with Kevin in grammar school as we always sat next to each other, both our names ended in L.
I will always, always remember his kindness, wit, long hair, and warm smile. Also, how he made me laugh the years away, especially in Mr. Mcormack's class. Best year ever!

I hope that those closest to him will find peace and comfort through these difficult times, and that your tears turn into smiles when thinking of him.

God be with you all til we meet again.

In the game of life you will have friends, acquaintances, and people you know, but your true friends you can put in the palm of your hand. You were in both of mine. Our journey started at eight years old. There was no bad, no ugly, it was all great!
We were inseparable till the very end.

Kev the places we went, the laughs ( tears from our eyes) we had, and the people we met made our journey one hell of ride

If it weren’t for you my life would not have been complete.

I was blessed to have a friendship that some people never experience.

We truly were Brother’s

I love ya buddy, and you will be sorely missed.

Keep the seat warm till we meet again.
