Dale Lyons Obituary

Dale Joseph Lyons, of Marion, passed away on Friday, September 29, 2023 at Munson Healthcare Cadillac Hospital. He was 81.

Dale was born on March 20, 1942 to Elmer and Thressa (Phillips) Lyons in Garfield Township, Michigan. He proudly served in the United States Naval Reserves. On October 19, 2002 he entered into marriage with the former Carol Lemmon (Sturdavant) in Manton, Michigan. In his spare time, he could often be found out in his workshop crafting woodworking projects. He enjoyed working on computers and could build one from the ground up.
