BORN IN 1893
Mr. Lyon was born Nov. 21, 1893 near Curlew, and was 51 years old at the time of his death. He lived on a farm near Curlew for many years, later moving to a farm near Ayrshire.

Lyon, Ida L. Grace and Vern F. Lyon, all of Curlew. Mr. Lyon was preceded in death by his parents, a brother and a sister.
The tragic event which caused his death happened as Mr. Lyon was training a young saddle horse at his farm. At first the extent of his injuries was not known and he was rushed to the hospital for emergency treatment. His death followed after two days there. A township committeeman for the Triple-A program, Mr. Lyon was a sincere booster for the farmer and he gave generously of his time and efforts to promote agricultural progress.
He was well-liked by his neighbors in the county, who regard his untimely death as a personal loss among them. He was a friend on whom they depended and he was one of Palo Alto county's popular citizens, contributing much to the community in which he lived.
To his family and other relatives, sincere sympathy is offered in his death.
