LYONS, James Douglas, Sr.

James Douglas LYONS, Sr. age 80. Most beloved husband of Theresa (nee Polomsky). Devoted father of Elizabeth, J. Douglas, Jr. (deceased), Christopher (Melody), Erin Semenec (Craig). Cherished grandfather of Peter, Grace, Abigail, Leo (Martha), Xavier, Anastasia, Elizabeth, Lily, Lazarus, George, Lucy, Simon, Zeno, Amelia. Brother of Charles (Marilyn, deceased). Dearest friend of Janusz and Rita Zak.

Doug was a gentleman in the truest sense: loving, kind, compassionate, generous, with a ready smile for everyone. He took special delight in his grandchildren and was so very grateful as each one was born. His deep faith in Our Lord always guided his decisions. He took great joy in prayer, always having special family intentions in mind. We were blessed to have this exceptional man with us for 80 years. He leaves a void no one will ever fill. Dearest Doug, we love you and pray Our Blessed Lord will walk with you on your final journey. You are with us always.
