William (Bill) T. Lyons


William (Bill) T. Lyons, 64, lost his battle with mesothelioma on Jan. 8, 2020, at a Bangor hospital.

He was born Dec. 28, 1955, in Boston, Mass., and was a graduate of Ellsworth High School.

A carpenter and drywaller by trade, and knowledgeable in auto mechanics, he was always willing to help family and friends when needed. Those who knew him appreciated his quick and dry sense of humor.

Bill enjoyed restoring vintage vehicles, boating, fishing, wintering in the Florida Keys with his dog Max and socializing with friends and family.

Bill is survived by his three sons, Joseph (Joe) Lyons, James (Jim) Lyons and fiancée Christin Gray, Kenneth Lyons and their mother, Linda Lyons; siblings Marty Lyons and wife, Ann, Steve Lyons, Patty McGinty and husband, Chuck, and Lori Gray and partner Dale Nevells; many nieces and nephews and friends.

He was predeceased by both parents, Martin P. Lyons Jr. (2000) and Lois C. (Crosby) Lyons Sitnik (2011).

As Bill preferred the warmer weather, a celebration of life gathering will be held in his memory at a date to be determined for this summer.  In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Bill’s memory to a cancer research center of your choosing.

Know when to pay your respects.
