Lyons, Reynold C.



Reynold C. Lyons, a resident of Dedham, died on July 1, 2011 at the age of 91.  He was born in Worcester, MA to the late Joseph A. and Ethel (Guertin).  Mr. Lyons graduated from the Clarke School for the Deaf in 1937.  He was previously employed by the National Youth Administration, was a textile machine operator for the Worcester Braiding Co. , an assembler for Warren Leather Goods Co. and an electronics printed circuit operator with Techron Corp.

    Mrs. Lyons, I have so many memories of your huband’s sunny, funny and loveable presence over the years — at our house in W. Peabody and on the Cape, and at various Deaf Club functions and trips. What a fantastic man he was and I was always smiling whenever I was around him. You were lucky to have had 52 years together. Wishing you peace and good memories in this sad time of his passing. Love and Hugs, Missy Gilmartin Patrick and family (Doug, Owen and Atticus)

    Dear families of Rennie Lyons,

    I’m passing on my condolences. Rennie was a legacy and lived a life that ought to be emulated by others. Because Rennie was such an inspiration to all who knew him, his character holds rare virtues of respect and equality for all. His smile was contagious. His spirit lives on.

    My best,

    Suzann Bedrosian

    I am so saddened to hear of Rennie’s passing but very grateful to have known him. He was one of the most special persons I have come to know here in Massachusetts. I enjoyed his great sense of humor and his company. Because of his sunny personality, I couldn’t help but smile every time I was with him. He will be sorely missed!!
    Big and warm hugs to you, Barbara!
