"Jim was born in Beckley, West Virginia, on December 2, 1924. He was the fifth child out of nine born to Winnie Hobart Cook Lyons and John Arley Lyons. He spent his early years growing up in coal camps in southern West Virginia, particularly Hot Coal, Wyco, and Tams. His family finally moved to MacArthur (outside Beckley), where he lived until joining the Army in 1943.

Upon returning to Beckley after World War II, Jim married Marjorie Doreen Box, whom he had met in school at Woodrow Wilson High School. He and Doreen were married on September 21, 1946, at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Beckley.

Jim attended school at Concord College in Athens, West Virginia, as well as Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. He and Doreen moved from Georgia to Lexington, Virginia, where Jim attended and graduated from Washington & Lee University with a law degree in 1951.

After graduation, Jim and Doreen moved to Pineville, West Virginia, where Jim began his law practice. During Jim's career in law, he served in many capacities in the judicial system. He was an assistant prosecuting attorney, mental health commissioner, and divorce commissioner at the local level. He also served on the Worker's Compensation Appeal Board of West Virginia, and was a justice for the state's Court of Claims before his retirement in 1990.

Doreen, a registered nurse, worked in Pineville for a general practitioner and obstetrician, as well as at an area hospital before becoming a County Health Nurse. She retired in 1990 after twenty-seven years with the Wyoming County Health Department.

While living in Pineville, Jim and Doreen were actively involved in many civic, professional, and social organizations. They were also active members of the First United Methodist Church.

Doreen tries to find time to read, quilt, cross-stitch, paint, and weave baskets when Jim doesn't have her "helping" him putter around. They are both active members of their Church, and they enjoy spending time with their friends and family."

He married Janet Nila Hylton, daughter of Ernest Clarence Hylton and Nila Marie Angle, on April 29, 1955 in MacArthur, Raleigh Co., WV. He died on November 20, 1994 in Sebring, Highlands Co, FL, at age 66.

"He was the 6th child born to John Arley and Winnie H. Cook Lyons. His father was a bookkeeper for the coal company and they lived in a house furnished by the coal company. It was a fine brick home. The family moved to MacArthur when George was a young boy.

All of the boys went to the war (World War II) and it was a very trying time for the mother and father to endure as they had to watch each of them leave. George joined the US Air Force on October 16, 1945 and served until October 5, 1948. He had not graduated from high school when he went in the service but he was given his diploma from Woodrow Wilson High School in Beckley when he returned.

He joined the US Army on December 2, 1949 and was serving in Korea when the Korean war broke out. He served in the army until December 1, 1952. He returned and was in the West Virginia Air National Guard from October 28, 1953 until June 1, 1954. He had been attending college and working at different jobs during this period.

On June 2, 1954, he went to work for the West Virginia Air National Guard in Charleston as an airplane mechanic. He also, at that time, continued to attend Morris Harvey College in Charleston. In September 1954 he met Janet Hylton at the skating rink in MacArthur, WV and they were married on April 29, 1955. He continued to work at the airport in Charleston until September of 1955 when he resigned and George and Janet moved to Macon, GA where George attended Mercer University taking pre-law. However, in January of 1956 Janet found she was pregnant and at that time women didn't work very long when they were pregnant. George quit school and they returned to Beckley where George worked at different jobs until September 8, 1956.

In September, 1956 George went to work for the West Virginia Air National Guard. Daniel Wayne was born on October 9, 1956. George worked as an airplane mechanic for several years and then he became a supervisor of the line crew.

On October 17, 1961 James Todd was born. In March 1963 George and Janet bought their house which is where they have resided since. On February 10, 1966 Ronald Duane Lyons was born.

George continued to work at the Air National Guard as a training supervisor until December of 1983 when he retired from full time work, but he had been appointed the Chief Enlisted Advisor for the state of West Virginia. He was to serve as an advisor from the enlisted men to the Adjutant General of the state. This was to be a part time duty and he was sworn in on January 3, 1984. On February 22, 1984 George had a serious heart attack and on March 22, 1984 he had quadruple bypass surgery. He did very well after the surgery but was unable to pass the physical that the Air Force required so he was forced to resign his position.

George loved his family and he was always involved in the activities of the boys. He also loved to work on the house and the cars and was always starting new projects. In 1980 he built a 2 car garage in the back yard and after his heart attack he made a family room out of the garage that he had added to the house in 1965. It became the favorite room in the house.

Janet had worked as a telephone operator before she married George but she resigned so she could go to Georgia with George in 1955. She stayed home and kept the boys until 1967 when she returned to the telephone company to work again. She worked as an operator for several years when she transferred to the plant department and became a repair clerk. She worked at this job until the company began to go to computers and the job title was changed to maintenance administrator. This really meant that the phone lines were all tested for trouble by computer. She continued to work for the phone company until she retired in April of 1992.

In 1990 they bought a lot in Florida in hopes of having a winter home there. In February of 1991 they spent their first night in their new home. They continued to go as often as possible and stay as long as they could. Since Janet was not retired yet, their time was limited for the first couple of years. Then on October 18th of 1994 they rode the auto train to Florida and planned to stay until December 1st, when they would go back home to spend Christmas with their family. On November 20, 1994 they went to early church and came back home and George went to the flea market to get grapefruit and then he came back home and said he was going to wash the car. He went out to do that and in a few minutes he came in and he sat down at the table and he said he didn't feel real well. In a couple of minutes his head dropped forward and his hands dropped to his side and he said "Oh Janet" and he was gone. He had lived a very good and active life and if he could have chosen, Janet feels sure that would have been the way he would have chosen to go. He is buried in West Virginia.

Janet continues to live in the home they purchased in 1963. She does some volunteer work for her church. She enjoys her friends and the family which consists of the three sons and daughters in law and the seven grandchildren. They all live close and visit frequently."

The following is Louis' autobiography:

Louis was the nineth and youngest son born to John A. and Winnie Cook Lyons at Hot Coal, Raleigh County, West Virginia. He attended schools in Raleigh County and Beckley. On Oct 24, 1950, his seventeenth birthday, he enlisted in the US Army. He arrived at the 24th Infantry Division north of Seoul Korea, at the age of 17 years and 4 months old. He was one of the youngest American soldiers in Korea at that time. During his last few months of duty in Korea he was assigned to the 17th Field Artillery, known as the Persuaders because of their 8" Howitzers that wrecked havoc on the North Koreans and Chinese. After 10 years of service he was discharged in 1960.

Louis was a country music diskjockey for eight years in Charleston, WV. He, then, spent the next twenty-five years in the funeral business in Florida, before leaving to become a representative of a national manufacturer of embalming fluid.

On May 11, 1963 he married Amelia Danello. They had one daughter Susan. He had five grandchildren. During the 1990's, he lived in Grain Valley, Jackson County, Missouri, where he was a City Alderman. Louis' hobby was politics. He researched the life of President Harry Truman, from President Truman's birth in Lamar, Missouri to his death in 1972 in Independence, MO and the Jackson Democratic Club with Tom Pendergast that propelled the man from Missouri to the highest office in this land.

Louis was a 100% disabled veteran of the Korean War, and a lifetime member of the DAV and VFW. Late in life, he lived in Princeton, WV, moving there to care for his sister, Emma, who is in a nursing home from a stroke that left her paralyzed on one side and damaged her brain.

Louis had moved to Iowa just weeks before his death.
