Memories Timeline


  1. I was sorry to hear of Mr. Lyons passing. Mr. Lyons was a great neighbor, and a terrific friend. I always enjoyed talking with Mr. Lyons.
    Mr. Lyons was a brilliant man, and at the age of 90 he was as they say as sharp as a tack. Sometimes people wonder if they made a difference, well Mr. Lyons did made a big difference to me. I will miss Mr. Lyons, and I hope his Buffalo Bills win a Super Bowl for him.

  2. Duane was my coworker, mentor, friend, confidante. Taught me more about life than about the intricacies of making acetate film base. Tremendous sense of humor. God got a great one. Rest in peace my friend.
