John Lyon

 

In Memory: John Lyon – It is with deep regret that Keystone Opportunity Center announces the death of Board Member, Interim Executive Director, and long time volunteer, John Lyon, on December 9, 2020.

John Lyon was one of Keystone’s longest serving volunteers. During his career in the insurance industry, John joined the Board of Directors in the 1990s. When the Indian Valley Opportunity Center (IVOC, founded in 1970) and the Indian Valley Housing Corporation (IVHC founded in 1990) merged in 2009, John Lyon stayed on the Board of the newly merged Keystone Opportunity Center. After the passing of former Executive Director E. Richard Aichele III, John Lyon stepped into the position of Interim Executive Director. Since then, John played a role as a volunteer staff person, coming to the office regularly to assist with administrative work.

In addition to his work on the Board of Directors, John regularly assisted as a Community Ambassador, informing the community of the incredible work of Keystone Opportunity Center.

John will forever be missed by many in the community.

The entire Keystone organization extends it sympathy to his family and many friends. Please read the tributes and memories of those who knew John. They are included below.
