Jay Lyons, Jr.

Jay David Lyons, Jr., 74, died Friday, March 9, 2018 at his home in Troy. He was born on Dec. 31, 1943 in Bonners Ferry, Idaho to Jay Sr. and Margaret (Zimmerman) Lyons. He graduated from Troy High School in 1962.

Jay married Patricia Tiegen at Troy on Jan. 12, 1963. He was a logger for the J. Neils Lumber Co., and worked from 1970 to 1980 for Westmont Tractor, and later for Long Machinery. He retired from Bridger Coal Co. in Rock Springs, Wyoming in 1998. He owned Adams RV in Green River, Wyoming with his wife Patricia until they came back home to Troy in 2005.

Jay was a great lover of outdoor recreation including camping, fishing, hunting, snowmobiles and dirt biking. He also enjoyed cutting wood and was an avid baseball fan and reader. He was generous to a fault and would give the shirt off his back if needed.

Survivors include his wife, Patricia, of Troy; children Jay David Lyons III (Debbee) of Usk, Washington, Joel Ross Lyons of Nampa, Idaho, and Michele E. Harris (Dale) of Green River, Wyoming; siblings John Lyons and Nancy Giles; grandchildren Ryan David Lyons, Kelsey Marie Lyons, Joel Ross Lyons, Jr., Andrew D. Harris and Amanda K. Harris; and nieces Melinda Thompson and Marzell “Gumps” Van Vlaenderen.

Rosary will be held at 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 14, 2018 with funeral mass at 10:30 a.m., Thursday, March 15, 2018 at the Immaculate Conception Church in Troy.

Arrangements are by Schnackenberg & Nelson Funeral Home in Libby. Condolences and memories may be shared at www.schnackenbergfh.com.
