William J. Lyons, Jr.


Former State Senator, WWII Veteran

 

William J. (Bill) Lyons, Jr., 92, departed the world on April 11, 2014, with family at his side.

He was born in Norwalk in 1921, the son of the late William J. Lyons, Sr. and Mary B. Lyons.  He was the husband of the late Patricia R. Lyons for 50 years.  A graduate of Oratory Preparatory School in Summit, NJ, he attended Notre Dame University until enlisting in the U.S. Army in 1943.  He served in Europe with the Third Army commanded by George Patton, fighting in the Battle of the Bulge and serving as Military Police Chief in the German city of Regensburg (Pop. 135,000) from August, 1945 to March, 1946, at the age of 24.  He remained in the Army Reserve after the war, leaving the Army in 1955 with the rank of 2nd Lieutenant.

He returned to Norwalk where he became President of Lyons Construction Company, which had been founded in 1920 by his father.  Lyons Construction built many well-known structures in town, including both of Norwalk’s post offices, buildings at Norwalk Hospital, Naramake School, a major expansion of Nathan Hale Middle School, and St. Thomas Church.   Lyons later became General Manager of the Third District Electric Department, upgrading the system and establishing its reputation as the part of Norwalk that doesn’t lose power in storms.

He was long active in Norwalk politics and government.  He served as a Third Taxing District Commissioner, served two terms in the State House of Representatives (representing East Norwalk) and a term representing Norwalk and Darien in the State Senate.  He later served as Chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission.

Bill is survived by his brother John F. Lyons of Hobe Sound, Florida, and by his children Michael W. Lyons and his wife Elizabeth of Norwalk, Barbara L. Moseley and her husband Kevin of Spring Hill, Florida, Timothy R. Lyons of Norwalk, Edward J. Lyons and his wife Lizabeth of Palm Harbor, Florida, and Susan M. Lyons of Medfield, Massachusetts, as well as by his grandchildren Erin and Michael Moseley, Cassandra, Michael and Caroline Shortsleeve, James, Claire and Krystina Lyons, and Joseph Lyons.  He was predeceased by his sister Mary B. Grinnan and brother Thomas R. Lyons.

His family will receive friends on Thursday, April 24, from 5 – 7 p.m. at Collins Funeral Home, 92 East Avenue, Norwalk.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, April 25, at 10:00 a.m. at St. Thomas the Apostle Church, 203 East Avenue, Norwalk.  Internment with full military honors will follow at St. John Cemetery, 223 Richards Avenue, Norwalk.

  1. Condolences to the Lyons Family. We were honored to know Bill.
    May his time with our Lord be comfort to those on earth who loved him.

  • Few people have made as long or as lasting an impact on my life as Bill Lyons, from the time I was old enough to comprehend what any notion of civic engagement was. If I’ve had any impact in the public arena myself, and I know it’s small, it’s because he taught me the ropes which began with listening. I wrote a paper about him in elementary school— 4th, 5th or 6th grade, perhaps, entitled The Ombudsman. The paper and the term had direct reference to his investigation of a rodent infestation at a home nearby the Hat Factory in East Norwalk. I will never forget the picture of him standing on the porch of the home holding a rat by its tale. I might have even been there when it was taken. The image never left me, nor did the lesson. Where there’s injustice, pursue it and deal with it. I’ll also never forget the T-Bird, and the two-way radios. I thought those were the next best thing to the NASA space program. And I’ll never forget campaigning in front of Marvin School as a kid, waiting for the polls to count, and watching the votes come in. Most of all, I’m thankful for a man who believed in me, who gave me more than my fair share of encouragement and wise counsel, who mentored me in public service and whose door— home or office— was always open. God bless the entire Lyons family in the wake of Bill’s departure. He was larger than life and will never be forgotten, certainly not by me.

  • To the Lyons family,
    Your Dad was one of my favorite people! I have so many wonderful childhood memories of him and the fun we had at your home. I was so lucky to correspond with him the past few years. He wrote daily letters to my mother after dad passed away, always keeping us up-to-date with the Lyons family happenings. He never ceased to amaze me with his computer skills! I can thank Uncle Bud for teaching me the ins and outs of getting onto Skype! We enjoyed many Skype conversations over the past few years! I can speak for my whole family….we will surely miss him! He always spoke about being with your mother, and my parents again….I know he is smiling down on us with them at his side! Much love to your all!

  • Again, the Lyons family is in my prayers, though I know he is in the loving care of our Lord Jesus Christ. The hurt is because we will miss him and he leaves a huge hole in our hearts; however, we know he is in a better place, and we may find each other on down the road.

  • I still do miss Bill, even after five years. I miss Bob Russell as well. These gentlemen are hard to find any sort
    of “modern” generation replacement. That is the fun (?) of growing long in the tooth.
