Jim Lyons passes on to that big basketball court in the sky!
Anymore I just cringe when looking at the obits. Too many people I have crossed paths with seem to be leaving us. James Lyon was a big headed, light footed around 6'6" former basketball player and a dead eye long ball shooter. He played basketball for the Wolfpack of the University of Reno. He had great three point range before shooting from that distance counted for anything but 2 points. He was a fixture at many local basketball games. He was in his 60's when he played for Samoa Athletic Club. I enjoyed his views on politics and even his rants on Cal Trans engineering deficiencies. May he rest in peace.
