Goodbye Skip

The old car hobby lost another good friend over the weekend. Ronald “Skip” Lyons passed away Saturday, December 27, at Genesis East Medical Center. He was 76 years old. We knew Skip, and often seen him and his lovely wife Ruth at different car shows and cruises. He always had his ’38 Buick looking perfect.

Skip was a member VFW, NRA, American Legion, the Buick Club of America, the Free Masons, the Milan Rifle Club, and a retired teamster.

I also worked on their home. It started when I built them a carport for his Buick. I later built them an enclosed porch which they both really liked. He will be missed; but we hear there aren’t any potholes in heaven. Our sincere condolences to Ruth and the family. If you need anything at all, don’t be afraid to call.

Comments are always welcome.

    What is the $9,200,000.00 flood project for the riverfront that the City of Davenport has asked the Feds for as part of the stimulus funding?

    I don’t think so. Cennential Park.

    Is that the removable flood wall that’s been talked about?

    Flood protection of the downtown area is not economicaly fesable. It’s a dead issue.
