Lyon, Eric --

On Tuesday, May 19th, Eric Lyon passed away at home with his family at his side. Eric will be lovingly remembered by his wife Jennifer Lyon, son Adrian Lyon, daughter Sarah Lyon (James McNicoll) and granddaughter Alethea Lyon-McNicoll. He will also be remembered by his cousin Jennifer Young (Jack) and family as well as many extended family members and friends in Canada, the U.K. and Greece. Eric is predeceased by his mother Chrysoula Lyon.

Eric’s tenacity and quest for his dreams encouraged us to be our best and reach our own potential. He was full of heart and compassion for everyone he encountered. He has shown great courage in the past year in dealing with his illness, continuing to pursue his interests and enjoying time with his granddaughter. Even though he will be greatly missed, we will continue to try and fulfill his dreams with love and fond memories.

No funeral will be held but donations to Prostate Cancer Canada or a charity of your choice (having meaning for you) would be appreciated in order to honour Eric’s passing.

My thoughts are with you Jennifer, Adrian and Sarah. I was thinking to call your Dad a few weeks ago. We last spoke just before Christmas if I recall. I vividly remember sitting in my car at a mall in Mississauga and calling to catch up. He then advised me he was ill. My thoughts have been with him since. I will miss Eric as a hard working full of energy co-worker at Harbourfront Centre and a friend. We spent many years together working on the Toronto waterfront - working on our mutual passion for the water and sailing. I always enjoyed speaking with him and learning from him. He was amazing always making connections and coming up with new ideas and directions. He knew so many people and had done so much. He was always passionate and enjoyed sharing his stories and many memories. It was a pleasure to know him. I will very much miss our conversations but will think of him and yourselves often. Best wishes. Craig Weekes - Manager of Marine Operations - Harbourfront Centre

Dear Jennifer and Family... Eric and Charles St in Guelph... Eric was my Mom's best friend in the late 90's and early 2000's. They shared common greek roots and liking for strong coffee. I spent a summer in Guelph watch them have their chats and giggles...the 10 and 12 charles street connection. Eric was a fun and sturdy and caring. Eric and Jennifer attend our wedding and we still use the stone vase ( sturdy, and caring gift as well) and when Eric was at my mom' s funeral. He gave me a big hug and we cried... sobbed really. It was a special moment, a healing moment. I wish that same healing for his family now and know that his memory is enternal. -Dr. Greg German, charlottetown PEI
