Gerry Lyons left us on October 17, 2020.
Gerry was a U.S. Army veteran with tours in Korea, Vietnam, Italy and Germany as well as Fort Dix, Fort Meade and Fort Knox. He was a graduate of the University of Louisville.  
Gerry found Ol’ Tex, his 1937 Harley, in 1970 and traded his Kawasaki with turn signals for the machine that was his lifelong project.  
Gerry was proud of his children: Ken Lyons (Trista); Tasha Wyatt (Jeremiah); Chris Ford (Rachel); Elena Wahl (David); Drew Ford (Lisa) and their children.
Gerry’s wife Lisa and border collie Spot have many happy memories.
