Dave Lyon on Facebook, 9/19/20: God needed a head lining act in heaven and tonight David got the call. He’ll be going on tour with all your favorite angels. His tour to heaven began peacefully this evening surrounded by his family. He fought f’cking cancer with every fiber of his being without ever losing his sense of humor. We will all miss David while he’s on eternal tour but his latest album will be available soon called “Black Pearl”
Stephanie Anderson: The Angels are so lucky to have this amazing man. You will be so missed. My life will always be better for you being in it. The best teachers truly inspire and this is how he will be remembered.
Charmaine Garcia: Reading this just hurts my heart ?? I will always remember you, Mr. Lyon. I’m so glad I got to share with you the huge impact you had on me in high school. Rest in paradise, my friend. Until we meet again…
