He passed away Sunday at the age of 59, according to 14News.
Lyons had worked at AC WIKY in Evansville for nearly 31 years.
His golfing partner and former co-worker, Joe Blair, was shocked to find Lyons in his home this weekend. “We golfed every week for maybe seven years,” Blair said.
Lyons and Blair worked together for 20 years on the morning drive.
The two became close after Lyons lost his wife and step daughter to suicide.
“Looked like he had passed in his sleep,” Blair said. Even though Lyons had said he wasn't feeling well, he gave no indication of anything severe. “The doctor, apparently, gave him a clean bill of health this past weekend,” according to Blair.
