William A. "Bill" Lyons, 84, of Enfield, passed away peacefully at home, Thursday, March 19, 2020. The son of the late Alan and Lutrecia (Stimpson) Lyons, Bill was born and raised in Hartford, and lived in the Enfield community for most of his life. He was a member of Teamsters Local 559, employed in trucking and construction for many years, including driving for Esquire Gas Co. of Enfield for 27 years and ending his career with Della Construction. Bill enjoyed spending time outdoors, cutting wood, mowing in the summer and plowing snow in the winter. He will be missed by his good friends from the AMVETS, the Grey's Club, and those at the Whole Donut who were well known for not only drinking copious amounts of coffee, but also solving the world's problems.
He leaves behind a step-son Nick Mitton and his girlfriend Mary Mitchell, a step-daughter Susie Mitton Shannon and her husband Randy Shannon, along with his beloved grandchildren. He is also survived by six children, Jodi Rousakis, Holly Levins, Randy Lyons, Keith Lyons, Kevin Lyons, and Terri Lyons. He was predeceased by Jane, his wife of over 40 years, his brother Sonny, his sister Joyce, two children Billy and Debbie, and three step-children Linda, Joe and Skippy. Bill also leaves behind his best friend, his beloved dog Coco.

I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your Stepdad, Bill. I didn't know him for long, but he alway had a good corny joke to tell and an incessant smile to share, especially when walking his dog up to your house. I do know he loved your Mum by the sweet but serious way he spoke of her, and remember how proud he was of her, when you two got her first rental house together. I was always made to feel welcome in their home, as they were such kind people. I remember Bill's great surprise in learning that, as a rural letter carrier sub with a son in college, I was averaging 62 postal hours a week plus working a second job on Sundays. He ran like the devil to go tell your Mum, yelling excitedly back over his shoulder to me that "Oh, she'll like you! She'll really like you!" He was a sweet, funny guy.
Irish proverb-
'May you live long,
die happy,
and rate a mansion in heaven.'
May he rest in peace.

Deepest condolences on the loss of your father. He was always so kind and eager to lend a hand. He will most certainly be missed by all who knew him.

I always looked forward to Bill and Janes weekend visits to 15 Duprey. It was always good spirits, great conversation, loud laughing and dancing. Great times always.

God Bless
