Lyman was the welcoming committee for many a new resident to the neighborhood. His visits whether on a bike towed by two two noisy dogs or a quiet stop on his golf cart will be missed. May we all be so happy to see a neighbor or wave to stranger.

God bless.

Although it has been years since I lived in Terryville, I remember "Uncle Lyman" as a child when I was Weezie's and Mrs Lederman's next door Harwington Avenue neighbor, and later their neighbor on Preston Road. His passing brought back many found memories of those times. At 101 years, a life Well Lived!

Unfortunately I left Connecticut as a young lady and didn't have the opportunity to get to know my mother's brother's and sister as well as I would have liked. I do remember my uncle Lymon riding his bike all over the farm having so much fun. He always seems happy. He was very nice to us and help out my mom at all times

We will miss seeing him riding his golf cart down Preston Road with his dogs! We always wavd to each other as we drove by him. Last summer we drove by and I saw him sitting in his garage. I waved out the car window and he smiled and waved back. He will be missed in the neighbood. Such a friendly man! We need more like him in the world. God Bless him and may he Rest in
