He possessed a strong character which made him such a good businessman. He was very respected and well liked. We will surely miss him.

  10. My memories span back to 1958 when I first met Louise, Johnny, Lynda, Jimmy and Harry. I was 6. Boys like Harry surely made an impression on a girl my age. He was kind, smart, loving protective and just like a brother to me. I hate I missed so many years of his life as an adult but loved him then and am sending prayers to his family and friends during this time of such a sad loss.

  21. Dear Carol…we are so sorry for the lost of your beloved Harry. Please know that we are thinking about you at this sad time and praying that our Heavenly Father is holding you and your family extra close…

  22. The propane industry has lost a tremendous supporter. His handshake, his strong voice and his great smile will be missed by all of those of us that called him a friend for more than 30 years. I know his family will miss a great dad and husband. Harry cast a big shadow and he will never be forgotten and I hope he is already looking down on us with a nice cold libation in hand, after a great scuba dive with a great group of his ole buddies that have gone before him. I know they are making plans to save us a spot in the future at the propane bar in the sky. The propane world is a safer place because of the great works of our friend Harry!

  23. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. We love you guys and we will miss Harry.

  24. I am saddened again with the loss of another of our Brothers. Harry was a wonderful friend and I will miss him as I know his family will. My heart goes out to each member of his family. Take care ol’ friend. Ella Vivo !

Being your next door neighbor for 34 yrs. and knowing Harry, Carol and Family for over 43 yrs., he will be missed by us so much, but all the good memories shall live in our hearts untill “death do we part”. Life on earth is so short and we all should spend more time staying in contact with our friends and family . May God bring peace with the Lyon’s family during this time of sorrow. May all of our hearts be as large as Harry’s. His friendship will never be forgotten. love to all , Lois and Jim Walker
