David L. Lyon, 51, of Elkhart, passed away on Monday, January 17, 2022 at Elkhart General Hospital after a brief illness.

He was born June 3, 1970 in Elkhart to the late Larry and Patricia (Doepker) Lyon.

David was employed by Tuscany Motor Coach as an accountant.  He was a graduate of Indiana University, a member of the Michiana Jeep Club and enjoyed both tasting and collecting bourbon.  He loved his great dane and tolerated the cats in his house.  Most of all, Dave loved family game nights!  It was a chance for his kids to relax and be themselves.
