John Charles Lyon
Mr. John Charles Lyon, son of the late Harold and Charlaine Bleckley, was born on June 2, 1942 in Woodward, Oklahoma. He attended the public schools of Woodward and was a graduate of Woodward High School in 1959. At an early age, he attended Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church where he was baptized and a dedicated member.

He was united in holy matrimony to Angie Raye Moore on August 4th, 1978. This union was blessed with two children.

John enjoyed fishing, bowling, cards and shooting sports. He was very active in his community helping with numerous Hopkins Thanksgiving dinners as well as various food drives.

John retired with honors after 31 years in the Army National Guard and 28 years of service for the State of Oklahoma. After his retirement he helped his friends at Leroy's Ready Mix and Zirby Enterprises.

John and I worked together many years. He was always fun to work with and was so good to our clients. They could sweet talk him into doing about anything

Dustin and Dacia, I knew John as Lee's little brother and a really nice little kid, and years later as a fine man. You can be very proud of him. Not everyone has a father as loving as your pop.

I am going to miss my life long friend and fellow soldier. John had one of the biggest hearts of anyone I have ever known. If you were his friend, it would be for a lifetime. I cherish the times we shared together in school and as members of the Oklahoma Army National Guard. Rest in peace Soldier!!

John was a great man and had a bigger heart. Many years ago John was a member of my Sunday school class. You could always count on John for wise words. I remember once, we were talking about, should you make you kids go to Church? John said, “you make them get up and go to school don’t you?, I believe church is just as important.” His words were words of wisdom. John was a fine man and I loved being in his presence. He will be missed. Prayers for the family. You were blessed.
