FMHA was saddened by the death of Dan Lyons, a long standing and energetic Member of the FMHA Board.
Dan passed away peacefully at home on November 5 2016. Dan’s interest in Fort Miles stemmed from his service in the United States Air Force, where he served as a Transportation Officer. Following his military service, Dan had a long and successful career in the transportation and logistics industry.
At the same time, as a result of developing an interest in volunteer fire service while attending the University of Maryland, Dan served with the Bethany Beach Volunteer Fire Company.
Dan assisted with the development of the Fort Miles Museum during its infancy and contributed to the implementation and completion of the Wall of Honor that is an integral part of the Museum. FMHA extends sympathy to Peggy, Dan’s wife of 63 years, and to all other members of his family. Dan will be missed.
