In Memoriam: Jim Hanson and Hal Lyon

In Memoriam: Jim Hanson and Hal Lyon

It is with the deepest sadness that the St. John’s on-the Lake community mourns the loss of our two beloved friends and compatriots, Jim Hanson and Hal Lyon. Their wisdom, their kindness, their help, indeed their mere presence will be sorely missed. Their loss has created a void that will linger for a very long time. The improbability of the tragedy, the simultaneous deaths of these two great friends on the lake they loved so much, will long send tremors and aftershocks through all who knew them. The entire community sends its sincerest prayers of condolence to the families and friends of these two remarkable men. May we find our own solace in the many personal and fond memories we have of them. And may we forever bask in the recollections of their joyful spirits and the grace with which they moved so easily among us. They were givers and helpers at heart, and we all truly benefited from having the pleasure of their company for as long as we did. May they rest in peace. Amen.
