A man named Patrick

This is the obituary that was made to make known the death of Patrick Lyons

"Denmark man killed in war



Denmark-Pfc. Patrick Lyons, 19, of Rt. 1, Denmark, was killed Tuesday in Vietnam, near the Cambodian border, according to a telegram received Thursday evening by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Francis Lyons, from the War Department. The message said that Lyons was on a combat operation, Feb 28, when hit by a hostile small arms fire that caused his death. He was with Co. D. of the First Infantry battalion of the U.S. Army. Pfc. Lyons had been home on a holiday furlough and had been in Vietnam since January. He was born May 2, 1947, at Cooperstown, son of Francis and Mabel Heiser Lyons. He was graduated in 1961 from St. James Parochial School, Cooperstown, and Denmark High School in 1965. He worked for Joequin Construction Co., Green Bay, after his graduation and entered the U.S. Army Aug 15, 1966 He took his basic training at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., after which he was transferred to Fort Polk, La.

Funeral arrangements will be announced by DeWane Funeral Home, Denmark, after the body arrives in the United States."

Patrick Lyons was an ordinary man. He did not deserve to die, but he gave it willingly for the country and the people he loved. His name should never be taken in vain.

A Man In Service of His Country

I would like to thank Mr. Lyons for sacraficing his life in the service of his country. Patrick made the ultimate sacrafice while on a search and destroy mission. One item I will remember while reading information about Patrick if how his company found over 60 tons of rice in one day. When you just take a second to think about it, that's a lot of rice! You are not forgotten.
