William C. Lyman, Bill to all who knew him and loved him, passed away on November 15, 2021, at the age of 70. He was the husband of Marsha J. Lyman (nee Hammons) with whom he shared 48 years of marriage. Bill loved his family with his whole heart and will be greatly missed. 

Bill was the oldest son of the late Bill and Barbara Lyman.

Bill enjoyed sports card collecting, wine tasting and the Jersey Shore.  He was a huge fan of NASCAR racing, the Pittsburgh sports teams, and Penn State football.  He loved classic rock music, especially the Grateful Dead. He also enjoyed playing with his grand dog, Clover, very much. 

He will be remembered for his infectious laughter and incredible sense of humor. He will also be remembered for his faithful service to his local church, Gateway Grace Community Church, helping at the café, greeting, and playing in the worship band.  He was also a member of Coatesville Moose Lodge 297.   Bill had a real zest for living life to the fullest.

In addition to his wife, Bill is survived by his son and best friend, Brian T. Lyman, husband of Kelly, and four grandchildren, Caleb, Chase, Declan, and Elliott.  He is also survived by two brothers, David J. Lyman (Pat), and Stephen B. Lyman (Cindy), and his sister-in-law, M. Jill Hammons.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday, November 28, 2021, at 1:30 pm at Gateway Grace Community Church, 160 Cowan Road, Parkesburg, PA. 

Interment will be private with the family.
