Lyon, Charles

Charles (Charlie) Lee Lyon, 73 of Manawa passed away unexpectedly on September 15th, 2023.

Charlie was born in Waupaca, WI on April 19th, 1950 to parents Leo and Margaret (nee Olson) Lyon. After high school, he worked in his father’s garage Lyon’s Auto, where he discovered a talent for fixing things. Charlie married Kathryn Geiger on January 20th, 1973, and they recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. His wife’s father, Gerald Geiger, and brother, Jerry Jr., were among his closest friends and went on many hunting and fishing trips together to Canada.

Charlie worked for over 30 years at the Waupaca Foundry, most recently as a R&D Foreman. He was an avid outdoorsman, a constant reader, and a talented mechanic who loved restoring classic cars. He was full of good humor and always quick with a funny story. Most of all he was a dedicated husband, father and grandfather who loved spoiling his grandkids with ATV rides, trips to the fair, and lots of ice cream.

Charlie is survived by his loving wife Kathy, son Zack (Kelly), sister Leola (Lynn) Hild, his grandchildren Lake and Ford, and other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister LaDeane, and son Joshua.
