July 24, 1982 - October 29, 2021
Derek Michael Lyons, 39, of Danvers, passed away peacefully on October 29, 2021 with his family by his side. Born in Danvers on July 24, 1982, he was the beloved son of Lisa (Moulton) Lyons, Stephen Lyons, and his stepfather, Donald Wright. He was raised and educated in Danvers and was a 2001 graduate of Danvers High School and later earned a degree from Salem State University. As a boy, Derek developed a passion for baseball, starting in Salem Little League for the Tigers and continuing in Danvers. Unknown at the time, but his dedication to the game would lead to a lifetime of friendships and happy times. His determination, passion, and sheer talent allowed him to shine, and he helped lead the Falcons to their 2001 State Championship victory as #5 at shortstop. He went on to play baseball at Dean College and Salem State College, and then continued to play league ball for Champions Pub and Trout Movers, where he had been employed in recent years. Derek’s love of sports was remarkable, but any Boston team was, of course, his team. In addition to his parents, he leaves a sister, Danielle Keenan and her boyfriend Michael Paraskoulakis and a host of family members and friends who will miss him dearly. Derek’s life will be celebrated on Saturday, November 6, 2021 from 11AM until 2PM at Danversport, 161 Elliott St., Danvers. Relatives and friends are invited to attend. In lieu of flowers, donations in Derek’s memory may be made to Danvers High School Baseball Boosters, c/o Peoples United Bank, 1 Conant St., Danvers, MA 01923. Arrangements are by C.R. Lyons & Sons Funeral Directors, 28 Elm St., Danvers Square.
