– Edward Lyons, 56, passed away peacefully at home on November 24,
2020. He is the son of Joanne Lowe and the late Thomas W. Lyons.
Ed attended Warren, Washington and Albany Counties ARC Day
Habilitation Program in Slingerlands for many years while residing
blind and liked to be in his own secure and comfortable space,
however he made connections with many over the years. Ed enjoyed
activities such as listening to music or the TV, sitting on the back
deck, going for a walk or ride, playing with his electronic
keyboard, going out to eat, speaking his thoughts out loud, and he
surely liked when the staff would talk and joke around with him. He
had an infectious smile and laugh. Ed also had a determined nature
and he creatively made his desires known to others.
Survivors include his mother, Joanne Lowe; sister, Sharon (Daniel)
Carson; niece, Stephanie Zimmer; nephew, Daniel Carson, Jr.; several
aunts and uncles; and the devoted staff and caregivers that cared
for him over the years. He will be missed and remembered by all who
mother expressed that now he can rest peacefully and celebrate with
the angels and that he fought a good fight like a warrior and now he
is released from the battlefield with no more pain or suffering.
Lastly, she also expressed immense gratitude for all the caring
people that ever worked with Ed over the years.

home. Friends are invited to attend a graveside service at 12 noon
