Trevor Lyon - Chorley Rural 41 Club


Although not a founder member of Chorley District RT 1248 he was an early recruit who quickly became a large presence in the club in every way. He only had a few years in the Round Table before the age rule despatched him into Chorley Rural 41 Club of which he was Chairman in 1992-93. Trevor was forever enthusiastic both in his work as a successful Financial Adviser and socially as a welcome host, companion, performer and entertainer. His love of the Shadows was renowned and this gave him unparalleled joy when he played their music, though at times he appeared more like a ’Demis Roussos’ character than Hank Marvin. Always a good companion he had stories to tell at the many dinners he attended within area, or were they jokes? It was very hard to tell. Unfortunately, his home life was varied and colourfuland his health somewhat unsound such that he retired early from his business and eventually moved South to start anew. A brave man to master those challenges that life threw at him, he remained warm hearted. Eventually this gave out on him in the end.
