Lyons receives memento
U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Tony Lyons
Eloy and Jewell Villa presented a Wilson County News cup to their son-in-law, U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Tony Lyons. The Wilson County News cup was given to Eloy by Cathy Green and Elaine Kolodziej in October when the Villas visited Floresville.
Maj. Lyons is from Baton Rouge, La., and enlisted in the Marine Corps as a private, and through hard work and study has achieved his present rank. He has a degree from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. He is a veteran of the first Gulf War and later served another tour in Iraq and a tour in Afghanistan. Maj. Lyons is the aircraft maintenance officer of Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 24.
Maj. Lyons and his wife, Stephanie, are currently stationed at Kaneohe Bay, Marine Corps Base Hawaii, and have three children, Percie, Corey, and Zoe. Percie is a junior at Kalaheo High School and was a medal winner in the Hawaii State Cross Country meet. Corey is a sophomore and will participate in the Na Koa Ali’i Hawaii All State Marching Band at the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade on Jan. 1. Zoe is in seventh grade and is a member of the Kailua Intermediate School band. Stephanie Lyons was born in Fairfax, Va., and graduated from Virginia Tech.
Jewell Villa is from Widen, W.Va., and is the daughter of a coal miner. Eloy is a Floresville native and graduated from Floresville High School in 1953 and Texas A&M in 1957. The Villas live in Williamsburg, Va., but they like to keep up with the news in Floresville with the help of the Wilson County News.
