Lyndon was born in Hartford, Connecticut January 11, 1958. He graduated from Putnam City West and proceeded to get his Masters in MIS. He met his wife, Susie Krieger, and proceeded to have 28 wonderful years of marriage.
He was a friend to everyone he met. There wasn’t a day that went by that he didn’t see someone he met or had to go say hi to. He was always there to talk or give you that smile that you just knew meant he was up to some mischief, but he was so joyful you didn’t care. He was the best Husband, Dad, and Friend anyone could have, and we will miss him every day that goes by.
He is preceded in death by his cats, Freckles and Gracie, who are by now sitting on top of him in heaven and refusing to let him move, while his bird Condor is drinking beer from his cup and eating all his Cheetos.
He is survived by his wife, Susie Dees; his parents Jack Dees and Marjorie Crawford, as well as his stepmom Nancy Dees; his sister Leah-Anne (Kenny) Janway; his nephew Matt Janway; and his children, Brandon and Tyler Dees, and Jessi Dees; as well as many distant cousins and all the friends he considered family and his much-loved cat, Captain Morgan.
