Alan “Pee Wee” Dale Lyons, 78, of Amarillo, Texas, passed away Sunday, January 22, 2023, at his home.

Private family services will be held.

Alan was born June 24, 1944, in San Antonio, Texas to Langston Lyons and Dorothy Lyons. He graduated from Amarillo high school in 1962 playing varsity shortstop for the Sandies. He eventually earned his bachelor’s degree from West Texas A&M University in 1966. Alan was a claim adjuster with many different insurance companies throughout his career while owning a trio of dry cleaners. Alan’s favorite hobbies were refereeing basketball, golfing, and especially playing softball. During tournaments, his teammates would frequently get mad at him for wanting to lose their first game in order for them to get a chance to play more games. Finally, in the later years, his time was spent watching the Houston Astros and every other sporting event available on television.

Alan is survived by his two sons, Danny Alan Lyons, and his wife, Deborah Lyons of Amarillo, Texas, and Devin Todd Lyons of Amarillo, Texas; a brother, Jerry Bryant of Amarillo, Texas; a sister, Judith Bural of Muskogee, Oklahoma; eight grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Dorothy; and his son, Darren Brent Lyons in 2010.

  1. So sorry to hear of Pee Wee passing. He was a great guy with whom I enjoyed playing with on the First Baptist softball team for many years. Being a pitcher, I could always count on Pee Wee to back me up. May you Rest in Peace my friend; you have truly earned your Heavenly Stars.

  2. Will always remember when Peewee lived with the McCaffrees. Shorty and Peewee had so much fun. The bestest of friends ( brothers from different mothers) so blessed to know him. Loved him dearly. So sorry for your loss, but I bet he and Shorty are haveing a laughing good time. May God give you a peace that surpasses all understanding.

  3. Blessings and comfort to the family of Pee Wee. I have many great memories of playing slow pitch softball with him under the sponsorship of Boxwell Brothers. Although he was the age of my oldest brother, I got to play with them as the kid on the team.

  4. So very sorry to hear this! What memories our families made on Kileen! I find picturs of us all the time! Prayers sent for all of you!❤️
