Worshipful Archibald William "Archie" Lyon devotes his life to service. He served his country proudly in the United States Army for 36 years during both World War II and Korea attaining the rank of Brigadier General. During Wor. Bro. Lyon's 51 years in Freemasonry, he served as Worshipful Master of Alexandria-Washington Lodge, Scottish Rite 33šI.G.H., Past National President of National Sojourners, and Past Commander of the Heroes of '76.
Everyone who knew Wor. Bro. Lyon, felt his pride for the Collingwood Library and Museum on Americanism of which he was the Founding Director and Past President. For it was in this endeavor that he was able to combine his love for the United States of America and Masonry.
Wor. Bro. Lyon never missed an opportunity to give the 'Toast to the Flag' at Lodge Installations or other functions or service in any manner which he could be of assistance.
We will miss the kindness and patriotism which Wor. Bro. Lyon so gently displayed.
