July 29, 2002

Daniel J. Lyons III, a retired Bell Atlantic employee, died Tuesday of Lewy body disease, a degenerative neurological ailment, at St. Elizabeth Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Southwest Baltimore. The Cambridge resident was 60.

He retired in 1999 from Bell Atlantic after 39 years as a pay phone coin collector in Baltimore, and later on the Eastern Shore, where he moved in 1982.

Born in Baltimore and raised in Edmondson Village and Gwynn Oak, he was a 1960 graduate of Milford Mill High School.

Family members said he was an avid sports fan, and had a perfect attendance record at Colts home games in the 1950s and 1960s.

A Mass was offered Saturday at St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church, where he was an usher.

He is survived by three sisters, Helen Bopp and Beth Curley, both of Catonsville, and Ruth Kellermann of Ellicott City; and nephews and nieces.
