Cedar Rapids

Dave Lyman, 60, of Cedar Rapids, died Sunday, Oct. 18, 2020, at UnityPoint-St. Luke's Hospital.
Dave was born on May 20, 1960, in Cedar Rapids, the son of Gary and Joy Lyman. He lived in Cedar Rapids most of his life and graduated from Washington High School in 1978. He was united in marriage to Candyce Smith on Oct. 14, 2000. He worked as a telecommunications analyst for Kirkwood Community College.
Those who knew Dave were well-acquainted with his subtle sense of humor, how he loved to laugh and wasn't beyond the occasional prank. Dave cared deeply for those around him and was a great husband, son, big brother and friend. Throughout his life, Dave had a passion for fishing and the outdoors and was a longtime member and one-time president of the Cedar Rapids Bassmasters and member of Izaak Walton League. Dave also had a passion for music and played in a local band, and marched with the Emerald Knights and Lacrosse Blue Stars Drum and Bugle Corps during his younger years.
Dave was preceded in death by his grandparents, Carl and Ruth Lyman and Vern and Carmen Westphal. Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Candyce Lyman; mother and father, Joy and Gary Lyman; brother, Mitch (Tamara) Lyman; nephew and niece, Brendon and Madison Lyman; sister-in-law, Patti Smith; brothers-in-law, James Stafford and Lorin (Lani) Smith; aunt and uncle, Mimi (Ken) Lindberg; uncle, Michael Lyman; and cousins, Erik (Jane) Lindberg and Kristin (Simon) Wilks.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
