Master Rickey Rydell “Boobie” Lyons III, 3, of Atmore, entered his angelic mansion on Thurs., Oct. 31, 2019, in Atmore.

“Boobie,”  as we called by his family and friends, entered his earthly journey on Dec. 22, 2015, and in his 3 years, 10 months and 9 days of life, he impacted many lives. His family would best describe him as a very happy baby, an awesome kid and an amazing young man. As he played and enjoyed the joys of being a boy, he found excitement in the PAW Patrol, Superman and Ninja Turtles. He attended Lil Angels Daycare Center.

Those whom he joins in heaven are his paternal grandmother, Krishandra Lyons; his paternal great-grandmother, Josie Mae Lyons; paternal great-grandfather, Elijah (Johnny) Lyons; and other family members.
