David Lyons 411 Lake Ave., Wilmette, IL. 60091 847-251-3692   

   After high school, I attended Milton College and received an under graduate degree in Business in 1967. In 1969 I received an MBIAO from Northern Illinois University. After that I worked for G.D. Searle pharmaceuticals in Skokie, Illinois in a variety of capacities in the financial area. In 1980 I joined Bodie Hoover Petroleum Company in Lemont, Illinois and continue to work for them in the position of President.     Forty years of life experience has taught me…never be surprised at the unexpected!
