Dayon Lyles Obituary, Death- We mourn the loss of Dayon Darnell Lyles, an active 13-year-old boy whose life was taken too soon on the evening in the 3500 block of Blue Spruce Lane in Indianapolis’s northeast. Our hearts are heavy as we send our sympathies to Dayon’s loved ones and family members. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department received a distressing call about a person who had been shot at around eight o’clock that evening. That’s when the mishap occurred.
At the moment of their arrival, they discovered a wounded minor named Dayon outside. Dayon’s injuries were too severe, and despite the best efforts of those who rushed to his aid, he passed away. Dayon’s condition was so dire that he was rushed to a nearby hospital; however, he succumbed to his wounds soon after arriving there. The Marion County Coroner’s Office has identified the deceased teen as Dayon Darnell Lyles. The untimely death of Dayon is a painful reminder of the recent uptick in violence that has claimed the lives of several other young people in Indianapolis.
The community is left to mourn the loss of yet another promising individual whose life was cut short much too soon. There are no words to describe the magnitude of the grief and pain that Dayon’s loved ones and the entire community are feeling right now, but we are here to comfort and support one another. Those who were lucky enough to call Dayon a friend will never forget him, and the community as a whole will feel a deep loss at the loss of its bright rising star. During this time when we are mourning the brutally brief life of Dayon, let us also reaffirm our common commitment to working toward making our community a more loving and secure home for our young people.
May the memory of Dayon serve as a heartbreaking reminder that every life is important and deserves to be safeguarded, and may his family find strength and peace in the outpouring of support from those who share in their grief. May Dayon’s death serve as a sobering reminder that all human life is valuable and should be safeguarded. The details of the memorial services, including how to send condolences, will be announced in the coming days by the family.
