Mona’s will just never be the same that’s for sure. Neither will the gay community of Fort Lauderdale. John Lyons, bartender at Mona’s for 11 years, passed away Monday at the age of 60.
Diagnosed with lung cancer a few months back, Lyons was forced to stop working. Jerry Schultz, owner of Mona’s, was quoted as saying that Lyons was the most faithful, loyal and honest employee he ever had.
Schultz is planning on hosting a life memorial for Lyons sometime next month.
May you rest in peace.
