Jim Lyons' Death 9/29/16 (10/1/16)

Tax Prof Blog reports here this morning that former DOJ Tax Civil Trial Attorney, Jim Lyons, died.  I will update this post when I have more information.  In the meantime, the Tax Prof Blog links to this article in Roll Call: Senate Staffer Suffers Cardiac Arrest at Charity Basketball Game, here.  I will post more when I have it.

George Kelley's Death 9/23/16 (10/1/16)

George Kelley, career lawyer with DOJ Tax CES, died on September 23, 2016.  The Washington Post obituary is here.

The obituary discusses briefly his service with the Tax Division, his family and the mass and visitation.

Most of the readers who knew George will know his DOJ Tax career trajectory, but perhaps new information is his service as a "special agent for the Department of Treasury" and his service with the National Guard rising to "Battalion Commander of the 105 mm Field Artillery."
