Mr. Lyall has also served the community on numerous boards and committees such as the United Way of Muskingum, Perry and Morgan Counties, The Muskingum County Transportation Improvement District Board, both the Good Samaritan and Bethesda Care system boards, Pro-Muskingum, and was a Founding Board member of the Zanesville-Muskingum Port Authority. He is a past president of the Muskingum County Community Foundation.

Mr. Lyall is a member of the ZHS Hall of Fame and previously received the Chuck Hunter Community Leadership Award, the United Way’s Cole and Thomas Lifetime Achievement award and The Muskingum County Community Foundation’s Bob Beam Award. Mr. Lyall and his wife Patricia have four adult children, Julie, Jason, Katie and Sara, and twelve grandchildren.

The Dick Johnson Award, established in 2000 through the efforts of Bob Kessler, was presented to Thomas M. Lyall on Friday, January 26th, 2018, at the Ohio University Zanesville/Zane State College Campus Center during the Muskingum County Community Foundation’s (MCCF) annual Groundhog Day event.
