Lyle was hardworking, a man of strong faith, devoted husband, loving father, awesome friend, amazing grandfather and great grandfather. Church and family were foremost. Lyles life was steeped in tradition and was prevalent in his final days. His family cherished and honored him, his friends respected and depended on him. This is the life and legacy he both lived and taught. He respected and honored all as we honor and celebrate his life.
