Lyle Archer

July 10, 1922 - February 22, 2019


Lyle Perry Archer, 96, Fargo, formerly Valley City, ND, died Saturday, February 23, 2019 at Villa Maria.

Lyle Archer was born in Finley, ND on July 10, 1922 to Ralph and Ida (Madsen) Archer. Lyle was united in marriage to Sybil LaRue Ask in 1945 in Finley. Lyle and Sybil were members of Our Saviors Lutheran Church in Valley City. He was also a member of the Lions and Eagles Fraternal Organizations. Lyle worked for CH Carpenter Lumber in Valley City until his retirement in 1985.

He enjoyed golfing at Valley City Country Club, fishing at Lake Ashtabula, gardening, and biking. Lyle also enjoyed playing cards with his grandchildren. Lyle will always be remembered for his reassuring smile with a playful wink and a face of acceptance and assurance. He was a devoted husband and provider and loving father, and we all pray for a life as well lived as his.

Lyle is survived by his son Scott (Maria) Archer, grandchildren, Erik (Beth) Archer, Onalaska, WI, Adam Archer, Rochester, MN, Emily (Ben) Riniker, East Dubuque, IA, Seth (Jennie) Archer, Fargo, ND, Sean Archer, St. Cloud, MN; great grandchildren, Luke, Elli, Finley, Magda, Catherine; sister, Joyce Neilson, Bloomington MN. He is preceded in death by his wife, Sybil, son, Grant, brother, Ralph, sisters, Geraldine Peterson and Dolores Byer.

Lyle’s family would like to express their appreciation to Villa Maria Nursing Home and Hospice of the Red River Valley for their continuous loving care of Lyle.

    I knew Lyle and Sybil through their son Grant (my very good friend, may he Rest In Peace). Lyle and Sybil were such gracious people whom I highly respected. My sincere condolences to the Archer family, especially Scott, Seth and Sean.

  2. Jon Wagar says:

    Scott, I’m so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing…he was a gentleman and a pillar of our little community. His was, indeed, a life well lived! I hope he’s catching up with your mom and enjoying celestial coffee with Riley and Dr. Clayton!

    I am so sorry for your loss. No words can take away the pain of losing loved ones, but please know that God is with you during this difficult time… I truly hope it brings you some comfort knowing that your beloved Lyle and Sybil are in a deep sleep, in peace (1 Thessalonians 4:13,14).
    Please trust in God’s beautiful promise, that we will not be going through this forever; suffering, getting sick, growing old, and dying. There is a hope that God has promised us! Revelation 21:3,4
