    Hi, Sharon. We’re so sorry to read in today’s Forum that Lyle has died. You, Steve, Tom, and families are certainly very much in our thoughts and prayers. Love and Blessings.

    My memories of Lyle begin with Sharon, who was so eager to tell me about her new love while they were dating; a love that soon blossomed into marriage celebrated in that lovely little Lutheran Church in Upham. I was fortunate to be a bridesmaid at that ceremony. While distance prevented us from engaging in the daily interactions of friends, our bond of shared memories was secure over the years and infrequent meetings.

    Many decades have passed and diverse paths taken, but Lyle’s joy, energy, enthusiasm, ability to make those around him feel carefree and happy never changed, nor did his intangible gifts – his values, dreams, love, faith, and strength which he lovingly bequeathed to his children and grandchildren.

    A pleasure to know him.

    A life well lived.
