  1. As a friend I was truly blessed to have shared a portion of my life with Lyle. Many of the greatest gifts he gave me are in the form of some of the fondest memories that a person could ever hope to possess. When I think of Lyle with his seemly endless energy and smiles my endorphins are on their way up. I have not seen Lyle for some time but in past when I did it was always a uplifting experience, what a great person and friend. My heart and condolences go out to Judy, Travis, family and friends

  2. You just didn’t meet anyone with a bigger smile or bigger heart than Lyle. He will be sorely missed by those of use lucky enough to call him a friend. Though truthfully, Lyle always felt more like a member of the family. My deepest sympathy to Judy and Travis.
