To my father a man who not only left me great memories but life lessons. From loving the same teams with the Lakers and Rams. Word can't express what it means to be your son. Being loudest parent on the block and playing sports the loudest parent out of everyone. To the family gatherings for the Lakers game and you knew how to bring the family together from getting on the grill making some of the best barbecue even when it was raining outside, it's hard to say goodbye to one of the realest father's in the world. And the boys will miss you and you loved all five of your grandkids and we can all say nothing will ever feel the same hearing your voice you call my phone Rams won and say I love you son and hang up.

Lyle, will always be the favorite uncle!! He had a way to reach my reach the nieces and nephews. His infectious laugh and the stories he always got wrong kept everyone entertained. I loved my brother through it all. He was prideful, caring and the center of attention. He was always the loudest person in any setting with his voice and his laugh. I was always the mean uncle and Lyle was the complete opposite. He loved the attention when all the family was around. You will be remembered by all of us for different specific memories. You’re with Mom & Dad . Love you Lyle

Daddy,
Accepting the fact that you are no longer here is by far the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I miss you video chatting me and the boys. I don’t know how to cope and it is hitting me more and more each day. I’ll never be able to accept this “new normal.”

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH DADDY,
Meek meek

Uncle Lyle, this is hard. I’ve been trying to put my words together for days now. you gave me the best memories from childhood to adulthood. You was my dad every summer, i have too many memories. from you making us come in the house from playing outside bc you bought so many burgers from Wendy’s & you wanted us to sit down as a family & enjoy dinner😆 to you waking us out of our sleep to line up military style in the middle of the night bc you wanted to find out who ate your Bakers Papa meal while you was sleep😂 us riding in the car bumpin R.Kelly, going to amusement parks & beaches, you stealing cranberry & apple juice from your job and making us pack them in the fridge when you came home from work😭 to telling your crazzyyy stories like why your feet is so messed up bc you & your brother had to share a pair of shoes, you had the right shoe & he had the left and y’all was forced to walk to school like that in the SNOW lmao i can go on & on. Thank you for taking care of me every summer & being so amazing to me, treating me as if i was your own. I will forever Love you for that.
Can’t wait to see you again..
-🤎Love Your TT
