Lyle was a great friend of ours. We spent many fun filled winters in Florida with him and Rosie, as well as some great visits with them in Ohio and PA during the summer. My late husband, King, and Lyle spent lots of winter days along with our other friends just sitting in the courtyard swapping stories and enjoying each others company while we wives shopped and did "our things". Lyle was a wonderful entertainer with his many stories.
He will certainly be missed by all and most of all his and Rosies fine family.
My deepest sympathy to all of them. Rosie, he and King are probably already catching up on old times and telling each other some good stories.
God Bless you all!
Love Jeanie

Although I hadn't seen Lyle since a teenager..I do know that he and his many siblings represented what a wholesome family in america should be...I have a lot of respect for a family who has grown up with the kind of bonding that all people should thrive for as he has carried on with his ..and as well as his brothers and sisters did with theres...although we are parting with a wonderful soul...I feel he has left a lasting impression with friends and family who may follow his lead in becoming as close to his manners and beliefs. ,,as they incorporate them with their own...Rip Lyle...may you be with God and all your others now in Heaven
