Mary Ann and family,
I am so sorry to read of Lyle's passing. I enjoyed playing baseball with him for 4 years at Lincoln High and was always welcome in his home after school during those early years. God Bless,

I remember the time our two families went up onto BLM land to get our Christmas trees. Channey and Lyle finally found our trees but they were on the down side of the mountain and then had to get the trees up to the cars. They weren't too happy by the time the trees were up on the road, but it gave us a wonderful memory and one that can still make me smile.
