After 20 years of faithful service, Lyle retired from the U.S. Air Force. While serving his country, he lived in many states and countries. But, after retirement, he decided to return to his roots in Iowa, settling down in Ida Grove.

He enjoyed root beer floats with his 11 grandchildren: Hailey, Kimmie, Paige, Jarrod, Chad, Andrew, Emma, Blake, Alli, Alex and Nicholas; and his great-granddaughter, Emberly. Lyle died Dec. 4, 2020, surrounded by his family. He was survived by five brothers and sisters: Lavone, Lloyd, Lois, Leroy and Loretta and preceded to heaven by his parents and his brothers, Leonard and Larry. Lyle will be deeply missed by his friends, family and all who knew him.
