Lyle resided in Oshkosh for nearly 25 years, employed as a property mamager for an outreach ministry associated with Zion Lutheran Church in Oshkosh, where Lyle was a faithful member. During that same time, he served multiple churches as a lay minister with steadfast faith and perseverance. For those who knew him, Lyle’s faith was the cornerstone of his life. When his illness became overwhelming, he resided with his parents in Unity and they along with his sisters and daughter continued to care for him and they were all with him when he returned to his Lord. His hobbies included camping, being outdoors, fishing and hunting. Some of his greatest loves were motorcycling with friends, and playing volleyball for more than 20 years. He had a special interest in firearms.
