To his older sister, Cpl. Lyle J. Cambridge will always be little Lyle, the brother who bought her an Easter dress each year and always tried to make people laugh. "I don't believe there was ever a day when Lyle got mad. He just wins your heart," Shauna Dee said. Cambridge, 23, of Shiprock, N.M., was killed July 5 in Baghdad, Iraq, when an explosive detonated near his vehicle. He was based at Fort Carson. He is survived by his wife, Evonne, and two young sons, 3-year-old Wyatt and 1-year-old Nick. A member of the Navajo Nation, Cambridge joined the Army in May 2002, two years after graduating from high school. His father, Joe Cambridge Sr., is a veteran, as his brother Vernon. "He was a good man," Evonne Cambridge said, crediting his parents and siblings for her husband's good nature. "You raised him to be a very respectful and honest, encouraging man."
