Though we are distant cousins and never met, I am sorry for your loss.

Tracy
I just want to pass on my condolences. You may remember me. Rob and I lived next to each other in West Quad and then again in the apartment on Arch and Oakland Street when he lived with Zuver , Hennesey and Cedia. You would remember me as "Schultzie"

I, like most who have written about Rob, have enormous memories of him. Although we were the same age,....I looked up to Rob. He was a tenacious football player - enerybody knows that. But what struck me most was how he treated people. He was always kind and welcoming ,...despite his fame from football. I remember after Saturday games,..he would walk in the back door of the apartment complex on Oakland - beaten up from having just played hard. He had orange sized scabs on his arms and had gotten punded for three hours,....but always had time to talk and be warm and engaging. He is truly one of my life heros. A great man. I am sad - but glad I was able to witness such a wonderful example for all.

Rob was my Teammate and friend. He had the talent and skills like no other. One of the toughest running backs in the History of Michigan football.He is the example of what Michigan football is all about and he gained the respect from his teammates both on and off the field.
Tracy and Family, my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

Sincerely,

Rob was a great person and inspirational teammate of mine. My life is better from knowing Rob.
His "give it all" attitude was always respected by myself and others.
My condolences to Tracy and the family.
With love, Jim Smith

I just learned of Rob's passing in Sports Illustrated. Rob Lytle was one of my first football heroes at Michigan when I was on campus in 1974-75. He was a fabulous player and shining example of Michigan football at its finest. Please accept my deepest sympathies, thoughts, and prayers.

Tracy,
My wife, Tracy, and I were very shocked to hear of Rob's death. We had had occasion to meet both of you at parties hosted by Ted and Marion Wolfe. We had also shopped at Rob's store. He was always gracious to us, when we asked about his Michigan and Bronco careers (we are from Michigan). The world just became a little poorer from his passing. He always gave his all to the game and to his community. Everyone in Fremont always told us of his great heart. Reading the comments on the Internet, one can see that his performances and humility touched thousands. We know you miss him terribly and wish you the best in the future.

I had the pleasure of meeting Rob while we both served on the Fremont Ross committee that was interviewing potential candidates for the varsity head coaching position a few years ago.I told him that even though I was a die-hard Dallas Cowboy fan, I was glad that he scored the only touchdown for the Broncos in the '77 Super Bowl and that I had always enjoyed watching him play at Michigan.What an honor it was for me to meet him.My family extends our condolences to yours,Fremont has lost a special son.

Dear Tracy,
Rob was an adopted brother to me, my sister and my brother. His passing has left an empty space for all of us. He was, simply, a good man. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

I was sad to hear about the death of Rob Lytle last week. My brother face book me about the news. My brother & me played football against Rob Lytle back in high school in Ohio. Back then it was called the Buckeye conference. Rob ran for over 200 yards against us that Friday night, and that was after coming back from a injury. I played linebacker at that time, and I remember tackling him on one of those running plays. I hit him as hard as I could on that play. Rob stood up from the pile & looked over to see who was that person who hit him. He reach over & patted me on the back, and said, "good tackle". I remembering thinking to myself, "how can you get mean with a guy like this". You just gave him your best stuff, and he complimented on your hit". Rob was not only one of the greatest players I ever had the privilege to play against in my football days. But also, was a class act. My prayers to his family. Rob, thanks for the great memories.
