Our beloved husband, loving father, and devoted grandfather, passed away on February 7, 2011. Lyal was born on June 16, 1923 in Oklahoma.

He graduated from Bakersfield High School in 1942. Lyal proudly served his country as a United States Marine in World War II in the South Pacific. He worked in the grocery and dairy business for many years and finished his career working for Duche-Dole Nut Company. Lyal adored his family and was happiest when the whole clan gathered together. He was loved, admired and respected by all who knew him. His words of encouragement, wisdom and advice will be shared with generations to come. He will be greatly missed.
