THOMPSON, LYLE BYOIR, passed away peacefully at home August 11, 2018. Born November 11, 1932 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, he was the son of Colonel Frank B. Thompson and his wife Barbara. The family moved to Sunset Island # 2 on Miami Beach in the 1940's and kept their residence there until 1996. After graduating from Riverdale prep in NYC, he went on to receive his undergraduate degree from The University of Miami. Drafted into the United States Army during the Korean War, Lyle proudly served from 1952 to 1954. He married Arlene Hoffman in the 1950's and they had two children, Mark Thompson of Graham, Texas and Scott Thompson of San Antonio, Texas. Lyle had a beautiful voice and always loved to sing. In the 1960's he owned a record store and had a live radio show in Miami. As host of the "The Lyle Thompson Show", he sang both current hits and the classics. After moving to Corpus Christi, Texas in 1968, Lyle earned his MBA from Texas A & I and began his career as a C.P.A. Lyle moved back to Miami Beach and opened offices in the Financial Federal Building on the Lincoln Road Mall, where he practiced as a C.P.A. and investment advisor until his passing. Shortly after returning to Miami Beach, he met and married his wife of 36 years, Jane Patten Schuh. Jane and Lyle were passionate about travel and explored the world together. Whether traveling to Southeast Asia to visit orchid farms, or touring private art collections in the Midwest there was always a destination to explore together. Coinciding with his love of music, Lyle was drawn to Hollywood film and was a movie enthusiast. Lyle worked for a number of years on a collection of poetry, hoping one day to see it published. A wonderful listener, but an even better storyteller, Lyle's love of being an entertainer was ever present. Lyle's kindness and understanding will be sadly missed. Lyle is survived by his wife Jane P Schuh, his sons; Pat Schuh; Mark Thompson and wife Susan; Scott Thompson and wife Stephanie, and his six grandchildren; Lauren, Kathryn, Jennifer, Blake, Harrison Lyle and Grant Byoir. A funeral mass will be held at St. Patrick's Catholic Church, Miami Beach. 11 am, Tuesday August 28th.
