We will miss Mr. Hanks...3/4 of my school years were under his supervision in some form or another. I will never forget the M&M dispenser on his desk in Sr. Highschool and the many discussions about the importance of staying in school we had while I sat in his office. He was a one of a kind person.

When you miss your Father and you need for him to be with you, I want you to do what I did when my Dad died. I looked up at the Big Dipper* and saw that there were three stars in the handle and I named the middle one for my Dad, and anytime I need him....or just anytime I'm outside at night, or I think of him, I look at that star, and I whisper his name and I feel him right there with me. Lyle will be with you forever...all you have to do is whisper his name in your heart,, and he's...

Mr Hanks was a friend of our family ever since I could remember, I will always have very fond memories of him. My prayers go out to Laura and the whole family.

Coach Hanks was a great person even he gave you that Look! He was a fair man who really care about you. Saw him at the All-School Class Reunion this fall had a great talk. RIP

Dear Hanks Family - wow, a coaching legend has passed. I had the privilege of playing football under Coach Hank's leadership. His physical appearance was intimidating, his command voice frightening but he had a heart for developing young men, turning them into solid (tax paying, LOL) citizens. He was also a wonderful neighbor and community leader. Rest in peace Coach Hanks !

Remembering the good times the three coaches had. Hanks, Bombach and Krueger from a photograph we have.
