He coached my little league baseball team 50 years ago. Wonderful man. I was so saddened to learn of his passing.

I'm sorry to hear about Lyle. He was a wonderful person. He was good to me while I was married to his father Jay. You all were. Tell your family I'm very sorry. Prayers sent. Love you all Jennie

Marilyn, I'm so sorry to hear of this, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I enjoyed being a reserve under Lyle and thought the world of his leadership.

It has probably been said already 100 times, but I'll make it 101. Great cop, but more over a great husband, dad, grandpa and in general a great human being.

You all can be as proud of him as he was of you.

My sympathies are extended to you Mark and the rest of your family.
