Our sympathies to Jayne and family. We knew Lyle from the early days in WTPA pulling. He stayed with us once or twice when there were pulls up north. Don't remember if he had a camper. He was alone as his kids were too young to travel. Great man who will be missed. Ron and Joyce Hoffman

The kind of guy that would build a big pool for the family (with a deep end), even though he could not swim!
