Where do you begin with "Uncle Lyle". Uncle Lyle as our family knew him was a wonderful man. Even though he was not our family he was family with close friends of ours and was always around. Lyle loved being around people and loved to see our children play and would tease them whenever he could. When I explained to our daughter about the loss of Uncle Lyle, she stated with tears in her eyes, "well, he just had to go to Heaven to live with Jesus and be an angel" and she is right. We will miss Uncle Lyle so much and our prayers are with his family.

Lyle will always be in my heart. He was the best guy i've ever known be so friendly, loving and caring towards girls and people he barely knew. He was always baking us cookies, bringing water popsicles, doughnuts, and the most great tasting cinamon rolls you could ever ask for. Lyle will never ever be forgotten. We love him and will miss him very much.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Love, Chanstin Besendorfer

Lyle was a wonderful guy and he was always keeping us stocked up with water and plenty of snacks. Only Lyle makes the best cookies :-) Lyle didnt have to do what he did for us but the fact that he did made us all look up to him. We were so excited to see Lyle back this year after telling us last year would be the last year he would be our water boy. Words cant explain how important Lyle was to our softball team. We will keep everyone in our prayers. We love you Lyle and we will nevr forget you.
