    Lyle got to be a close friend while I was incarcerated at McAuley,,,,, actually, it’s a great place to be when you need the assistance and support. I sat with Lyle and “the guys” for lots of meals. I, too, enjoyed the “grumpy”! “When are you going to eat?” “When I get ready!” He was so sick of being “sick and tired” that he left us peacefully. Thanks to both of you for sharing our grandson, Thom…… I’m not sure what I’d do without him. I also want to share the celebration of Lyle’s life. I’m sure he has his wings by now and probably a halo cocked to one side like the hat Theresa bought for him.

    Our love and sympathies to you and your family Theresa. We are so happy we got to spend time with you and Lyle at the last family reunion. May you be comforted by your years of memories in your time of grief.
    Love and God Bless

    Lyle and Theresa have been my neighbors for nearly 30 years. He helped me out so many times when I first bought my mobile home, and was SO patient with me and my ignorance! He could fix anything and did for many of us around the Oaks park. I still remember watching him with Tommy and Steven when I first moved there. He was such a good Grandpa. I know he didn’t feel well for a long time and I hope he is now at peace. I will always remember his kindness. Sincere condolences to all who loved him and will miss him.

    Lyle loved to play cribbage at the Muskegon Heights Eagles. He was such a joy to be around. Always helping his neighbors or anyone else that needed help. Your going to be missed by many. A fun guy to be around.

    I will always miss Lyle. He was a joy to take care of and always made my days better! He would say he felt terrible but better when he had us taking care of him.

    I will always miss my grumpy old man! “How are you today, Lyle? “… ” Terrible.”, with that smirk on his face. Loved it every time. We are always here for you, Theresa, Your forever family. Sanctuary at McAuley.
