Dear Laura,I was heartbroken to hear of your tragic loss and cannot imagine the weight of your grief. I pray that in time, you and your family will experience joy, breathe more easily, and notice beauty in the world again. Not because you no longer remember the heaviness of his loss; but because you have gained the strength to carry it. You and your family have my deepest sympathy, Dawn Hardin

Although I hadn't seen Lyle for many years, it looks like yesterday that he was standing in the middle of the wrestling mat with his hand lifted by the referee to proclaim that he was the state champion in his weight class. I always remember him and his brothers as "happy" young men who fulfilled their dreams by working hard at whatever they chose to do.All of the family are in my prayers and especially Lyle. May he rest in peace.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Lyle and I only knew each other for 10 years, but it felt like a lifelong friendship. The Josh Groban and Pearl Jam tours we did together were challenging to say the least, but to me, Lyle was always professional and my buddy. We honestly yelled at each other once, and then laughed about it for 10 years. We started doing the Super Bowl together, and it was great to count on seeing him once a year on a really fun gig. To all his family, but especially Laura, Jordan and Melissa, I am so very sorry for your incalculable loss. Lyle and I spent many one on one hours together, and I although we've never met, I feel close to you because of the way he spoke so lovingly and proudly of his family. In so many ways, and to so many people, life with Lyle was a true blessing, and I am a better person to have been part of his life. Wishing the best for your family……Jeff "Wilson" Anderson

I was shocked to learn of Lyle's sudden passing. To me, Lyle vividly represented what it said on his business card "Man of Action." It seems impossible that he has left us so soon. He was the embodiment of life itself. My sincere condolences to Lyle's family and his many friends. We won't see his like again.
