Lyle proudly served in the United States Air Force, retiring as a tech sergeant after 21 years. He ran three successful family businesses" Arrowhead Auction Gallery, Blair Treasure Chest and the Traveling Monkey.
Lyle enjoyed hunting with his father in Kansas, and attending auctions, especially the local longhorn and buffalo sales. Even though his passion was trying to make a buck, he always had time to sit and talk with friends. He will always be remembered as a loving father and grandfather, and he leaves us rich in memories.
Lyle's spirit is carried on by his wife, Jessie, of the home; his parents; three daughters: Alexandria Byrum, Ezable and Sabrina Bertram; three sons: Greg Daugherty and wife Amanda; and Jake and John Bertram; five grandchildren: Keaton, Caleb, Kylee, Brittney and Jasmine; a brother, Robert Bertram and wife Melissa; and an extended family of friends from every walk of life.
In lieu of flowers, Lyle would hope that you do an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness for someone in his name.
The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the funeral home.
