Lyle was raised on the family farm in Henry county, Kansas. He attended Chanute High school. Lyle left the family farm after high school, for the telecommunication industry. He worked for the companies that would eventually be Sprint and its subsidiaries, until retirement. Lyle grew up hunting on the farm, which turned into a lifelong interest in hunting and firearms. He also had a love of classic cars, especially Chevrolet Corvettes and their automotive history. Lyle was also fond of golf, playing with friends in various local tournaments. Lyle also was able to replicate his mother’s famous macaroni and cheese with uncanny precision.

He is preceded in death by his Father, Eldon Yowell and Mother, Ruth Yowell.
