He was born on March 2, 1924 in Medford, WI, a son of the late Earl and Daisy (Miller) Huebner.
Lyle honorably served our Country during WW II as a member of the United States Army.
On February 5, 1946, Lyle was united in marriage to Luverne V. Thompson. To this union, two children were born. Luverne preceded Lyle in death just 35 days ago, April 17, 2016.
Lyle and his wife resided in Medford, WI until they relocated to Mondovi in 1963 when he began a successful career at Mondovi Implement that saw him retire in 1986 as the parts manager.
