    Born in Brillion on April 25, 1923, to the late Michael Peter and Anna (Pritzl) Becker, Lyle graduated from Brillion High School in 1941, where he distinguished himself as senior class president, yearbook editor, band member, captain of the cheerleading squad, and District Delegate to Badger Boys State. Raised in a family of musicians, he shared his love of music playing baritone with the Brillion City Band, was a member of the Green Bay Men's Chorus, and later, sang with the Santa Barbara Men's Choral Society. Inspired by his father's commitment to public service as Postmaster of the Brillion Post Office, Lyle served as City of Brillion Alderman, President of the Brillion Lion's Club, and founding member of the Chilton Hospital Board. He was honored for his civic mindedness as one of the Outstanding Young Men of Wisconsin in 1954. He proudly served in the 87th Acorn Division, US Infantry, World War II, stationed in England, France, Belgium, and Germany. While on furlough, July 25, 1944, Lyle was united in marriage to his lifetime soulmate, Dolores Joanna Jacobs. The couple has enjoyed 70 dedicated years together.

    Distinguished business, church and community achievements aside, Lyle was more than anything, a gentleman, one of those rare men who family members and friends seek out . . . for love and support, for advice and understanding, for laughs and friendship. He will be deeply missed by his loving wife, Dolores; five sons: Michael P. Becker, Santa Fe, NM; James (Mary) Becker, Santa Fe, NM; Paul Becker, Neenah; Peter Becker, St. Petersburg, FL; and Jonathan (Nicole) Becker, Brillion; three daughters: Kristine Becker, Appleton; Susan (Douglas) Svetnicka, Santa Fe, NM; and Patrice Becker, Aspen, CO. Lyle was devoted to his eleven grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
