Lyle Frederick Skinner was born May 10, 1935, to Earl and Lucille (Wohlenberg) Skinner at Carroll, Iowa. He was baptized as an infant at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Lidderdale. His early childhood was spent on his grandparents' farm northwest of Lidderdale. When he was 5, the family moved to a farm southeast of Auburn. Lyle went to country school near Auburn. He was confirmed in 1950 at Zion Lutheran Church in Auburn and graduated from Auburn High School in 1953.

In January 1955 he enlisted in the U.S. Army, serving in Germany, and was honorably discharged in December 1956. He then worked at various jobs including road maintenance for Sac County.

On Sept. 4, 1960, he married Phyllis Stoelting at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Sac City. To this union were born five sons and two daughters. They made their home on the Williamson farm southeast of Auburn until 1983 when they moved to Lake City.

He enjoyed having coffee and telling "stories" with friends, going to Southern Cal football games, and especially spending time with his kids and grandkids. In later years he could be seen zipping around on his scooter. He was a faithful member of Zion Lutheran Church in Auburn and then Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Lake City.

Lyle is survived by his wife, Phyllis, of Lake City; his children Michael (Carol) Skinner of Lidderdale, Barbara (Michael) Grossman of Windsor Heights, Mark Skinner of Rock Island, Ill., Matthew (Delfina) Skinner of Saratoga Springs, Utah, Kevin (Sara) Skinner of Westside, Russell (Marsha) Skinner of Huxley, and Lara (Scott) Haakenson of Carroll; 14 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; a brother Larry (Lois) Skinner of Lake City; sisters Jeannette (Wendell) Volkens of Council Bluffs and Carlene (Ron) Allard of Kimberling City, Mo.; sisters-in-law Betty Stoelting of Carroll, Carol Nicholson of Ashland, Kan., and Marlene (John) Hemmer of Mission, Texas; numerous nieces and nephews, and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; grandparents; nephews Douglas Volkens and Jason Kowalke; father- and mother-in-law Edwin and Rose Stoelting; and brother- and sister-in-law Kenneth and Jean Stoelting.
