Underwood, Lyle (25 SEP 1949 - 12 SEP 2010)
Lyle Underwood, 60, of Chili, found peace Sunday, Sept. 12, 2010, surrounded by his family.
Lyle was born Sept. 25, 1949, in Clark County. He graduated from Colby High School in 1967 and served in the U.S. Navy during Vietnam. He married Judith Mueller on May 28, 1971, in Minnesota.
After the Navy, Lyle worked as an electrician at Marshfield Homes before moving to Chicago in 1973 to become a service technician for Cushing Technical, working on industrial equipment. He then moved back to Marshfield in 1976 to become OEM sales manager for LTI Corporation until 1981, when he started his own company as a distributor of gluing equipment and industrial products. In 2001, he sold his company to his son and created a new entity where he designed and built industrial equipment while continuing to help his son with technical services.
Lyle was an avid outdoorsman; he enjoyed hunting, fishing and riding his tractor. He always looked forward to fall and enjoyed watching Packers games. He was the "go-to guy" for many people, always willing to lend a hand, but, most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.
Lyle will be dearly missed by his wife, Judy; his son, Brandon (Susan); his daughter, Alison (Robert) Griesbach; grandchildren, Abby and Luca Underwood; and his dog, Fawn (aka Butthead).
He is also survived by his sister, Barbara (Roger) Schuh; brother, LeRoy (Judy) Underwood; his mother-in-law, Marie Mueller; and numerous brothers- and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and many, many friends.
He was predeceased by his mother, Mae Harder; his stepfather, Norb Harder; his father, Elvin Underwood; and his nephew Brian Underwood.
The family would like to thank Edgewater Nursing home and Ministry Hospice for their compassionate care.
A celebration of his life will be held at the Wildwood Park Pavilion on Friday, Oct. 1, 2010. Visitation will be from 10:30 a.m. until 11 a.m., with service at 11 a.m. and a lunch/gathering to follow.
In lieu of flowers, the family wishes donations are made to the DAV or the American Cancer Society in Lyle's name.
