Lyall Dallas Strube
Birth: Sep. 20, 1932
Edwards County
Kansas, USA
Death: Oct. 21, 2009

Lyall Dallas Strube passed on to his eternal life with Christ the Savior Wednesday, October 21, 2009. Lyall was born to Raymond and Sarah (Sally) Strube in Kinsley, Kansas on September 20, 1932, the sixth of seven children. Most of his young life he was surrounded by his loving grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins. He learned many things from his father about mechanics and fondly reminisced of going with him to read meters and do electrical work for Kansas Power and Light. At the age of fourteen, Lyall, his parents and his younger brother Curtis along with Boots the dog and Kilroy the cat in tow, moved to a dairy farm in south central Missouri. With cows to milk, hogs to feed, eggs to gather and barns to clean, he kept busy. At eighteen, Lyall decided to strike out on his own, thinking the farm life was not for him. Leaving his parents, brother and the farm behind, he went back to Kansas working odd jobs for a while. It was in Hutchinson, Kansas in 1952 that he enlisted in the military. After sixteen weeks of basic training in California, he was stationed in Louisiana where he enjoyed hanging out at the local roller rink. It was there that he met Wilma Welch, fell in love with her, wooed and married her in 1954. Lyall was stationed in Honolulu where their son Lyall Douglas, and oldest daughter, Pamela Sue were born. After three years they were off to Spokane, Washington where second daughter Brenda Gaye was welcomed. After 18 months, the little family was off to Merced, California were the youngest daughter Twila Jo was born. McGuire AFB, New Jersey; Tripoli, Libya; Frankfurt, Germany; Smyrna, Tennessee and Jacksonville, Arkansas and an isolated tour to Southeast Asia rounded out the remainder of his service to his country. After 23 years, he retired in Jacksonville. When first coming to Jacksonville, the family began attending Landmark Missionary Baptist Church. It was through the preaching there that he found the saving grace of Jesus, the Christ. He was faithful to His Lord by attending church until his health no longer allowed. Even then, he was the tape minister for several years copying tapes and sending them to service personnel and elderly shut- ins. He was always interested in history and as a young family on the move, they always found themselves having picnics at battlegrounds or he was reading about something related to the military and politics. While living in North Africa for 3 years, the family would take day trips to the Roman ruins at Leptis Magna and Sabratha. He had a very profound love of nature. He loved dogs and gave in to his four children when a little red Cocker Spaniel came around, who was later named Taffy. A runt and too small to be let down with small kids, he would tuck her in his shirt pocket and off they would go! He was always a quiet man, being raised in a quiet family. You didn't have to have a lot of conversation, but when he spoke you listened. At the grooms gravy for grandson Ryan, Gerry Carter loves to recall how when Lyall (Big) stood up to give his advice to Ryan, great grandson Garrett ran out, leaning over, he shouted, "EVERYBODY, SHHH!, Big's talkin!" He spoke to Ryan of faithfulness to your spouse, and that was what he lived. While a young airman not making much money with a family of six, he would work part time like all good fathers and providers do. Whatever it took, he did it. Lyall was a faithful, loving husband and father who was always there for his family. He knew to listen, too. Lyall was very much an observer in his later years, but was really rambunctious and always playing tricks in his younger times. Although Lyall was affectionately known as "General" to his church family, he was "Big" to his eleven grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Dustin Strube, wife Andrea and children Riley Ann and Alex: Courtney and Carley Strube, Amber Busch Lindley and husband Brad and children Garrett Blake and Anna Grace; Ryan Busch and wife Robin, Sarah Busch; Lucas Edwards and Seth Edwards ; Erik Temple and wife Megan, Jacob Temple; Alison Kaseberg; and step grandchildren Mark and Matthew Casey and Krista Paulson. Celebration service will be Saturday, October 24, 1 p.m. Landmark Missionary Baptist Church, Jacksonville with Pastor Timothy Carter. Graveside service will be at Mt. Carmel Cemetery, Cabot. Visitation will be 6-8 p.m Friday at Moore's Cabot Funeral Home. Arrangements are under the direction of Moore's Cabot Funeral Home (501)843-5816.
