Lyle was born April 29, 1925 on a farm 2 1/2 miles south of Chalco, Nebraska to William and Christena Plambeck. In the Spring of 1930, he and his parents moved to a farm near Papillion, Nebraska where he attended schools and graduated in 1943 at the age of 16. He participated in all of his school's athletic programs and most of their musical groups. In February of 1944, he enlisted in the Navy and served on the USS Hugh W Hadley during World War II. The Hadley received a Presidential Citation for its services in Okinawa. Following his discharge from the Navy, Lyle was employed by the Northwestern Bell Telephone Company in which he devoted 23 years of loyal service. During the course of that employment he was transferred to Fargo in 1958. In 1969, he left the telephone company to pursue other business interests. He co-founded DSI, Inc, now of West Fargo and later purchased a half interest in Tri-State Auction Company; also now of West Fargo. He retired from those businesses in 1987.
He was united in marriage to Valborg L Holmstrom on May 2, 1948. Lyle and Val are the proud parents of four children, Stephen, David, Dan and Kristi.
Lyle was very active in many organizations. He was a KCCH Mason at the East Gate Lodge in Fargo; he was a Shriner at El Zagal Temple in Fargo, having served as its Potentate in 1974 and was a longtime member of the Ritualistic Divan; he was a lifetime member of the Royal Order of Jesters; he was a Boy Scout Leader for 10 years and led two troops to national jamborees, including the 1964 Jamboree in Valley Forge and the 1969 Jamboree in Farragut, Idaho; he helped organize and served as the first President of the Scottish High Childhood Speech and Language Disorder Center in Fargo; and he was a lifetime member of the VFW and American Legion.
He enjoyed many hobbies but most of all, he enjoyed people and lived his life with uncommon zest and optimism.
Lyle wishes memorials to the Scottish Right Childhood Speech and Language Disorder Center in Fargo and The Shriner's Crippled Children's Hospitals and Elim Lutheran E-2000. He sincerely believed that one who helps another to the top of the hill can't help but get a little closer to the top himself.
He is survived by his wife, Val, son Steve (Susan), daughter-in-law Camo Jo, son Dan (Lori Jo), daughter Kris Jacobson (Randy), 10 grandchildren (Brian Jacobson, Mark Jacobson, Michael Plambeck, Shaina Plambeck, Paul Plambeck, Rachel Plambeck, Christena Plambeck, John Plambeck, Jess Plambeck and Stephanie Plambeck) and many dear friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Bill and Tena and his son, Dave.
