Lyle J. Peil, born March 5, 1940, passed away on Oct. 2, 2020 at the age of 80. He was born in Roundup, grew up in Shepherd, and graduated from Shepherd High School in 1959.

Lyle was a family man who was married to his wife JoAnn for 55 years and raised two children. He served three years in the United States Army and honorably discharged as a Specialist E-4 mechanic. He was a dedicated, dependable, loyal employee, who provided for his family by devoting 37 years, without a sick day, to Big Sky Linen as an outside salesman and mechanic. He loved hunting, fishing and shooting, and enjoyed going out to his Uncle Frank’s ranch to shoot prairie dogs. When not making the lawn perfect, puttering in the garden and cursing the rabbits, he loved to watch westerns on TV. He was a cowboy at heart, born a hundred years too late. He was generous with his kids and grandkids, and never missed a birthday or a holiday. He was a gruff man with a heart of gold. He will be missed.

He was preceded in death by his son, Steven Peil. He is survived by his wife, JoAnn Peil and his daughter Teresa (Brian) Grayson and grandchildren Amanda and Isaiah. His siblings include Shaaron Peil, Carl (Pam) Peil, Jean (Gary) McDermott, David (Cathy) Peil, Mary (Mitch) Macrow and Grace (Duane) Catoire.

Memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 8, at New Life Church, 3950 Temple Place. Viewing will be from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 9, at Michelotti-Sawyers Mortuary, 1001 Alderson Ave. Burial at Sunset Memorial Gardens at 2 p.m. with military honors.

  4. Lyle was our neighbor on Lynn Ave for 20+ years, he was such a nice man and had a unique sense of humor. He worked so hard on his lawn constantly. He will be missed.

    I will always remember Lyle as the “rug man” who cheerfully brought my little post office clean rugs each week. What an accomplishment to work 37 years without a sick day. I’ll also always remember him as the newsman who reported the 9/11 disaster to me that fateful day. Lyle was a very kind soul. It was a pleasure knowing him.
