Lynwood A. “Lyn” Hyle, 80, of Lititz, passed away peacefully on Nov. 2, 2023, after a yearlong battle with cancer.
Lyn was born in Lancaster on Dec. 1, 1942, to the late Arthur J. and Virginia (Sturgis) Hyle.
Lyn was a 1960 graduate of Warwick High School and a member of the wrestling team. He loved his country and joined the U.S. Navy after high school, where he was stationed in Scotland. After the military, he became a self-employed electrician, contractor, and real estate investor. He was a member of the IBEW Local 743 union and Country Cruisers of Lebanon County. Everyone knew him for his lifelong passion for cars – collecting them, working on them, and racing them. He enjoyed attending car shows, hosting his annual pig roast, hunting, volleyball, and pickleball. He will be remembered for making his friends and family laugh with his quick wit and constant pranks.
Surviving is his wife, Paula C. Benson; his children, Stacey Warner (Ryan), of Enola, Jeffrey Hyle (Brenda), of Lancaster, Steve Hyle (Jessy), of Temecula, CA; grandchildren, Jordan (Connor), Trey, Jaxon, Emma, Keith (Lexi), and Kelly (Ryan); a great grandson on the way, Oliver; a sister, Sandy Lovelidge, of Dover; stepchildren, Stephanie Ulrich (Mike), of Wyomissing, and Dean Levengood, of Los Angeles, CA; and step-grandchildren, Sarah and Adam.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Anne L. (Huber) Hyle, who passed away in 2005.
