He was baptized at a young age at the Moorhead Assembly of God Church. He attended country school near Pillager, MN. Lyle was involved in farming all of his life. He raised dairy and beef cattle. He also raised and sold hay. He was up before the sun rose and didnt rest until the sun did for the night. He was a hard worker. He farmed in a few different areas of Minnesota including Downer, Rollag for over 20 years and lastly near Lake Park. In his spare time, Lyle enjoyed boating and fishing. Lyle was known to many as Happy Go Lucky. He loved to eat, and his siblings teased that they would pass the bowls of food to him last because he would empty them. He had a blunt sense of humor. He is survived by seven siblings: Mabel Torkelson of Glyndon, MN, David (Nancy) Ackerson, of Barnesville, MN, Marilyn Skiles of California, Joseph (Georgene) Ackerson of Barnesville, MN, Carol Jacobs of Fargo, ND, Sharon (John) Houge of Bismarck, ND, and Marlin Pete (Norma) Ackerson of Barneville, MN. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Lyle was preceded in death by his parents and one brother Ben.
