His grandfather rode on horseback in the Oklahoma Land Rush and his mother taught in a one room school house.

Lyle earned a PHD in animal nutrition from Iowa State University and had worked at Supersweet in New Ulm, MN where he met his wife Sandy on a blind date. He and Sandy moved to Libertyville, IL in 1967 where he became the Vice President of Allied Mills that later became Continental Grain Company.
