Lyle Gene Joseph

January 26, 1951 — March 30, 2024

Fillmore, UT/ Carlin, NV

Lyle Gene Joseph 73 of Fillmore, Ut and formerly of Carlin, NV passed away peacefully on March 30th, 2024 with his loving family by his side.

Lyle was born January 26th, 1951 to George and Lois (Broin) Joseph in Crookston, MN. Lyle was the 4th of 8 children.

He attended school in Crookston and was a member of the class of 1969. Lyle received a mechanical degree from South Carolina.

In 1987, Lyle married the love of his life, Debra Sykes. Together they raised 5 children: Shannon, Nikki, Bobby, Allen and Charles. In 1987, Lyle and his family moved to Winnemucca, Nevada where Lyle worked for TIC. In 1994, he started his work journey with Ames Construction until his retirement in July 2018. Along this journey Lyle developed a long list of life time friends. During his time with Ames, he held numerous roles, his most recent and most favorite was being a Heavy Equipment Hauler. Lyle never missed an opportunity to let the ladies in the office know how much he appreciated them. Any time Debbie made Peanut Brittle or Anise candy, he made sure to bring them some. Lyle loved to work on anything mechanical and he loved to travel to see family. Family was the number 1 thing to Lyle and every chance he got to see them, he took it. Lyle loved to spoil his grandkids and great-grandkids. The sparkle that shined through his eyes when his grandkids walked in the door was priceless. Lyle and Debbie were devoted to each other and extremely proud of their kids, grandkids and great grandkids. His hugs, laughter and teasing will play a huge part in the way they will always remember their dad and grandpa.

Lyle is survived by his rock, best friend and the love of his life of 37 years, Debbie, their children, Shannon (Allen) Sykes, Little Falls, MN, Nikki (Blake) Turner, Fillmore, UT, Bobby (Kristin) Joseph, Elko, NV, Allen (Brenda) Joseph, Deer River, MN, and Charles Joseph of Crookston, MN, 16 grandkids and 17 great grandkids. He is also survived by his siblings, George Jr. (Mary) Joseph, Mike Joseph, Cheryl (Kenneth) Bingham all of Crookston, MN, Barb Holter, Fernley, NV, Jean (Sid) Chambless, Elko, NV and Robert Joseph of Carlin, NV as well as many extended family members.

Lyle was preceded in death by his parents, infant sister, JoAnn, his In-laws Clarence (Coon) and Vivian Sykes and his special dogs, Baby, Tipper, Sparky and Pocket Rocket.

The family would like to thank Dr. Craig Grose, Melissa Adams, Dustin Kunz and all the staff at the Huntsman's Cancer Center for all the exceptional care they gave to our husband, dad and grandpa.

A celebration of life will be held on 4/2/2024 with close family and friends.
