Obituary for Lester Dennis Pyle

Home Depot lost its best customer on April 9th when Lester Dennis Pyle’s earthly building permit got denied. Les never met a tool he didn’t like and even though he could build and repair most everything from houses to airplanes, he found no tool could repair his aggressive brain cancer. There is a good chance that you or someone you know had a steel building built by Les. There is a greater chance that you or someone you know had a conversation with him. Or should we say, stood and listened as he talked. Les loved to talk and seeing and visiting with people was his favorite thing to do. Les was proud to serve his country in the Vietnam War as a crew chief on a helicopter. It was during this time that he developed a love of flying and building airplanes. Les tried to serve his community and felt a civic duty to help even though most of his actions were anonymous. He is survived by wife Mary, daughter Kelsey Pyle, son-in-law Jon Tatum, mother-in-law Helen Waller, brothers Fred Pyle & Randolph Melton, sisters Joyce Jones, Carol Hamm, Jody Taylor & Freda Kalantar, cats Dolly & Domino, dogs Reba & Boy, and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. He was predeceased by father-in-law Wesley Waller, brothers Dale Melton, George Montgomery & Leon Pyle, and mother Melvina Mae Melton.
