Rudolph “Lyle” Larson of Great Falls passed away on September 10, 2019, of natural causes at Peace Hospice.
Lyle was born on December 2, 1929, in Windham, MT to Rudy and Martha Larson.
He attended school in Windham through junior high school and then graduated high school from Stanford, MT in 1947. After graduation, he was drafted into the Army. While serving, his high school sweetheart, Beryl Reed, followed him to Virginia where they got hitched on December 23, 1950.
When he completed his military assignment, they returned to Montana, where he attended Radio and Television repair school. He went on to work at Mountain Bell as a PBX switchboard technician, retiring at the age of 56. He was very proud of the fact that he was retired for more years than he worked.
Dad’s hobby was restoring antique cars, which was his true passion. Retirement gave him more time to pursue that hobby.
There will be a celebration of life for dad on Sunday, September 22, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. at the Eagles Manor.
