Obituary for Lyle Dwaine Royston

Lyle Dwaine Royston was born in Salem, Oregon on July 31st, 1957 to parents Bob & Iris Royston. He passed away suddenly and unexpectedly of natural causes in his home in Dallas, Oregon on Monday, May 18th 2020 at the age of 62.

Lyle grew up the third of four children and was a graduate of McNary High School. He remained close to his siblings and their families throughout the years of his life.

He is survived by his daughter, Peggy Labberton and her husband Paul; his brother, Bob Royston; sisters, Caroline Royston and Patsy LeMay; granddaughter, Melina; grandsons, Luke and Eli and many other members of his extended family who loved him very much. He is preceded in death by his parents, Bob and Iris.

Lyle worked as an Operating Engineer at Kaiser Permanente in Salem, OR for the past 26 years. He was passionate about helping others and he loved his Kaiser Family.

He was looking forward to retiring later this year. He planned to spend time working on projects around his place, having adventures with his grandsons, learning to play the guitar, trying out new recipes and even sewing.

Lyle was a people person. He was great at striking up conversations with just about anyone and loved to toss around ideas with people. He took a genuine interest in people and was a great listener, trusted advisor and gave immeasurable amounts of love, support and encouragement to so many people.

Lyle was well known for his smile, hugs, and sense of humor. He was a devoted father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends and all who knew him.

A celebration of life will be held sometime this summer when conditions allow. Dallas Mortuary Tribute Center is caring for the family.

Lyle and I worked together for more than 2 decades and were oddly shirt tail relatives we found out at a funeral a few years back. He will be missed

Lyle was one of the most friendly co workers I have ever met. He had a wonderful personality and heart felt smile. He did not know the word NO. He was eager to help with anything he could. I believe he started about the same time I did and always brightened my day. Never a bad word to say no matter how hard the job or how long the day he was there. We talked about our retirements, he shared the excitement of plans he had for the future. I will miss you so much Lyle.

Lyle and I have been friends for 26 years. He was always eager to help with the various oddball things that I brought to the office--wood and granite slabs, giant burls, unicycles. A couple of years ago I asked him "Lyle, why did they redo our waiting area to look like a 70's Greyhound Bus station?" He replied "Yeah, I asked my Bosses the same question." I guess we thought alike.
