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.

Planted in the area of greatest need

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.

An iconic Kaiser figure! Always a smile, and a positive and encouraging attitude! The man with a 1000 keys?! His "jingle" will be greatly missed within the halls of our organization. Peace and prosperity to his family! Thank you Lyle for Your Service!

I met Lyle 13 years ago at Kaiser, our friendship started over a love for classic cars. Who would have known that this encounter would grow to a friendship that I held close to my heart, he was my work dad, he was my family. My sisters both started working at Kaiser and soon they considered him family also. My heart hurts knowing I will never hear him say “hey kiddo” and “love you”, hearing his key’s jingling, and mostly my Lyle hugs. Lyle you were truly one of my favorite people, a friend that I cherished deeply. Give my dad a ‘Lyle’ hug for me, love you my friend.
