Lyle E. Morrow

August 11, 1933 — August 28, 2018

Lyle E. Morrow, age 85, of Lancaster, passed away on Tuesday, August 28, 2018, at his home. He was born on August 11, 1933, in Little Grant Township, the son of Archie and Genevieve (Griswold) Morrow. He graduated from Lancaster High School. Following graduation, Lyle was drafted into the United States Army. He served his country for two years. In 1956, Lyle was united in marriage to Karen Stout at the Little Brown Church in Nashua, IA. After their marriage, Lyle worked various jobs including farm work for Earl Frear. He purchased that farm in 1963 and several other area farms thereafter. In the mid 1970's, Lyle was the largest hog farmer in the state of Wisconsin. He had a passion for farming and loved the outdoors. He enjoyed spending time with his family and grandchildren on the farm and on Ranger rides, especially "whipping donuts." Lyle was a gourmet cook; his specialty was grilled cheese and pancakes. He was a generous man, always lending a hand to those in need.
