It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Lyle H. Flach, aged 78, on March 9, 2024, with his family by his side. Born on March 17, 1945, Lyle was born to a successful farm family in Warrensburg, IL. He was the fifth of five children of Herman Rudolph and Opal (Harbarger) Flach. He married Kathy Jo Eyre on December 23, 1996 and she survives.

Lyle was baptized a Christian and had a deep love for his Savior, Jesus Christ. He was a long-time, active member of Calvary Church.

Lyle will be remembered for his extensive contributions in the cattle industry including his work as an auctioneer, love for horse racing, passion for Illini basketball, and devotion to his family.
