Condolences for Lyle John Etgeton

  1. Jeff and Chris, You don’t know me, but I was touched to learn of your father passing. We went through grade and high school together as well as Sunday School and Church at St. John’s Lutheran in Fairbank. He was a good and faithful man and always had a smile and something to say with his good humor. So sorry for your loss.
