Lyle Joseph Schneider was born at home in Mt. Carmel on February 19, 1936 to Ernie and Rosina (Nowatzki) Schneider. He grew up and attended country school in the Mt. Carmel area. He was united in marriage to Carole Hutchison at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Walhalla on September 11, 1959. He entered the US Army and served until being honorably discharged in 1962.  He and Carole made their home in Langdon where Lyle worked for C.L. Beiers. He later went in to partnership with Jerry Beiers at Langdon Plumbing & Heating which he eventually purchased in 1978. He retired but continued helping people when needed. He was a farmer at heart and loved being out in the country. He enjoyed gardening, canning, cooking, and hunting. He was a social person who loved to visit and didn’t like missing his cup of coffee up at the Amoco every morning. He especially looked forward to spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Surviving Lyle are his wife, Carole, of Langdon; children: Wanda (Peter) Behling of Grand Forks,  Chris of Langdon, Craig (Arlene Davidson) of Grand Forks, Lisa of Minot, and Corey (Nicole Lafferty) of Langdon; grandchildren: Kyle, Cody, Allison, Eric, Samantha (Travis), Brittney (Jamie), Lacey, Shae, and Rachelle (Danny); 14 great-grandchildren; sister Joanne (Wilbur) McGauvran; sisters-in-law Mary Schneider and Rita Schneider; and many nieces, nephews and relatives.

He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings: Willeta (Lowell) Peterson, Lester, Clarence, Arnold, and Merlin (Luverne).
