Obituary of Lyle Marshall
Lyle unexpectedly passed away August 9, 2019 in St. Luke’s Hospital, surrounded by family and friends. Affectionately known as “Boots/ Bootsie”, for his cowboy boots back in the day. Lyle was born May 4, 1960 in Duluth to Lyle and Judith (Amotozio) Marshall.
He graduated from Hermantown High School in 1978. Boots has been employed at St. Luke’s Hospital since 1977 as a Storeroom Coordinator, in the Hospitality Dept. Boots had a love for sports, his favorite teams being Minnesota Vikings, Minnesota Twins, and Minnesota Wild. He was an avid collector of sport memorabilia. Boots took great pride in his sports card and jersey collection. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, shooting, and anything outdoors. Boots loved spending time with his family, at the family cabin, Lake Albert. He had a great sense of humor, and enjoyed making people laugh. Boots was a very proud and protective father. He had earned the name “Lyle 5-0” from his children, as he was always “patrolling” his children, ensuring they were safe and not spending money, well into their adult lives. Boots would listen to his police scanner in the evening- and had over heard his daughter being pulled over at one point through the police scanner, he always knew when his daughters would catch trouble!
Boots was survived by his significant other, Julie Patton; children, twin daughters, Alaina (Kody Cooke) Marshall and Mariah (Jeff Lemire) Marshall, MaryAnne (Tom Telgenhoff) Patton and Justin (Samantha Vetrone) Velander. He will also be dearly missed by his grandchildren, Alexis, Brayden, Matthew, Destiny, Holden, Bentley, Bennett and Brooklyn; sisters, Vickie (Lonny) Anderson and Jalyn (Tom) Reynolds; and many more family and friends.
Family would like to extend a heart felt thank you to St. Luke’s staff in the ER, ICU, and Quint 8 Rescue A shift- for all the great care and support. Gathering of family and friends from 2 p.m until the 3 p.m memorial service Friday, August 16th in the Cremation Society of Minnesota Chapel, 4100 Grand Ave., Duluth.
