Lyle Preston Hald, 87, passed away on January 11, 2018 at the Chadron Community Hospital. Lyle was born December 1, 1930 in rural Oelrichs SD and lived in the Oelrichs area for the majority of his life, moving to Chadron NE in 2017. He was the son of Carl Peterson Hald Sr and Sara Mercedes Newman Hald. He completed grade school in Oelrichs, then attended 2 years at Chadron Prep School. Lyle graduated from Oelrichs High School in 1949.
Lyle was a Rancher south of Oelrichs and loved the life of a cattleman. Springtime with green grass and baby calves was a favorite time of year for him. This Spring, he'll be watching over calving season from his view in heaven. Lyle enjoyed our family cookouts and spending time with family and friends.
Lyle was President of the Slim Butte Pipe Line when it was formed in 1981. Lyle was a member of the Pioneer Cooperative Grazing Association for many years and served on the Board of Directors for 17 years. He spent many hours driving pastures and taking pictures so he could record grass growth.
He is survived by brothers Carl Jr (Bonnie) of Chadron NE and Arnold (Betty) of Hot Springs SD, many nieces, nephews and friends. He was preceded in death by his father Carl Sr, mother Sara Newman, brothers Guilford and John, sisters Olivan Masek and Rose Willoughby, niece Kristena Casteel, nephew-in-law James Casteel.
The funeral service will be held on January 19th at 2 PM at the Prairie View Methodist Church near Smithwick SD.
