What a great person and friend to have had. Many great times remembered in Elma, Boy Scouts and just getting together for a few laughs. Jerry& Joanne
What a wonderful family and a great man!! I have many memories of Lyle. Much love to you all!
Patty, you and your family are in out thoughts and prayers. We have fond memories of Lyle. He was a great guy. Joe loved visiting with Lyle in the store. (Hopefully, you never needed the groceries right away. Sometimes their conversations lasted a while).
I have many fond memories of Lyle and of course they are of the outdoors camping and Scouting. His quiet leadership and caring manner was a true inspiration for all those who have served with him. May God’s Blessings be with the Streich family and to all Scouts.

Please accept our sincere condolences. May the words quoted from this song bring you a measure of comfort as it did for us.
”If a man should die, can he live again?
Hear the promise God has made:
He will call; The dead will answer.
They shall live at his command.
For he will have a longing
For the work of his own hand.
So have faith, and do not wonder,
For our God can make us stand.
And we shall live forever,
As the work of his own hand ”(Job 14:13-15)
