Obituary of Lyle Blattert

Lyle Blattert passed away peacefully on February 11, 2024 at the age of 83 in Peoria, Arizona.

Lyle was a kind and thoughtful soul and will be missed and remembered by many lives he touched. He will be remembered for all the heart he shared with his friends and family. He truly loved each of them, and if you knew him, you knew it. When his time came, he carried himself with dignity, strength, and full of love for those who went before him. He will be missed dearly.

Born September 27, 1940, to Albert and Rose Blattert, Lyle lived his young life in Stanton, Nebraska and graduated from Wayne State College with a double major in physics and chemistry in 1963.  Lyle is survived by his wife of 58 ½ years Roberta (Bobbie), daughter Jodi, sister Genevieve McMahon and 5 nieces and nephews.  He is predeceased by his parents and brother Dale.

Lyle was strong willed and stubborn at times, but he also had an enormous heart and wonderful sense of humor.  He was a keen sportsman who enjoyed fishing and hunting and later an avid animal enthusiast, supporting and adopting homeless four-legged creatures.  He was clever and full to the brim with knowledge gained though all his life experiences. 

After graduating from Wayne State College, he was a high school physical sciences teacher along with football, wrestling, and golf coach at Howells high school in Nebraska and Mt Horeb high school in Wisconsin.  Lyle left teaching to embark on a 43-year career in chemical and equipment sales and while covering vast territories he discovered a passion for travelling.

Lyle was a fun spirited soul that enjoyed “tinkering” on projects and was truly an artist with an engineering flare. He was known for creating elaborate and beautiful Christmas décor for family each year (there were a lot of deer).  His favorite places were the Rocky Mountains and a good Mexican restaurant with a Margarita in hand.

Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers for Lyle and the Blattert family!  Lyle was a beautiful person inside and out.  His smile was so stunning, it would light up the whole room.  He cared deeply for the people around him, as he was so kind and passionate.  He will be forever missed.   Until we meet again.  

As an expression of his passion for animal shelters and rescue agencies, memorial contributions may be sent to Four Paws Rescue,
