Obituary for Lyle C. Enstrom

Lyle Carl Enstrom was born to Carl and Annie (Johnson) Enstrom January 19, 1928 on the family farm west of Oakland, Nebraska. He passed away June 17, 2019 at age 91, while residing at Pathfinder Place in Fremont, Nebraska.

Lyle was baptized and confirmed at Westside Methodist Church, where he attended until its closing.

He received his elementary education at District 14 in Cuming county and graduated from Oakland High School in 1945. He was a member of the 1945 state runner-up basketball team.

Lyle was drafted into the Army on March 27, 1951 and honorably discharged on March 3, 1953. While serving in the 6th Armored division, Company C, 2nd Platoon, he acquired many Army buddies. He later was a member of the VFW and American Legion.

On October 1, 1953 Lyle married Dorothy Hermelbracht at Westside Methodist Church. The couple raised three children, Kathy, Daniel, and Dean.

Lyle was an active member of his church. He held a number of offices and participated in Methodist Men, Male Quartet, Westside softball team, Cemetery board, and MYF leader to name a few. He even found time to be a District 14 school board member, help with 4-H electric club, and participate on bowling teams.

For Lyle, as a farmer, it wasn’t how many acres he farmed, it was how well he farmed the acres he had. That’s what was important to him. He also took pride in raising cattle and hogs.

Lyle and Dorothy moved to Fremont in 1997. He was a greens keeper and 20-year Wal-Mart employee.

He took great pleasure in attending the activities of his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
