Lyndle Fesler Jr. was a great hard working father and married Joann Gregory for 17 years before their divorce. Lyndle never remarried teaching his sons, saying "Marriage is Forever." Lyndle stayed friends with Joann through-out his life, and stayed as a constant presence in his children's lives and loved all his grandchildren, often wearing a T-shirt, "World's Best Grandpa."
Lyndle was a man of meager means, who sought his wealth in the relationship with his family and would often set watching them in quiet reflection soaking in the time he shared with them.
He leaves this earth a war hero to his sons, and an avid fisherman teaching his boys the importance of family time by campfire and a fishing pole. We love you dad, until we see you in Heaven and join you by the campfire.
