Verne Frederick Lytle, age 79 of Sterling Heights, died Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at home surrounded by his loved ones. He was born June 24, 1938 in Detroit, son of the late Charles and the late Edna (nee: Jubenville) Lytle. Verne was the beloved husband of 59 years to Halina (nee: Jachimowicz) Lytle.

At 23 years old, with our allies being challenged, Verne answered our country's call to duty with pride and patriotism and became a soldier in our U.S. Army. Entering into service on December 4, 1961, Verne received his honorable discharge on December 3, 1963 following his 2 year commitment. So it is, with thanks and praise from a grateful nation, we honor Verne for the sacrifices made and his willingness to stand in harm's way for preservation's cause.

Like many Michigander's back in the day, Verne's career path began by joining the throngs of those who opted for the automotive industry as he found employment with the Chrysler Corporation. For the next 15 years, he was an integral part of helping to keep the roads filled with fine examples from the heart of the Motor Capital of the world. Then one day, Verne's career aspirations took a different path when he accepted a position with the giant in the field of business machines, Xerox. It is there he would spend the next 25 years of employment extending his utmost in dedicated service until finally accepting his well-deserved retirement.

Verne was an extremely hard worker who always strove to do his best, and thrived on a job well done. But he also knew how to step away from work and attain a bit of balance in life by enjoying some of his favorite pastimes. One of these was fishing and Verne was truly an avid angler. Always in search of the "Big One,"…he could easily find the sweet serenity of casting his line out at a favorite fishing hole and simply basking in the peacefulness of the sport. Another answer to seeking that balance came in the form golf, a sport he spent countless hours looking for that elusive "Hole-in-One."

But of all that brought Verne the greatest joy, spending time at the family cottage up north was right there at the top of the list. Talk about peacefulness and serenity, he had that in spades as he soaked up the beauty and splendor of Michigan's Up North Experience. Both he and Halina created many wonderful memories at the cottage, especially those enjoyed in the summers as they shared their little piece of Heaven together.

A private ceremony, with Military Honors, will be held at a later date at Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, Michigan.
