Lyle George Comstock was born September 14, 1939 in Lincoln, Nebraska to Franklin LeRoy Comstock and Mildred (Pilfold) Comstock.  Lyle grew up in Greenwood, Nebraska and graduated from Greenwood High school at the age of 16.  He was awarded the Regents Scholarship to the University of Nebraska where he graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering. He also received his professional engineer’s license in North Carolina. Lyle served in the army from 1961 to 1964.  He then went to work for the US Army Corps of Engineers in Omaha. During his career, Lyle worked in various locations including Omaha, Colorado, Italy, Turkey, Germany, Virginia and California.   On December 27, 1964 he was united in marriage with Kathryn Grieninger.  Unto this union were born two sons, Shawn Patrick and Timothy Andrew.

Lyle loved sports.  For many years, he coached his sons’ Little League baseball and basketball teams.  Lyle followed Nebraska Cornhusker sports no matter where he lived.  He also enjoyed genealogy and had traced the family tree back many years.  He did volunteer work for the Family History Center in California, as well as the Blood Bank, Crippled Children’s Association, High Desert Federal Credit Union, and the Federal Manager’s Association.  Once he retired from the Federal Government in 1992, he taught computer science at the Community College in Victorville, California.
