Lyle Edmond Delfosse, Lt. Col. (Ret.), aged 87, of Pasadena, Maryland, passed away on October 4, 2018 at 11:00 while resting peacefully at the Chesapeake Hospice Center and accompanied by his family. Lyle was born July 24, 1931, in Tacoma Washington to John and Adelaide Delfosse.

Among his many commendations for his service, Lyle was awarded the Silver Star and Distinguished Flying Cross (with a combat V for valor) for his bravery in the face of enemy fire during his service in the Vietnam War. After his retirement from active duty, and from 1974 until 2007, Lyle opened, owned and operated a custom woodcraft business building beautiful, elegant wood furniture for homes throughout the Baltimore/Washington area. Lyle is survived by Chris, his wife of 61 years, his two sisters Isabelle and Janine, his five children Virginia, Diane, Erik, Karen, and Craig. In addition, Lyle is remembered by his twelve grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Lyle’s life was a symbol of faith and service for all who knew him.
