Lyle was born to Laura and Ed Schichner on February 22, 1938, in Chicago, Illinois. He recently shared his 31st wedding anniversary on December 12 with his wife, Judy Schichner.
After college, Lyle worked at United States Steel as a foreman and later was an architect at ACE and Stewart Detailing in Pine Grove, California, and Carson City, Nevada.
In 2003, he and Judy made Boerne, Texas, their home. In Boerne, he became a proud Mason, Shriner and in 2012 he was the grand master of the Boerne Mason Lodge Kendall No. 897. He had many happy years with his Mason family.
During his younger years, Lyle became a 5th degree black belt and instructor. He was very ambitious, adventurous and sure loved his seafood and buffets!
Over his adult years, he gathered quite the collection of trophies from darts, bowling, gold panning and karate/judo. He was a beautiful artist in stained glass and painting. While in his 60s Lyle learned how to play the violin. He was proud and excited to play for anyone that would listen.
Everyone that met Lyle loved him. His children grew up loving his adventures, storytelling and time spent with him and his sister’s children. He was very close to his sister and brother-in-law and his parents while they were alive.
Lyle is now in Heaven with his parents and his niece, Colleen. He is survived by his wife, Judy; his children, Laura Gray, Wendi Herpin and husband Frank, Lyle Schichner Jr. and wife Rachele, Scott Schichner and wife Amy, Coy Mckinney, Andera Kegg, John Kegg and Thomas Stevens; grandchildren Frank Herpin III, Lacy Rance, Victoria Schichner, Kendall Gray, Cole Herpin, Hope Schichner, Landon Schichner, Ava Schichner, John Kegg and Lucas Kegg; and his great-grandson, Lawson Rance.

Being with family is what made Lyle happy. He is very loved and will be missed by his family and friends.
Rest in peace Daddy, Pop, Grandpa Whitechin! See you in Heaven!
