Obituary for Lyle Landkammer

Lyle Landkammer passed away Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018, at Tri-State Memorial Hospital in Clarkston, from age-related illness. Lyle was the youngest of three children born to Edward and Rosrene (Sura) Landkammer on Sept. 17, 1935, in Pomeroy. He attended Catholic school and graduated from Pomeroy High School in 1953.

After graduation, Lyle worked for various local farmers before serving in the U.S. Army at Fort Lewis from 1958 to 1960. After his service, he worked for Pomeroy Seed and Pomeroy Warehouse and Feed until taking over the family farm from his father in 1972, where he worked until retirement in 2000.

Lyle married his wife, Judy, on his birthday in 1966, and they had four children: Kurt, Holly, Rose and Coni. Lyle and Judy recently celebrated their 52nd wedding anniversary. In his younger years, Lyle enjoyed exploring the backcountry on his Honda trail bike. He was an excellent marksman and did a lot of hunting — he always got his deer and would say it was just a lucky shot. Lyle loved spending time with his family and enjoyed get-togethers with the class of 1953. He was a great storyteller who liked to go for drives in the country to look at the farm ground. He was a lifetime member of the Eastern Washington Ag Museum, the National Rifle Association, Pleasant Grove Grange, Holy Rosary Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus.

Lyle is survived by his wife, Judy; son Kurt (Cindy); daughters Holly (Kipp) Meyer, Rose (Ed) Guzman and Coni Landkammer. Also, his grandchildren, Cody and Rachel Meyer and Austin and Brandon Landkammer; brother Vernon and sister-in-law Doris Landkammer; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Alvin.

Services will take place at 11 a.m. Monday at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Pomeroy with a rosary preceding the service at 10:30 a.m. A graveside service will follow at Holy Rosary Cemetery. Father Steve Werner will officiate. Merchant Funeral Home of Clarkston is in charge of arrangements.
