Carl J. Lyse Sr., age 69 of Clintonville, passed away Sunday, May 13, 2018 at Greentree Health & Rehabilitation Center, Clintonville.

Carl Joseph Lyse Sr. was born May 4, 1949 in Chicago, IL to the late Racine Marton & Rose Mary (Cheslak) Lyse. After attending high school in Elmwood Park, IL, Carl joined the U.S. Army working as a radio operator stateside during the Vietnam years. Following his honorable discharge from the military, Carl was united in marriage to Tina Kodidek in July of 1975; the couple was blessed with five children. He was employed by the railroad in Illinois for a number of years, was hired to “cow-sit,” or look after various farms while the families were away, and also worked as a tradesman/handyman doing electrical & construction work for clients. Carl was a life member of the Masonic Grand Lodge of Illinois, as well as the Cook County Beija-Medinah Shriners. He enjoyed fishing and traveling up north to take in the autumn colors. Anyone who knew Carl could tell you that he will be remembered as a “jack-of-all-trades” who could fix anything, and that he was beloved for his extreme sense of humor.
