SALTILLO – Will Hoyle "Butch" Lyle, III died on September 2, 2020 after a month-long illness due to Covid-19. He was 67. Butch was born September 30, 1952 to Hoyle Lyle and Anna Frances Brooks Lyle. He graduated from Tupelo High School in 1970 and furthered his education at Mississippi State University, earning a degree in Business Finance. Butch spent his entire 45-year working life at People’s Bank and Trust Co/Renasant Bank where he was beloved by associates and all his customers. Butch truly lived his life to the fullest by dedicating his time and worship to Jesus. Other than his devotions as an active member of his church, CrossPointe Ministries, and before that, Oak Hill United Methodist Church, he enjoyed spending time with the love of his life, June Phillips Lyle, with whom he was married 48 beautiful years. Butch also loved his two granddaughters, Anna Claire and Sloane, endlessly and adored getting to be their “Pop.” He was an avid dog lover and cared about his dogs almost as much as he cared for his “AC” & Sloane. He was known for never meeting a stranger, always showing pure kindness, and his extensive knowledge of everything about The Rolling Stones.
