Obituary for JERRY MIKE LILE

Mike longed to be a true cowboy and a true cowboy he was. He made a lifetime of friends on his rodeo circuit. He always said “if he had a good horse, a good saddle, and a good pair of boots, life was good” He was a good roper and good hunter, and nothing pleased him more that teaching and sharing these values and qualities to his kids and grandkids.

He is survived by his wife, Judy; sons, Lance Lile and Jerry Davenport(Candy); daughters, Christina Schatzer (Tim), Adrean Ernst (Zak), and Kelli Langley (David); his mother, Avon; a sister, Jan Elmore; and brothers, Larry and Matt Lile. He is also survived by many grandchildren Aleeyah, Jordan, Arica, Taylor, Gracie, Lacey, Jacob, Nick, Clay, Holden, Dakota, Wyatt, Aidyn, Axel, and Korabelle; and great grandchildren, Kalaina, Rhett, and Zane.
