Steve Lyles Memorial 

On Tuesday, May 28th, Steve Lyles unexpectedly passed away.

For the last 20+ years, Steve was an active leader and respected varsity basketball referee. Steve was also the current President of the Wisconsin Basketball Officials Association. 

Steve is survived by his loving wife of 20 years, Kari, and two daughters whom he adored, Megan and Julia. He was a highly involved parent who loved supporting his girls in their activities from dance , cross country, soccer and track meets. He worked for Journal Communications for 24 years and most recently was Vice President of Sales for Liturgical Publications, Inc. in New Berlin.  

The WBOA Board has set up this GoFundMe page to make a donation to Steve's family for the purpose of his daughters' future education (per the family's wishes).
