Long-time Jackson resident Lyle Waggoner passed away last week after battling cancer. He was 84.

His family provided the following.

Lyle and his wife Sharon first came to Jackson in the mid 1980s to participate in the Community Entry Services Charity Ski events with Connie Stevens. They fell in love with the town, its people and its lifestyle. They decided to make it their full-time home in 1999, and dove deep into the town’s charities and social events. Lyle and his “million dollar smile” could often be seen in the many shops and restaurants around town, always quick to offer a joke and make someone’s day.
