Davis was born July 10, 1933 to Richard L. and Bessie N. Davis of Thompson Springs, Utah. He was the youngest of eight children; Kenneth Davis, Louise Westwood, Neva Dalton, Irene Wilcox, Homer Davis, Raymond Davis and Richard Davis. Lyle attended school at the Thompson Springs School and Grand County Schools. He married Helen Meredith Goudelock on October 14, 1953. His son Lyle Winston “Pete” Davis was born in 1954, and son Timothy Reynold Davis was born in 1958.

Davis served in the United States Army from 1955 to 1957.

Davis always called Moab and the surrounding area his home. He always enjoyed being outdoors, tending a garden, and spending hours in the hills searching for rocks and fossils. He was a member of the Moab Elks Lodge and belonged to the F&AM Masonic Lodge in Grand County.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers, and sisters; sons Timothy Reynold Davis, Lyle Winston “Pete” Davis, and wife Helen Goudelock-Davis. He is survived by his granddaughter Aubrey Sage Davis, his much-loved pup and his “Best Pal,” Frances, and many beloved nieces and nephews.
