Jack Lyle died peacefully in his home in Springfield, NH on June 24, 2017 at the age of 88. Jack and his wife, Cheryl Cummer have been long-time land conservation supporters and preserved their family homestead in Mandarin, Florida on the St. Johns River through a conservation easement. With this in their history and conservation on their mind, they decided to preserve their family land in Springfield, NH through Ausbon Sargent. The Springfield property represents 26 acres of fields and forest on both sides of Nichols Hill Road and offers nice views of Croydon from the heights of their land.
Jack was known for his scholarship and his love for teaching. He authored many books and articles and served on numerous boards such as the Hawaii Opera Theater, Young Audiences of Massachusetts, and Boston Lyric Opera. Ausbon Sargent is pleased to have the memory of Jack last forever through the Cummer-Lyle Conservation Easement in Springfield.
