Retired North Dakota State University ag research technician Lyle Lindberg passed away on January 22, 2021, in Fargo, ND.

Lindberg was hired by the Department of Plant Sciences in 1967 as an ag research technician in the flax and soybean breeding programs. When the late Dr. James Hammond was hired to lead the flax program, Lindberg transitioned to a full-time position in flax. 

Hammond also became the department information technology support person, and Lindberg assisted him by assembling computers. After retiring in 2008, Lindberg continued working part-time in computer support. His advice for computer troubleshooting was, “If you are having trouble with your computer, shut it off and turn it back on. Many times, it works!”

Combining his full-time and part-time work, Lindberg had 50 years of service at NDSU.

Lindberg was well known for his interest in refurbishing classic cars and his famous Halloween displays. He was a kind, caring, and cheerful person and will be greatly missed.
