Dale Critchlow: ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ Actor Dies At 92

Dale Critchlow, the man who played Lyle in the Jared Hess film ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ died Friday at the age of 92, Deadline reports.

According to the report, the death of Dale Critchlow was announced by his family, where they revealed that the actor passed away at the MorningStar Senior Living facility in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He leaves behind four children.

Dale Critchlow became a town celebrity after playing Farmer Lyle in Napoleon Dynamite. He also made an appearance in Kurt Hale’s 2006 comedy, Church Bell. That was the last time he would appear in a film.

During a 2020 interview with EastIdahoNews.com, Critchlow talks about how he ended up with a role in the movie.

“My wife called Jared Hess’ mother and asked if one of her boys was there,” Critchlow said. “He came over, and he had a friend with him. I drove the truck out into the pasture, and the sheep came over. They grabbed those bucks and pushed them into the truck … and we got them out of there.”

The Napoleon Dynamite director subsequently contacted Critchlow and asked if he could be in a movie and the man agreed.

His status among the people of Preston, Idaho grew and soon passerby’s were asking for pictures, autographs when they saw him in public.

“I went to a wedding reception in Salt Lake, and my oldest son was just waiting for the reception to start. This guy comes by, and he said, ‘Hey, I seen you in a show!’ He took some pictures,” Critchlow recalled.

When asked what lessons he had learned over his lifetime, Critchlow thought for a moment and replied, “It pays to be a little daring but not too daring. When people help you, help them back if you can.”

Funeral details are being planned and have not been announced.
