Nyle Vaughn Tribble, D.C.
Aug. 19, 1921 June 19, 2009
A remembrance of Nyle Tribble’s life will be held at 1 p.m. July 3 at the Sheriff’s Posse Grounds at 19130 Rawhide Rd., Jamestown, Calif.
Nyle Tribble, a long-time Sonora resident, was born in La Grange, Calif., the only son of Webb and Ruth Tribble. He attended schools in Turlock and graduated from Turlock High School in 1939. He married Bette Berger in 1942.
In his younger years, he was an accomplished diver and would do exhibition diving at the Olympic Club in San Francisco. In 1942, Nyle was serving in a U.S. Army hospital in Oregon during World War II. Nyle and Bette raised their four sons, Vaughn, Gregory, Bryan, and Patrick, in Turlock.  
Nyle Tribble attended chiropractic school at the California College of Chiropractic in Oakland and received his license in 1951. He opened a chiropractic office in Turlock the same year, treating neck, back, and other kinds of pain with Specific Chiropractic, which involves adjustment to the Atlas vertebrae only. Using this method, Dr. Tribble drew, and successfully treated clients from around the world for nearly 70 years. After commuting from Sonora to Turlock since 1966, he sold his local practice in 2001 and opened up a Sonora office behind his home.
Nyle is survived by his widow, Deanna of Sonora; sons and daughter-in-laws, Vaughn and Susan Tribble of Murphy’s, Greg and Joan Tribble of Chico, Bryan and Deborah Tribble of Turlock, Patrick and Gerry Tribble of San Rafael; nine grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.  
He is preceded in death by Bette Tribble, who passed away in 1969; his sister, Opal Tribble; his second wife, Ruth, who passed away in December 2001; and grandson, Brennan, who passed away in 2001.
