In the late 1970s while Waggoner was still hard at work on sets, he launched Star Waggons out of Sylmar, California. "I can go anywhere in the USA, and sometimes the world, and people walking down the street will stop me and say, 'Hey, Lyle, how are you?' That, for me, is such a marvelous advantage and a situation that people in most other industries rarely find themselves in".

He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Sharon; his two sons, Jason and Beau; and his four beloved grandchildren.

"When I was on Wonder Woman, [the producers] gave me a very nice motor home they had rented from some private owner in the Valley", he said in an interview with Los Angeles magazine.
