November 27, 1928 – Abernethy, Saskatchewan
February 7, 2015 – Calgary, Alberta
Lyall passed away peacefully in his sleep February 7, 2015.
Lyall grew up on the farm that his great grandparents homesteaded in the Kenlis Saskatchewan area. He married Hazel Flett of Fort Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan in November, 1951 and worked as an equipment salesman in Swift Current and Alberta. Lyall and Hazel enjoyed their home on the Saddle and Sirloin acreage in Bragg Creek for 35 years before moving to Cochrane, Alberta. They enjoyed travelling and spent many winters in Arizona where they developed many lasting friendships. Lyall will be remembered for his outgoing personality, his willingness to help friends and neighbors and his love of red wine and playing crib. He won the last game he played while in the hospital.
Lyall is survived by his brother Wes (Rita) and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by Hazel, his loving wife of 58 years (2010); his parents George and Anne; and his sister Lillian Seed (Bruce).
Lyall’s ashes will be interred in the family plot in the Kenlis Cemetery. A Gathering to Celebrate Lyall’s Life will be held in the spring when all the snow birds are back home.
