June 25, 1959 – Balcarres, Saskatchewan
November 16, 2014 – Calgary, AB
Lyall Lyster, beloved husband of Miche Lyster of Calgary, passed away on Sunday, November 16, 2014 at the age of 55 years.
Lyall – a dedicated husband, amazing dad, cool uncle, compassionate brother, and a loving son. He was true to himself always. He knew what mattered and focused on what counts. He showed respect and treated others with dignity. His quiet wisdom and nonjudgmental ways guided many through thick and thin.
Throughout Lyall’s childhood, he spent many hours outdoors at the farm, where his love of nature and animals was nurtured.
As a young man, he moved to Calgary, where he met and married the love of his life. Two beautiful sons were soon part of this French-Irish connection. These boys were gifted with having a stay-at- home dad during the early years of their lives. His focus and commitment to them remained, and his wisdom and strength is now a deep and integral part of their being.
Another significant part of Lyall’s life was at Froebel School. It was there that Lyall’s natural gifts impacted and benefitted hundreds of children.
Lyall had a calming presence, an intuitive understanding, and an ability to take change of the situation. These qualities were integral in the care he provided so selflessly for both his parents as they aged. Lyall was the steady hand and the rock that we all leaned on.
