  14. I’ll always remember “Pyle,” as his dad used to call him, as the kid with a twinkle in his eye and a mischievous grin. I didn’t get to see much of him as an adult, but I know he was a thoughtful, generous and helpful son to Paul and Rachel. To his heartbroken siblings Polly, Gerard, Ron, Cheryl and Dwayne, I send my sincerest condolences.

  18. Cheryl since hearing the news that Lyle was going to be in hospice care and then the news from Thursday I was saddened to know that the journey was nearing the end. The comfort I took in that news was the knowledge that Lyle was cocooned in love. So many have rallied to surround him, Sandra and the whole family in love, prayers and random acts to support all of you. Thank you to you, Sandra and the whole family for sharing Lyle with the world. The emptiness at this time I am certain is deep as you and the family pull even tighter together to prepare to celebrate Lyle’s life and the impact he had near and far. I am sending you and the whole family my prayers, my love and my support in any way that I can.

    Sincere sympathy to Sandra, Paul & family.
    They always say…”Only the good dye young”. Lyle was one of those good guys.
    He looked shy but watch out. He enjoyed life and found love, his wife, Sandra.
    May he find eternal happiness on his journey. I know his Mom, Rachel will be
    waiting to greet him with open arms. Lyle was the one who had the privilege of
    placing his Mother’s ashes at the grave site. One would never have thought he would be the next family member to pass, the baby.
    May the good times remind us that Lyle is not far away, but forever in our hearts.
    We don’t know the reason for Lyle’s passing so young but God knows the reason.

    May you rest in peace Lyle.

    It has been an honour to part of Lyle’s life! Growing up with Lyle in a small town of Montmartre, we had so many laughs, fun and freedom!! We had many bush fires together, raided gardens, snuck into bars under age and even tried to skip school but could never do that since his mom was truly the boss of the school! It is hard to believe Lyle is gone! His memories will be in our hearts forever. With deepest sympathy, Lisa.

  62. I experienced my first warm vacation with Lyle many years ago for 14 days in Cuba. I loved his free spirit and sense of adventure. I will never forget how he was constantly challenged and went undefeated on the resort while hobbling around the ping pong table with plates and pins in his leg from a skiing injury. I admired him greatly and will never forget how he always made me smile. My condolences to Lyle’s family and loved ones. He will be missed by all.
