Lyle was born in Montreal on January 12, 1947 and grew up in P.EI. He joined the RCAF and served in Bagotville and Comox. During his years on the north end of Vancouver Island he worked a variety of jobs. He owned two Radio Shack stores, one in Campbell River and another in Port McNeill. Lyle held many different sales positions throughout the years and made many friends along the way. He had many passions in life; travelling, fishing, music, cars, flying and reading. He was a real computer guy and liked to keep up with the latest in technology. He spoke fondly of his family in P.E.I . and enjoyed sharing stories of his adventures both on the east coast as well as the west coast.
He left us much too soon and will be forever missed by his children, grandchildren, family, close friends and all who knew him. Lyle would want us to lift a glass in a toast to celebrate his life, listen to one of his favourite songs, and to continue sharing the fond memories that he left with each one of us.
