It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Lyle passed away peacefully on February 26, 2016 from complications that arose after heart surgery.

Lyle is survived by Donna, his loving wife and best friend of 43 years; his son Dean (Kirsten), his beloved grandchildren Emma and Andrew; his daughter Paula (Warren) Weber; numerous brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews. Lyle served as a teacher, administrator, and consultant in the Regina Catholic School Division for over 30 years. Following that, Lyle shared his talents at the University of Regina as a teacher in the Faculty of Education. Lyle also served as president of L*A*M*B* Consulting Inc., working internationally, nationally and provincially with Education for Sustainable Development and Climate Change. Lyle was also the Co-coordinator of the Regional Center of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development (RCE Saskatchewan). Most importantly, Lyle was a loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather. We are extremely grateful for the outpouring of support we have received from family, friends, colleagues, and all whose lives were touched by Lyle. The family wishes to express their appreciation for the excellent care provided by the OR, ICU, and other medical staff of the Pasqua Hospital and the Regina General Hospital.
