June 15, 1935 – November 25, 2017

It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of husband, father, grandfather, and friend, Harry Lyle. Harry passed away peacefully at Carman Memorial Hospital surrounded by family, on Saturday, November 25, 2017.

Harry is survived by Shirley (Major), his wife of 59 years; children Gerald (Debbie), Carol (Larry), Kevin (Janice), and Dwayne (Kaeleigh); grandchildren Kyra, Sarah, Taysen, Raya; Chad (Brandi), Jordan (Andrea); sisters Vera Berthiaume (Bill), Beth Cram, and many other family members.

Harry is predeceased by his parents, Allan and Alice (Lowry); brother-in-law Doug Cram; father and mother-in-law Vern and Nellie Major. Harry was born in Miami, Manitoba on June 15, 1935.

Harry started his lifelong career with Manitoba Pool Elevators as a “hired hand” in Deloraine, Somerset, and Morden. He married Shirley Major on October 18, 1958. Harry became a grain buyer for Manitoba Pool 1959 in Tyndall where Harry and Shirley lived and began their family, until 1964. The young Lyle family then moved to Brunkild, where Harry continued working for Manitoba Pool until 1968, when Harry accepted the manager position in Mather, Manitoba. Harry and Shirley lived and raised their family in Mather for 45 years, until the grain elevator closed in 1995.

Although Harry’s life work was spent in the grain elevator, he was a farmer in his heart. He loved his vegetable garden and spent hours tending to his vegetables, ensuring a harvest which he proudly shared with his grown children, neighbors, friends, and food bank. Harry enjoyed his time in the field, even after he retired he helped local farmers with seeding and harvest.

Harry was a true outdoorsman and found joy in just strolling in nature and listening to all of nature’s sounds, and seeing all the wildlife. He relished in his fishing, camping, and canoe trips and passed this passion on to his children.  Harry was also a strong supporter of the local sports teams as a coach, an official and as a fan.

Hobbies were also a passion for Harry.  For many years he was a photographer travelling to many communities in Manitoba.  He was also a lover of wood working and spent many hours perfecting a single project.

Harry was a strong supporter of the community ranging from coaching a team, making and maintaining an ice surface, grooming the ball diamonds, teachings hunters safety and photography.  Serving of food or washing dishes at the annual fall supper.  He held a variety of positions on numerous boards.

Harry you will be missed.

Dad we will miss you.

We are deeply grateful to the staff at Carman Hospital for their loving care that they gave Harry during his short stay and special thank you to Dr. Villeda.

A service will be held on Friday, December 1, 2017 at 2:00 at Carman United Church. In lieu of flowers donations can be made Carman Palliative Care Program, Boyne Lodge, Carman or the MS Society of Manitoba.
