We Remember

MCKAY, Lyle Alexander

Passed away suddenly on May 4, 2012 at the age of 65 with his family at his side. Lyle will be greatly missed by his daughter and best friend Tami (Hodgins) and her husband Jim, by his loving and caring brother Elwood and by his wonderful sister-in-law Fern.  Predeceased by his parents Donald and Emma McKay, his brother Marvin and great niece Kaileigh.  Survived by his 4 grandchildren, Kevin, Robert, Taylor and Colton and by his nieces and nephews.

Lyle’s passion in life was driving truck. He will also be remembered for the fact he could never say no, he loved getting on the 2-way radio and telling you what he thought, whether it was good or bad.  Lyle had made many friends and touched many who knew him in his trucking career.  A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, May 8th at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, 938 – 28th Avenue West, Vancouver, BC, V5Z 4H4.

      Hi Kim,
      Sorry to hear about your DAD! I will always remember him for the trips he took Craig, my mom and I on to Vancouver where we went to the PNE the 1st and only time I went to it, as well as the trip to Prince George for Christmas one year. I also enjoyed the few times I got up way to early and went to work with him in the logging truck.
      I hope you are doing well haven’t seen you in a few years. Take care!!

    We are unable to attend the services on Tuesday but would like to convey our most sincere condonences to Lyles family. We moved to Kelowna in 1978 and when I went to apply for a job at Petches, Lyle was the first trucker that I met. We liked each other immediately and have been friends ever since. He also helped us move into our home here. We bought the beer and Lyle brought a couple of guys to help. He was a great friend and we all will miss him very much. We are thinking of the family in this very sad time.
