SPEED, Lyle Martin

January 3, 1955 — April 21, 2024

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the loss of Lyle Martin Speed, who passed away while surrounded by family on April 21, 2024, at the age of 69.

Lyle is survived by his children, Todd (Donna) and Melissa; grandchildren, Kaylib, Brian, Luke, Devun, Myles, Andrew, Mason, Landon, and Asia; great-grandchildren, Searra and Charlie; as well as his brother, Mike. He now goes to join those who passed before him, including his brother, Kim; and two best friends, John and Mark.

Lyle was a remarkable man with a passion for drag racing and classic cars. Alongside his love for speed, he had an unwavering admiration for music, which he shared generously with those around him. Renowned for his captivating storytelling, Lyle’s anecdotes were as rich and colourful as his racing days. His intelligence and vast knowledge were evident in every conversation, yet he remained humble and approachable. Above all, Lyle was defined by his kindness, charisma, and selflessness, making him a beloved figure in his community. He embraced social interactions with open arms, welcoming everyone into his circle with genuine acceptance and warmth.

He will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate to know him.

Family and friend will each honour Lyle in their own ways. No formal service will be held.
