With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Lyle Bernard Cook on November 7, 2020.
Dad was born to Helen and Wilfred Cook on August 31, 1929. His parents raised Dad and his brothers in and around Hastings, Ontario. After the passing of his mother, he left home looking for work and ended up in Winnipeg, where he met his wife Olga, and in time began working for the City of Winnipeg.
For the first 13 years they lived in Winnipeg, and then decided that Dugald would be a good place for Dad to hang his hat (loved his hats) and raise their family. They shared 66 years of marriage, had seven children, Belinda, Deborah (Nick), Adele (Fred), Barry (Donna), Alice (Jeff), Kirk (Sylvia), and Susan, nine grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
When thinking of Dad the following words come to mind; strong, smile, family, witty, sarcastic, rascal, lovable, stubborn, one of a kind, and yes he was all of that.
The last few years were difficult as Dad had dementia. The times that he knew us he wasted no time using his wit and sarcasm. Other times he would say that he hoped he was a good Dad and we let him know that we were blessed to have him.
Debbie was Dad's rock. She would be sure to have hats in her car in case his went missing. She would visit and Dad would tell her about this nice lady who brought him hats but cheap hats.
Like all families, we had our challenges, but when asked it's the good times that come to mind. As much as we will miss him we know he is in a better place with is in a better place with Mom and his son in-law, Dale.
We would like to thank Dad's special friend, Mike, for all the visits that Dad enjoyed.
