LYLE WATERHOUSE (published on April 18, 2009)

LYLE WATERHOUSE (The Neon Guy) Peacefully on Thursday, April 9, 2009, our dearest father, grandfather, and great-grandfather was reunited with his beloved wife Helen after a full and happy life of 84 years. Remaining to forever honour Lyle's memory are his two daughters; Lyla and Valoree (Bob); grandchildren Kristen, Lizzie, Andrew and Christopher; great-grandchildren Cody, Dillan and Brittany; sister Marjorie, brother Lorne and sister-in-law Vi. Returning from serving Canada in the Second World War on the minesweeper HMCS Milltown, he began work at Marv-eon Signs. This was the beginning of Lyle's passion with neon. He later worked at Martel-Stewart and the Neon Factory, eventually becoming the oldest neon-glass bender in Canada. Many of his original signs will continue to light up the streets of Winnipeg for years to come. Family came first with Lyle, and he always gave selflessly - for this, we will be forever grateful. Spending time at the lake at Matlock was one of his favourite things because it brought all of us together. At Lyle's request, a private family service will be held at a later date. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation for the professional care and exceptional kindness extended during his stay at Deer Lodge Centre. You were a blessing to those whose lives you touched Love you forever!
