BUNN, Leonard William “Lyle”

Posted by on November 25, 2016

BUNN, Leonard William “Lyle”

Lyle passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 24, 2016 at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre in Barrie at the age of 86.  Lyle leaves behind his beloved wife of 35 years, Elsie (nee Galer).  He was a loving father of Debbie (Eddy) DeMarco, Jo-Anne (Bob) Harris, Brenda Bunn, and a loving step-father to Richard Goldrick, Randal Goldrick, and Debby (Larry Luckett) Goldrick.  Cherished grandfather of 5 and great grandfather of 6.  Dear brother to Ivy, Keith “Willy” (Audrey), Claire (Sandy), Marion (Doug) and Marilyn (Norm) and dear brother in law to Joyce Bunn. Pre-deceased by his step-son Terence Goldrick, his two older brothers Herbert and Joe, his sister-in-law Eileen and his brother-in-law Harold Worthing.  Lyle will be dearly missed by many nieces and nephews and their extended families.

For 34 years and 8 months Lyle worked for the Township of North York in the Public Works department.  He retired in 1981 and moved up north to Novar where he spent the next 35 years in very active retirement.  Having met through square dancing, Lyle and Elsie continued to dance through retirement and joined The Huntsville Square Dancing Club and traveled to many locations in northern Ontario to dance.  They also opened and ran a successful Bed and Breakfast and greeted guests from around the world – many of whom still keep in touch.  Their successes continued with a table at the Huntsville Farmers Market where they sold preserves each week and where they became known as the Pickle Man and the Pickle Lady.  Needing a break from the cold, they became snowbirds and spent 13 winters in Yuma, Arizona before deciding to brave the winters in Novar where they kept active by joining and becoming an integral part of the Burks Falls Art Club.  Lyle also spent quite a bit of time writing letters to the Editor of the local newspaper which probably caused the Editor a few ulcers, but which gave Lyle great pleasure.  As cancer survivors themselves, Lyle and Elsie gave back to the community by becoming volunteer drivers for the Cancer Society which had them taking patients needing cancer treatment to cancer centers in Toronto, Sudbury and any point in between.

Lyle was the ultimate story teller and, as a tribute to him, we invite you to share your stories of or about him during a celebration of life which will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 147, Barrie on Monday, November 28, 2016 between 1:00 and 4:00 – come share your memories any time. In keeping with Lyle’s wishes, cremation has taken place.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Precious Paws Rescue in Barrie or a charity of your choice.  Messages of condolence can be left at www.peacefultransition.ca
