Beloved husband of Barbara Lynn Lyon (née Powell).  Devoted father of Sandra Rossiter (Barry) and Philip Lyon (Anita).  Loving grandfather of Sydney, Lauren, Corinna and Aaron.  Dear brother of Maurice (Evelyn – predeceased), Bill, Harry (Marg), Shirley Kane (Brian – predeceased), Jack (Barb), Linda Weir (Doug) and the late Barb Tresise (George – predeceased), the late Don (Betty – predeceased) and the late Ken (Marian).  Dear son of the late Minnie & Norman Lyon.  He will be lovingly remembered by many nieces and nephews.


Phil was an avid hockey fan, master at euchre and a farming enthusiast.  Next to his family, his greatest passions were road trips and train travel.  His booming, boisterous laugh will never be forgotten.
