Cazes, Lyle Cameron
Was born in 1946 and was passed from the loving arms of his wife, Blanche Cazes, into the arms of Jesus on May 22, 2009.
With a gentle spirit, he impacted everyone he ever met. Lyle will be remembered as a great man full of humour, wisdom, faith and love; an inventor, song writer and musician who lived life to its fullest. His philosophy of life was, “Live without guilt or worry; yesterday’s gone and tomorrow isn’t here—all you have is today so let’s make the most of it.”
Lyle proved that progress does not have to be a step backwards in terms of environmental impact; his peers as well as government honoured him for that: In 2007, Lyle Cazes received the Major Reclamation Award from the Alberta Chamber of Resources. Further to this, on May 8 2009 Lyle was the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award, given to him by Environment Alberta in
recognition of his technologies for preserving the land which we all depend on to live while developing it for the benefit of future generations.
Lyle Cameron Cazes always said, “When I get to the pearly gates, I want to hear, ‘Well done my good and faithful servant. You’ve taken care of my land and have made it a better place for all. “Mission accomplished”.
A special thanks to Dr. Holden Chow and all of the nurses at Cheam II, cancer ward at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital, for the warm, gentle and loving care that Lyle received during his last days with us.
He will be greatly missed by his wife, Blanche Cazes, daughters Leah Tremblay (Steeve) and Jenean Cabrita (Zeferino), his granddaughters, Sidnee and Megan Tremblay, and Emily Cabrita. Lyle was a loving brother to siblings Frances (Henry), Herbert (“Bud” and Marie), Warren (“Dyg” and Mary), Claire (Doreen), Ken, Jean (Andy), Marty (Karen), Winston (Sherrie), Sharon, Jack, and Lynn.
What an honour to have known this man. So shall my walk be close with God, Calm and serene my frame; So purer light shall mark the road That leads me to the Lamb.
