It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Mr. Dale Robert Lyster of Stettler, Alberta on Sunday, October 6, 2019 at the age of 68 years. Dale was born on April 13, 1951 in Stettler, Alberta, the eldest and only son of Argyll and Jeanne Lyster. His Dad always called him ‘Sonny’. Dale went to school at the Red Willow School, until it burned down in 1962. He continued his education in Donalda, Alberta and then went on to High School at William E. Hay High School in Stettler, Alberta. Dale joined the Dairy 4H Club and helped his dad on the farm, in his spare time growing up. After High School, Dale went to work on the Oil Rigs and made many lifelong friends. Dale married Toni in 1973 and they started their family, welcoming the birth of their son, Brian in 1975. Their family grew with the addition of two daughters, Amber and Ebony. Following Dale and Toni’s divorce, Dale met Delena Lyle and rounded out their family with the addition of another son, Ryan. In 1987, Dale went farming with Bill and May Lyle, until December 2015. Although he was retired, he didn’t sit around. You could find Dale helping with “Chores” like farming, fencing, mowing grass and helping out at the Stettler Auction Mart. He was always up for a good Tail Creek Mud Bog, Stock Car Race, Trail Rides and guiding through the mountains, and chasing the Chuck Wagon Circuit. He was never one to sit alone; and always found someone to tell a good joke to. Dale always decorated his truck for Easter, Halloween and Christmas. Dale leaves to mourn his spouse, Anne Donahue of Stettler, Alberta, his children, Brian (Tammy) Lyster of Calgary, Alberta, Amber Lyster (Aubrey) of Eckville, Alberta, Ebony Lyster of Ponoka, Alberta and Ryan (Elesha) Lyle of Eckville, Alberta; and his eight grandchildren. He will also be sadly missed by his sisters, Linda (Guy) Walstrom of Stettler, Alberta, Cathie (Doug) Kruger of Stettler, Alberta, Karen (Jim) Irvine of Port Alberni, British Columbia, and Susan Lyster of Stettler, Alberta. Dale was predeceased by his parents, Argyll and Jeanne Lyster; as well as the mothers of his children, Toni Lyster and Delena Lyle. A Celebration of Dale’s Life will be held at Red Willow Hall, Red Willow, Alberta on Friday, October 11, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. If desired, Memorial Donations in Dale’s honor may be made directly to STARS at; the Foothills Medical Centre NICU, 1403 - 29 Street NW, Calgary, Alberta, T2N 2T9; or to the Stollery Children’s Hospital at Condolences may be sent or viewed at Arrangements in care of Parkland Funeral Home and Crematorium, 6287 – 67 A Street (Taylor Drive), Red Deer. 403.340.4040.

I just visited with Dale over lunch in Stettler Thursday afternoon. This news has hit hard as Dale was akwaysxa guardian angel to me from the time I was a partying 17 year old. Lived him dearly and will have fond memories always. My deepest condolences to his family and friends in this time of loss
