It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Lyle Lorne Attwood of Calgary, AB on January 8, 2021 at the age of 74.
Born in Calgary on September 12,1946, Lyle was a tried-and-true Calgarian and cowboy through and through.
Predeceased by his parents Norm Attwood and Muriel (Laycock) Attwood and his wife of 49 years Charlotte (Madden) Attwood.
He is survived by his son Brent (Jennifer Roy), daughter Trisha (Richard Keller), granddaughters MyChau and Envi.
Dearly missed by his two sisters and nephews as well as many extended family and friends.
An avid hunter and equestrian, Lyle jumped at the opportunity to spend time in the country and soak in the great outdoors. Living in the city did not stop him from keeping his favourite horse at his father’s house until it was time for him to be retired. After that, it was a steel horse he rode to enjoy the weekends in the country with his family. He put his heart and soul into everything he did and refused to give up until the job was done.
As life went on, his grandchildren became the light in his eyes and there was nothing that he would not do to see them smile and hear their laughter. Quiet time on the couch reading, watching their favorite shows, or riding out to the farm to play on the tractors.
To those who are his friends, he was always there to lend a hand, a tool, or even his truck.
To those who are his family, he did his best to be the best husband, father, nephew, and cousin that he could.
To his children and grandchildren, he will always be their hero.

You held my hand when I was small, you caught me when I fell
You are the hero of my childhood, and my later years as well
And every time I think of you, my heart still fills with pride
Though I will always miss you Dad, I know you are by my side
In laughter and in sorrow, in sunshine and through rain
I know you are watching over me, until we meet again
