Seeley; Lyle James

Peacefully at his home near Maxwell on Monday, April 13, 2020 just short of his 66th birthday. Loving son of the late Leslie and Olive. Dear brother of Larry (Joan) Seeley of Lakefield, Laurel-Anne Seeley of Oakville and Lindsay (the late Carol) Seeley of Brantford. Loved and remembered as uncle to Wanda, Steven (Debbie), Kevin (Kimberly), Quentin (Carol), Adam (Megan), Rodger (Leslie), Angelle (Paul) and Paul.
Sadly missed by great nieces and nephews, Tymber, Kurtis, Kyle, Katelynn, Ben, Laura, Dawson, Tessah, Tyler, Mathew, Turner, Kali, Rhett and Declan.He had yet to meet his brand new great-great niece, Tayah-Lynn.

Lyle’s career was in the Armed Forces of Canada. He was a specialist involved with electronics on airplanes and ships. He spent a great deal of time stationed in Nova Scotia, Germany and Base Borden. He was known as “Huggy Bear” to his many friends all around the world. His greatest loves were his family, the Ottawa Senators, Blue Jays and his computer. His great sense of humour, quick wit and gift of laughter endeared him to many.

The many stories he would tell of his adventures and misadventures was always entertaining and, in fact, one job he was involved with was the equipment manager of the OOM PA PA band in Germany. He did not play an instrument but always was at the ready when the party started!

He will be laid to rest with family at the Maxwell Cemetery. A celebration of life will take place later in the year. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Flesherton/Markdale Legion, Branch 333 would be gratefully appreciated. Online donations and condolences at 888-924-2810.

My very deepest condolences to the whole Seeley Family.
Lyle would always have a story to tell me when i arrived for our weekly visits. He talked very highly of his family, so even though i didn't meet you all i certainly heard about you. He loved to reminisce about family, friends and his Armed Forces days. He tried to educate me on airplanes which i told him it was a lost He gave me my first bottle of Sambuca. Cheers!

I sit here with a tear in my eye as I write this. I don't know where to start . Lyle and I were childhood friends and well into our teens.
One day we were shooting an old bow and arrow with a little silver tip on it. I hid behind an old foundation wall and Lyle shot the arrow back at me as I peaked over the wall. Well he wasn't a very good shot but on this day he hit me right in the eye brow. By the time he got to me the Blood was spraying out. Both of us crying hand in hand we headed for the house . We knew Ollie would not be be impressed and we came up with the story that we shot the arrow in the air and it came down and hit me in the eyebrow.Very ckose to my eye. Ollie took the story (i think) and even told Bernie . We did come good on the truth many years after HAHAHA.
Then one day while on the old trail bike I was driving and Lyle was riding. I went over a jump and Lyle flew off. No big issue until I saw the blood pouring down his leg. He had landed on the licence plate frame and cut his rear end to the tune of I think 20 stitches. That wasn't a very fun trip to the hospital with Ollie driving.
When we were 15 or so Laurel Ann got us a plane ticket to Montreal to see the Montreal Expos play in Jerry Park. I will never forget that trip. Forst time ever in a big baseball stadium. Even though we were not of legal drinking age somehow we managed to find a way to obtain some beer. The rest was history.
Then there were the few times we landed in the ditch into the trees with one of our parents cars after a baseball game late in the morning. I don't think we ever told them that HAHA.
At 18-19 I left for the city to the Police Force and Lyle joined the Armed Forces. We did meet up a few times through the years. It is now I wish it had of been more.
Lyle you left us too soon. I do have a good feeling knowing you are now with Ollie, Les, Bernie and Gerald. I know you will be making them laugh as they are playing euchre with your "Kackle Laugh" as my Dad always said.
RIP old friend and until we meet again.
I look forward to your Celebration of Life in the near future to see your family again.
Ted and Debbie Magee and Family give deep condolances to the Seeley Family.
