It is with deepest sorrow that we inform you of the passing of our dear friend and colleague Andrew Lyon. As many of you know, he was fighting cancer and has succumbed to the illness. Andrew will be remembered for his positive outlook on life, his compassion for others and his big welcoming smile. I believe that I speak on behalf of all of us when I say he will truly be missed.
It was very important to his wife, Sue, that this message be passed along to our Canadian team.
“It’s a very sad time for us all. Andrew and I loved Canada and all of you as much as our homeland and to leave the way we did broke our hearts. You were our family when our family were so far away. Please pass on to everyone our sincere love and gratitude for knowing a very special Canada team who will always be in our hearts as family”
