Obituary

SMART, Lyall Arthur
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Lyall Arthur Smart on Friday, March 22, 2019. After a valiant battle with Alzheimer’s and dementia he passed away peacefully with family by his side at the Renfrew Victoria Hospital in his 87th year. Beloved husband of 65 year to Loretta (nee Brownlee). Loving father to Terry and Lee Anne. Incredibly cherished Grandfather to Cory (Jenn), Sarah (Mark), Steven (Becky), Midori Nishihama (Mark), Emily Nishihama, David Nishihama (Corrie) and Laura Nishihama. Great Grandfather to Ben, Jake, Daxon, Isabella, Luca and Dalila.
He was the son of the late Irwin and Ethel Smart of Shawville, Quebec. Survived by his sisters Isabelle (Gerald Grant) and Norma (Grant Miller). Predeceased by his brother Allan (Grace), sister Betty (Doug Thomas) and sister Rae (Clarence Little). He will be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews, relatives and countless friends.
Lyall retired in 1991 after a distinguished career with Bell Canada for 38 years. He was a long-time resident of Cobden and Renfrew. He was an avid golfer and loved the outdoors. As per Lyall’s wishes no funeral will be held, however, there will be a Celebration of Life for friends and family in late April. A grave side service will be held at the Cobden Union Cemetery in May. Details to follow.
Memorial donations can be made to the Dementia Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County, the Canadian Diabetes Association or Renfrew Presbyterian Church.
