lean not on your own understanding.” Prov. 3:5.
With a heavy heart but not without hope we announce the sudden passing of Lyle Aleman at the age of 44 on June 4, 2015. He is survived by his loving wife Carisa Aleman (Bekkering) and his five precious daughters Jenna, Kelsy, Megan, Halle and Eryn. He was a dear son of Mike and Mary Aleman, brother to Kim (Paul) Thorsteinson and Leanne (Dyron) Provost, son-in-law to John and Helen Bekkering, brother-in-law to Matthew (Stephanie) Bekkering, Kathryn (Jason) Ferrie and Stephen Bekkering. He was loved by many nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, cousins and special friends.
Lyle was born Feb. 24, 1971 in Lacombe, Alberta. The family moved to Medicine Hat in 1977. He graduated from Crescent Heights High School in 1988. He went on to study at The University of Lethbridge and earned his Bachelor of Commerce in 1993. His family was involved in the greenhouse business and he was blessed to work at RedHat Co-op as General Manager. His integrity and passion shone through in his daily work.
He married his best friend Carisa on May 15, 1999. They were truly blessed with five wonderful and treasured girls. He loved each of them dearly and encouraged them to use their individual talents to serve others and the Lord. He loved spending time with them playing badminton, shooting hoops, teaching them to fix sprinkler heads, building projects, playing games, reading stories, driving side-by-sides or just snuggling together watching a movie. We will miss his smile and laughter and hugs.
He showed his servant-heart by serving multiple terms on church council of the Medicine Hat Christian Reformed Church and as an executive board member of the Medicine Hat Christian School.
Lyle was respected and loved by so many people and we pray that God will give peace and understanding as we approach the days, months and years ahead.
