Please accept our condolences from all the past and current students, faculty, staff, and board members of Emmanuel Bible College. We give thanks to God for the faithful service of Lyness as the College Principal from 1953-58 as well as many faithful years serving as a faculty member. We take comfort knowing that to be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord (2 Cor 5:8).

Feel blessed to have known your Father  His humour, wisdom and generosity were second to none.  What an example for you as family to follow.  He never sought the public spotlight but always sought to be a genuine, authentic follower of Jesus.  Thanks for sharing Him with us!

Please accept our sincere condolences in the death
of Lyness. We remember him from his Warm Hearts
Palliative Care work on Manitoulin.  In fact the first time i met him
he came to sit with my first husband [Rodney Aelick ] as he was
very ill . Later I worked with Lyness in the Warm Hearts group.
He was such a warm and caring Christian man !  He will have great rewards
in Heaven !

It is with sadness that we at Hanover Missionary Church learned of the death of our great friend, Lyness.
We have many fond memories of his time in the Hanover area: his deep understanding of the Bible and historical context that he freely shared in Bible studies and sermons; amazing Christmas dinners prepared by Lyness and Helen that blessed up to 200 people each year (mmm that Christmas pudding!);delightful "Birdlife of Wingdon" stories told for the children but enjoyed by all ages;  always a warm welcome for visitors and friends alike.
We thank the Lord for the time Lyness ministered among us and pray that He will comfort you in this time of loss.

Deepest condolences to the family, I met Lyness doing Warmhearts Palliative Care work and was deeply impressed by his Christ like compassion, humor and warmth. I am sure Christ warmly welcomed him home at the Pearly Gates, " come good and faithful servant, we have been waiting for you"  Blessings to all his family and friends
