A Loss for Our Industry

You may have already heard that long-time digital signage industry consultant Lyle Bunn passed away last Tuesday, Oct. 9 from colon cancer. If you knew Lyle you also know that he was not only professionally generous, but also kind-hearted and a gentleman whose first reaction was to befriend all those with whom he came in contact.  Lyle was the first ever official member of the DSF when the organization incorporated in 2010.

So it is not surprising that Lyle wanted his friends in the industry to know that it was “His great joy to be able to make such contributions to the industry, touching many individuals and organizations, since the inception of the digital signage industry. His final wish was for the industry’s ongoing success.”

Digital Signage Federation Chairman Richard Ventura said, “With Lyle’s passingI am reminded of the fragility of life and how short a time we are all really here. Over the years, I’ve gotten to know Lyle, both as a person and as a member of our industry. He was ubiquitous in our industry, insatiable in his desire to learn and teach, and genuine in his enthusiasm and gentle manner. He will be missed and he will be remembered. On behalf of the leadership and members of the DSF, our sincerest condolences to his family.”

Know that services to celebrate Lyle’s life will be held at 1pm on Saturday, Oct. 20 at the Brighton Fellowship Christian Reform Church, 204 Main Street, Brighton, Ontario. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent in Lyle’s name either to the Canadian Cancer Society or to the American Cancer Society.
