Kyle, Ferg (VE3LVO)   Aug. 31, 1929 - May 21, 2024

Ferg was born in East York, Ontario, the only child of James (Fergus) and Charlotte Kyle, and passed away peacefully at the age of 94 on 21 May 2024 in Burlington, Ontario.

He grew up in Toronto where he attended UTS then moved to Montreal and studied Engineering at McGill. While at University he joined the RCAF “City of Westmount” 401(F) (Aux) Squadron in St. Hubert. That was the beginning of his aviation dream.

In the RCAF he flew Harvards, Vampires, Sabres, T-33s, Expeditors and the Otter. He retired from the RCAF in 1972 as a Lieutenant-Colonel and CO of 401 Squadron.

Ferg was an avid Ham Radio enthusiast and joined the Burlington Amateur Radio Club where he participated in many emergency preparedness exercises with local agencies. He and Jenny were members of the St. Luke’s Anglican Church congregation in Burlington. He participated in various projects at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton, Ontario - including flying the Yale. He was a talented sketch artist taking after his father who was a political cartoonist for the Globe (amongst others) newspaper In Toronto.

Ferg was predeceased in 2021 by the love of his life Jenny and his daughter Elizabeth in 2014. He leaves behind two sons James (Julie) and Peter (Renee), and five grandchildren Gillian, Philip, Catherine, Simon and Vivienne.

Funeral Services will be held at St. Luke’s Anglican Church, Monday June 10th at 2pm. All welcome.
