    Well, I heard the news a fair bit earlier today, but i found myself asking if this really is and everything that happenned true or just some incredibly sick joke. I can and hopefully will never figure out why people are capably of doing some of the things they can do. Peoples beleifs and values aside, life and death are a fact of life, that will eventually happen to everyone anyways and its only best to learn from it. My condolences go out to everyone that has had the opportunity to have met and gotten to know him, including Lyle's family...

    Ill never forget the never ending list of the times we had and things that we did, and ill always remember.

    RIP Bro

    This is the hardest thing i have ever done in my life, Having to be the one to bear the worst news ever brought to me. Lyle had a Firearms accident which claimed his life yesterday which was a complete shock to everyone who has ever known him. His passion for survival, leadership, and comedy made him a great person to work with and be around. He wanted to return to cold lake as a CIC Officer and a RCMP Officer, its a real shame that he couldn't do either because he would have been the best.


    Lyle you were my Best Friend and My Brother May You Rest In Peace

    It is sad to hear such young people die, they never get a chance to live life to the fullest, my nephew found out in Science 10 on 10 Sept. '07; I also trained him in Cold Lake and several other places, and for Lyle Allsopp: everyday he lived to his fullest extent. He was humourous when we all needed it, Lyle had a good heart and was there for those that needed help or just wanted their day brightened. He sure changed a whole lot from the last time I talked with him a few years back and the time I talked to him just merely days before his death, good on him; if only there was more I could/could have done to make myself feel better from this. Even if an officer like myself shouldn't get to involved with a cadet, but this is a very difficult time for as I personally had worked with Mr. Allsopp in his previous years.

    Rest In Peace, Lyle Allsopp... may your great heart and soul carry on with the rest of us.

    Lyle was an amazing individual who to me stood out for his sense of humor and fun-loving personality; his passion for the CCM and it's people always an inspiration to me. He was a pleasure to have known, and will be deeply missed by many. My condolences to his family and friends. His contribution to the lives of many won't be forgotten.

    Thanks man. You were, as it's been put, "Epic." May you rest in peace.

    I also had the priviledge of not only meeting Lyle, but also learning survival from him on SIC. He was a great instructor and an awesome person. My condolences to the Allsopps and my prayers are with you.

    I think it hit me hardest in the second day than the first. I was fortunate to meet him while I was on OJT. My condolences to all.

    Having had the pleasure of spending drabs of time here and there with the fine cadets and staff at 878 Squadron, I know how tightly-knit the Banff/Canmore cadet community is. I can only express my sympathy on the loss of a family member.

    God speed, Lyle.

    Lyle Allsopp. I never got to meet him, and now I only wish I had. From what everyone has told me and what I have observed he has been a big influence on CW and the people around us. The world lost a gift, the cadet organization has losted one gifted cadet, but heaven has gained an angel. I don't think anything could of prepared us to let go.

    RIP Lyle Allsopp.

    I knew WO1 Allsop from S.I.C and he was an inspiration to all the Cadets in our flight ( Iroquios flight ) 2k7. He always knew what to say and when to say it. How to show great leadership and respect. He knew when and how to make people happy. Its a real shock to hear of this horrible accident. and I give out every teer in my body to the parents of WO1 Allsop. I belive that this story should go national so everyone who knew him and didnt know him could learn of him and honour him like we all did and do still, and I think a memorial should be made at Cold lake at the Survival Wing. because he really cared about all movements ongoing at the Survival camps. and also the Cadet program all together.

    Warrent Officer Allsop I honor you and will miss you forever

    Remembering Lyle Allsopp

    Man I remember after the survival grad parade, Lyle and I were looking at the yearbook in HQ and he was ****** off that he didn't do a write up for the yearbook. He wanted so bad to tell the cadets everything he knew about leadership and survival. This just proves how much of a hard worker he was and how much he loved Cold Lake... he got a tattoo of the Axe and Hammer on his arm!
    During third or second week a spent a couple days downstairs in the field and we were talking about what we said in our Warrant Officer interviews and we both said that we wanted what was best for the cadets and the camp etc... And I think he has, thumbs up and a pat on the back for Lyle! It seems that the world has lost a great leader, however he will be in our hearts forever until we join him.

    *To the CLACSTC staff cadets, remember how hilarious the dances were when Lyle sang Baby Got Back in his outragous outfits... BAHAHAHA! Those were the days... any other fun camp memories with him?*
