Memorable Manitobans: Thomas Henry Lytle (1879-1943)

Grain merchant.

Born at Omemee, Ontario on 6 March 1879, he came to Manitoba with his family in 1893, settling on a farm in the Roland area. He farmed, raised pure-bred Clydesdale horses, and bought grain. He operated a grain elevator at Roland from 1918 to 1942, having bought it from the Manitoba government. In his early years, he played lacrosse and won a Manitoba intermediate championship for three years. Later, he curled and was made a life member of the Manitoba Curling Association. In 1936, he ran in the provincial election representing the Dufferin constituency but was defeated by John A. Munn. He was a member of the Masons (Roland Lodge). He died at Roland on 1 July 1943 and was buried in the Fairview Cemetery. He was survived by a widow and two daughters.
