Jarrod Lyle has passed away

AUSTRALIAN and Goulburn Valley golfer Jarrod Lyle has died from cancer aged 36.

He moved into palliative care last week after coming to the sad realisation his body could no longer handle the rigours of treatment, and he spent his last days at home with his wife Briony and two daughters Lusi and Jemma.

Lyle had been fighting a third battle with cancer since a recurrence of acute myeloid leukaemia last year and his condition deteriorated recently as he partially lost his eyesight and had speech difficulties.

Briony released a statement on Thursday to reveal the heartbreaking news.

“It breaks my heart to tell everyone that Jarrod is no longer with us,” she said. “He passed away peacefully at 8.20pm last night having spent his final week in Torquay among his family and close friends.

“Lusi, Jemma and I are filled with grief and must now confront our lives without the greatest husband and father we could ever have wished for.

“At the same time, we have been blessed and overwhelmed with the messages and actions of support from around the world and feel comforted that Jarrod was able to happily impact so many people throughout his life. Our humble thanks to you all.
