Date of Passing: Dec 25, 2020Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
LLOYD VAN GREY
He is survived by his wife Carol, loving daughter Kristin (Mike), son Michael (Olivia), granddaughters, Maya and Ariana, brother Randy, brothers-in-law, Donny and Jim (Lori), nieces and nephew.
Lloyd was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He grew up in the St. Vital area and later settled in East Kildonan with his family. Growing up, he loved playing sports and being active. After graduating from Dakota Collegiate, Lloyd attended Red River College where he studied Business Administration. He spent a lot of his time in college playing intramurals and enjoying the social benefits of attending such a facility. Lloyd had a strong dedication and love for his family, especially his wife of 40 years. His commitment to her and to the care and comforts of his family are what mattered most to him. He had a love of animals and a special bond with his dog Bailey.
Even after a later diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, he always had a smile on his face and loved helping others; especially his children and granddaughters. He enjoyed spending his summers at the cabin where he spent his time outside tinkering and on home improvements. Lloyd will be remembered for his warmth and kindness.
We would like to thank all the nurses and doctors who cared for him at St. Boniface Hospital.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society.

Condolences & Memories (7 entries)
I first met Lloyd at RRCC when we were both involved with the hockey team. We had lots of good memories and plenty of laughs. We lost touch and then decades later met each other again when we ended up working for different government departments in the same building. My sincere condolences, Lawrie Grahame - Posted by: Lawrie Grahame (Friend) on: Jan 04, 2021
I met Lloyd in the early 1990s when we both worked at CRA. Although we didn’t work in the same department we didn’t run across each other often and I found out to be a really easy-going guy and very friendly and approachable. I send his family sincere condolences on the passing of a truly great guy. - Posted by: Don dupuis (Co-worker) on: Jan 02, 2021

I am so sorry to hear about Lloyd's passing I only met Lloyd when he was a young boy when I was dating his brother Randy back in the mid sixties. Randy always spoke of his brother with great love and warmth. We lost touch over the years but I offer my sincere condolences over the passing of his beloved brother and to his family. He grew into a wonderful family man. Sincerely, Carole Rickey - Posted by: Carole Rickey (friend of Randy) on: Jan 01, 2021

Carol and family; we are saddened to learn of Lloyd’s passing. He was a wonderful Soccer Coach for years with the VG Girl’s team and we very much appreciated his efforts. He had loads of patience with the girls and we always enjoyed his company. Our sincere condolences. - Posted by: Richard, Darlene and Terri Buckinx (Soccer friends) on: Dec 31, 2020
