January 19, 1936 - April 30, 2021

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
Lloyd is survived by Lorna, his wife of 63 years; his children, Randy (Arlene), Rick (Kathi), Grant (Cheryl) and Lea (Darcy); his nine grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. He will also be missed by his sisters, May (Murray) and Rose, and many other family and friends. Lloyd was predeceased by his parents, Horace and Sina, as well as many dear family and friends.
Lloyd was born on the family farm in Oak Point, Manitoba. He lived there for almost his entire life working the land with his parents and later with his own family. The farm made many transitions over the years from dairy and mink to beef and grain, from horse drawn equipment to his matching white tractors. Autumn meant hunting and guiding which led to special friendships with his American friends. Winter found Lloyd commercial fishing on Lake Manitoba. He always felt the itch to set a net as soon as the ice was "thick enough". Lloyd transitioned his love of visiting to a successful Portage Mutual insurance business. Lloyd was a sports enthusiast from a young age and throughout his entire life. He competed in many sports: track, baseball, curling, bowling, hockey and golf. One of his proudest moments was his Hole-in-One on the 5th hole at Lundar Golf Club. He was always ready for a game of pool (Sharky) or cribbage. He spent many years coaching the young men up Highway 6 in baseball and hockey winning lots of championships. In his later years he loved watching his grandkids and great-grandkids compete in a variety of sports. Dancing is not a sport, but Lloyd excelled in that too. He was light on his feet and was eager to go to any old time dance in the area. Lloyd's other passion was volunteerism and his love of community. He was on many boards of executives working hard to make lives better for the people around him. He spent lots of time and energy helping the Oak Point Community Club, the Lundar New Horizons Club and the Lundar Golf Club.
His family would like to thank Dr. Thomas and the amazing staff at the Eriksdale Hospital for all they did for Lloyd during his stay, especially during this extra challenging time.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Oak Point Community Hall by contacting the RM of St. Laurent, MB at 1-204-646-2259 or to any charity close to your heart.
Due to restrictions a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
