FREDERICK LLOYD RIGBY
February 28, 1931 June 9, 2021
Left to mourn his passing is his sister, Linda Smith of Winnipeg, children, David (Erin) of Calgary, AB, Barbara Brown of Steinbach, MB and two grandsons that he adored, Parker Brown and Braeden Rigby, as well as cousins - the Allenby family of Winnipeg, the Ward family of Fort Qu'Appelle, SK, and many friends near and far.
Lloyd was predeceased by his wife Beverley in 1993 and his special companion of 23 years, Isabel Saunders in 2018.
A lifelong Winnipegger, Lloyd spent his formative years in the North End, graduating from Isaac Newton High School in 1949. In 1950 Lloyd joined the Manitoba Telephone System where he spent his entire 39 year career. In the spring of 1989 he retired from MTS as the Supervisor of the Long Range Planning Division. Early on in his career at MTS he met his wife Beverley and they married in July, 1963. In the following years they started their family, residing in the Westwood area for the next 35 years.
Always active in a variety of sports, Lloyd was most proud of his affiliation with the Elmwood Giants Baseball Club as a player and coach and then as a scout for the St. Boniface Canadiens in the 1950s pro sponsorship era. He was also an active curler for many years both at the Wildewood and Deer Lodge Curling Clubs. For the last 35 years you could always find him at his second home on the fairways of the Teulon Golf & Country Club, in the stands at Assiniboia Downs or Turf Paradise in Phoenix, or on the deck of the family cottage at Whytewold Beach and Isabel's cottage at Falcon Lake.
The family would like to thank all the doctors, nurses and staff on RR6 at Health Sciences Centre and the staff at Ste. Anne Hospital for all of their help and compassion in the past several weeks.
In accordance with Lloyd's wishes there will be no service. A private family interment will occur at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Heart & Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, the Grace Hospital Foundation or the charity of your choice.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
I just stumbled upon Lloyd's obituary and was saddened to see it. Having spent much of my childhood and adolescence at the golf course in Teulon, Lloyd came to be known as a great friend and supporter of TG&CC, always with a smile and a chat about how things are going. Offering my sincere sympathies to his family and friends. - Posted by: Alan Campbell (Friend) on: Oct 03, 2021
Our sincere condolences David and Barb and families. Your father was a very good friend of our dad Ken Hayward. I have wonderful memories of golfing with your dad, my dad and Bob Stenhouse at Teulon GC. I always enjoyed his company. Maureen Fenwick and sister Darlene Hayward. - Posted by: Maureen Fenwick and Darlene Hayward (Friend) on: Jun 20, 2021
Long time friends of my Mum (Connie Green) and Dad (Edward Green) we got to know Bev and Lloyd and always enjoyed our time together. David and Barb please accept our deepest condolences on your loss. - Posted by: Robert and Kerry Green (Friend ) on: Jun 12, 2021
Lloyd meant a great deal to me. He was a kind and loving friend. I’ll miss the rivalry we had over hockey- Toronto versus Montreal and the Martinis we shared. Gone but always in my heart. I’ll miss you! - Posted by: Heather Laliberte (Friend) on: Jun 12, 2021
