The Creator called for "Fishers of Men" - Lloyd went to be with the Creator at morning light on December 17, 2021. He was graced by his family at Heaven's Gates.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I had the privilege of knowing Birdie for over twenty years through his work in Northern Manitoba as a fishing guide. He worked at some of the best lodges in the Province, and was genuinely considered to be among the best of the best guides. While somewhat unconventional, he had a special talent to go along with his endearing personality, which always had him in great demand with guests. I always enjoyed the periodic off season phone calls from him, asking me if I wanted any fresh walleye, or to wish me a Merry Christmas, or even just to say hello. He will be missed. My condolences to his family and friends. - Posted by: Mike Cavell (friend) on: Dec 28, 2021

  • Lloyd & I worked at Knee Lake as guides. This in (2001-3). Lloyd was a respected and VERY knowledgeable fishing guide. He taught me a few valuable lessons. Sorry to hear of his passing, my condolences to his family. - Posted by: jerry maryniuk (Friend & former fishing guide co-worker.) on: Dec 21, 2021
