Lloyd was born in Tisdale, Saskatchewan. Throughout his 97 years, he never lost his love for the Saskatchewan Roughrider's, Waskesiu, and his hometown of Aylsham. Lloyd enjoyed sports and outdoor activities. He was very proud of curling with his father and two brothers in many bonspiels but particularly the Nipawin Car Spiel. Lloyd took pleasure in sharing his many stories of hunting and fishing trips with friends from Moose Jaw.
Lloyd joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1944 and re-enlisted in 1957. He and Margaret enjoyed the military life, which stationed them in Labrador, Baden-Baden, Germany, Trenton, Ontario and Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
Upon retirement, Lloyd and Margaret moved to White Rock, British Columbia. In retirement, Lloyd enjoyed his casino trips, golfing, the fish and game club, the Crescent Legion, family vacations and visiting with many friends and family.

Lloyd and Margaret were wonderful neighbors of ours on Stevens Street for many a year. We spent much time reminiscing about our respective time spent in the Air Force. I’m sure that he continued to spin his yarns with all and sundry when he moved on to Crescent Gardens. He lived a long and happy life but it’s always difficult to lose a loved one. Condolences to all the family.

We are sad to hear of Lloyds passing.
He really was an all around good guy. We really enjoyed having him as a neighbour on Stevens St. for many years. Always ready for a chat, always with a helping hand and always with a story..loved his stories the best.
He lived a very good life and we know he will be missed.
Sincere condolences, Gord and Ann Bryce

I loved the short time I spent with Lloyd. He shared stories of his service post WWII in the UK, his role as a pilot, as well as the time he spent in Montreal. I honestly could have listened for hours. I also found it endearing that every time him and I met, he mistaken me for Harvey. Some may take offense when someone forgets their name, but Lloyd was such a kind-hearted man, there was no mistaking his sincerity.
I admired his relationship with Chad, and the role he played in Chad's life. Judging by the stories, not only was Lloyd a wonderful grandfather to Chad, but he was also a great friend that Chad adored.
I, myself, will miss Lloyd. He truly was one of one.
My sincere condolences to Glen, Sheila, Chad, Michelle, Brittney, the entire family, and to his friends. He was a wonderful man.
With love, Mo.

I always remember how happy my grandpa Jack Palmer was when he told stories about his brother (my great uncle) Lloyd.
Jack would always smile when he spoke fondly of growing up with Lloyd in Saskatchewan and how he met his wife Margaret in England during the Second World War, along with the many different places the married couple lived and travelled.
During the Aylsham homecoming in 2005, it was nice to see Lloyd and Jack together as brothers and having the time of their lives in the community where they grew up.
Lloyd will be missed. He is an example of what to strive for in a long, rich and wonderful life full of good memories, good friends, and a loving family.

We didn't get to see Lloyd very often, but when we did, he and I talked about hockey. He loved the Canucks and Trevor Linden. He was disgusted with people that didn't know what the original logo was. He would explain to them that it was the ice surface with a hockey stick laying in one end of it, which turned it into a "C." Very simple concept! A very nice man. Our sympathy is extended to his family.

Our most sincere sympathy and love to Allen, Diane and Glen, and their families. Uncle Lloyd was a kind, gentle, wonderful, patient, gentleman. Always enjoyed visiting with him and Auntie Margaret, and then our visits with him in White Rock. He will be dearly missed by us and Cary, Cindy, Chris and Stacey (our four children) With much love and respect to his family. Someone so special can never be forgotten, may his soul rest in peace. All our Love from George and Diane
