May 7, 1944 – June 8, 2022
We are heartbroken to announce the passing of a proud husband, father, brother, nino, uncle and friend. He fiercely loved those closest to him.
Lloyd was born in Fort Smith and lived many years in the Northwest Territories. He and his wife, Graciela (née Oliver Nuñez), chose Beaumont, Alberta as the place to raise their children, Marcela and Michael. After losing his hearing unexpectedly in his forties, Lloyd decided to work toward his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering at the University of Alberta. One of his daughter’s fondest memories is meeting on campus as they both
pursued their studies. After graduating, he became a Professional Engineer, one of his proudest achievements.
Lloyd loved traveling with his wife, enjoying beautiful experiences together across
several countries and making friends along the way. He also loved playing golf, especially with his son, gathering closest family for meals and celebrations, sharing jokes and
laughter, and caring for the family’s pets.
He believed in giving back to the community. From receiving a “Heart of Gold” award sponsored by Air Canada and the Canadian Community Newspaper Association, to
traveling across North America to promote careers in STEM to Indigenous youth, his support of organizations and people made a difference and remains part of his legacy.
As per Lloyd’s wishes, immediate family held a private event to honour him.
While his family grieves the loss of his physical presence in their lives, they take comfort in knowing he lives on in the beauty that surrounds and embraces them.
“He is always in our hearts.”
As expressions of sympathy, donations can be made in Lloyd’s honour to the Alberta Cancer Foundation or any animal rescue.
