FLOOD – Arthur “Lloyd”

August 10, 1927 – March 15, 2011

Lloyd died in Calgary at peace, after a short illness and hard fight.

He leaves Bea, his beloved wife of sixty years, his children Barbara Bodiguel, Jane Grace, Clint Flood and Craig Flood and his loving grandchildren Joel, Jordan, Stefan and Keelan Bodiguel, Leeann, Kayla and Cameron Flood, Sarah Irvine and Chloe and Nina Rowan. He also leaves Marcel Bodiguel, Cindy Flood, Caroline Rowan, Sharon Bodiguel and Ashley Bodiguel.

A proud Geological Engineer and graduate of the University of Saskatchewan, Lloyd lived a life full of adventure, friendship and memories. His career in the oil and gas industry in Canada, South East Asia and around the globe allowed him and his family to experience the richness and beauty of the world. He was a warm and generous man who made friends wherever he went and taught those around him the joy of a kind word and a job well done. A longtime member at Canyon Meadows Golf and Country Club, Lloyd delighted in golf and skiing with family and friends, and enjoyed a spirited discussion and a glass of scotch. Always involved in the community, Lloyd was a founding member of St. Andrew’s United Church and was active in Friends of Science. His work with Rotary’s clean water initiative in Lombok allowed him to give back to Indonesia and its people, who had given him and his family so much.

A Celebration of Lloyd’s life will be held at St. Andrew’s United Church (924 Heritage Drive S.W.) on Monday, March 21, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. Forward condolences through If friends so desire, donations in Lloyd’s memory can be made to the Rotary Foundation, or to a charity of their choice. The family wishes to thank the nursing staff at Unit 93 at the Rockyview Hospital for their compassionate care and support.

In living memory of Lloyd Flood, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200

    Lloyd was a father to me, he was a kind man and never stopped to offer words of wisdom, and there were many. We shared many good years working in Asia and also many years as good friends after Asia. He introduced me to many good things in life including the Rotary Club.

    I will miss my good friend dearly and will never get a chance to beat him in golf. Love you LLoyd.

  6. Robert Theleen from Shanghai, China :

    Lloyd was a great friend, a partner, a mentor to me. We first met when I was young petroleum banker and he was a distinguished petroleum exploration executive in Singapore. He taught me more about this industry than anyone I ever knew. He was the sharpest analyst of petroleum geology and engineering I ever met and I have met a lot. But those were his minor qualities. For Lloyd had the spirit of discovery and entrpreneurship that burned in him and he gave it others. At the end of the day, Lloyd’s mission was to discover oil for the people of some of the poorest countries on earth-Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam.

    For those of you in Canada who knew him in his beautiful Calgary, you should take comfort and pride that there are more individuals in Asia, from Singapore, from Indonesia, From Vietnam, from Hong Kong, from Japan and from China who grieve his loss as you do.

    He was a pioneer who never avoided risk and did so with a constant sense of human fraility, with an enormous sense of humor and a generosity that inspired cynics to be trusting, forced dishonest men to behave honorably and to make all of his colleagues feel as if they were equal to him.

    In other words, he was a hero to me. He was willing to take on the toughest challenges in his professon and give credit to others while, simultaneously, if something went wrong, overly apportioned the blame on himself. The truth is it was rare for anything to go wrong in doing business with Lloyd Flood.

    His passion for golf was only exceeded by his passion for his family. Whenver we met he always had a story of pride about one of his children or of his beloved Bea, his partner for life.

    Intelligence, courage, integrity, love and a undying belief in family and in his friends. You changed my life for only goodness.

    I will miss you dearly, my friend. I am sorry I never had the nerve to tell you how much I loved you.

    Bea and Family:
    It s with great sadness that we read this morning about the passing of our dear friend Lloyd.
    He was one of those shinning personalities you looked forward to seeing or bumping into at the “club”. Always had a good story to tell and was always so upbeat. You always felt your day was a little brighter after a conversation with Lloyd.
    I’m certain he will be missed by all …

    I know our Lord will have a place for such a wonderful sole.
    Again our condolences.

    On the first day at work in the Singapore office, I drafted a letter to Head Office for Lloyd’s signature. My draft letter was returned with a note from Lloyd that read “If your letter is worth sending, sign your name. We do not have a signing hierarchy in this office”.

    Little did I realize that Lloyd has already initiated his dream vision to train Asian professionals to eventually take over the helm of management and leadership of company operations in Asia. He created a conducive work environment for hands-on learn on-the-job apprenticeship. Lloyd was a hard task master demanding a high standard of professionalism but he did it with wisdom and wit, fairness, compassion, kindness and generosity. His philosophy was to operate lean and mean to have the advantage of fast decision-making and fast action follow up. Coupled with his engineering, logistics, and economic analysis of a drilling prospect, his operations was probably one of the most efficient and cost effective. He also taught us the art of negotiating and the importance of good realationship with state regulatory bodies and venture partners. All these multi-facet work disciplines, we had to learn fast to meet Lloyd’s expections of us as his understudy. I am very thankful and feel fortunate to have been a part of his dream vision come true when he turned over the helm to his Asian succesor. Lloyd was my mentor and great friend.

    Lloyd’s main career passion was making exploration deals which he called making movies. Even after retirement, he always talked about making another movie. But I believe his real passion was helping the poor and the needy. He helped a Vietnamese family refugee to settle down in Canada and his contributions in making the Lombok, Indonesia clean-water project a huge success is truly a labor of love and a great service to the habitat for humanity. He also has a gift for the spoken language. His ability to connect with the man in the street in Indonesia is due to his fluency in Bahasa Indonesia which was an envy of native speakers of the language.

    Lloyd, on behalf of people whose lives you touched, we are privileged to join your family in honoring your legacy of kindness and generosity. Your memory will reside in our hearts.

  16. Lloyd knew the joys of being alive. His tenets of love of family, appreciation of friends and associates, value of work, and celebration of life were much appreciated in the many global locations that were part of his life. As a long time family friend, coach, advisor, purveyor of wry humor and sometimes golf buddy he was very special to me and will be dearly missed.
    My condolences to Bea and the family. I know and feel your sorrow, but slowly and gently it will soften into wonderful memories. I love you all.

  17. Deepest condolences in your families loss, Craig.
    Although I never had the honour of meeting your father, anyone who subscribes to the “apple falling from the tree” theory can surmise that he was truly a great and honourable man, just as his son has turned out to be.
    Best Wishes, Craig

    Dear Bea and family,

    How saddened Cliff and I are to read that Lloyd has passed away. I was only a young girl when you and Lloyd and my parents, the Allans met. This was just the beginning of golfing, partying and travelling together for many years. I know how much fun you had and that they cherished your friendship.

    It was only this past summer that Lloyd, looking the picture of health, approached our group at the first tee and in his distinctive voice said,, “Ok ladies, you have 60 seconds each to tell your health issues – and that’s it!” and we laughed along with him. He was always smiling and so friendly at the Club.

    I am so sorry to miss the funeral Bea, as we are in California with Cliff’s family. Please accept our heartfelt sympathy.

    Love and comforting thoughts to you and your family.

    Ashley and Cliff Proceviat

    Dear Bea,

    Please accept our sincere sympathy to you and your family on the loss of Lloyd. George McLeod wanted to be sure we were notified and I really appreciate it.
    Betty Ann and I have fond memories of you both in Singapore which seems like yesterday. Lloyd was so good to me and I recall those late night flights back to Singapore from Jakarta when he would share his wisdom with me over the top of his glasses with those flashing eyes elfish grin. Those golf games at the Singapore Island Club with Lloyd, Vern Williams and Ed Bybel were special.
    I am very fortunate to have had him as a friend, will always remember him and truly miss him. I’ll bet he’s up there giving wisdom to God right now!
    Please let us know if we can ever help you Bea.

    Much Love
    Betty Ann and Al Baker

  23. Philip Turner - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam :

    I was so saddened to learn today of the passing of Lloyd, my old boss and mentor from the 1970’s with Bow Valley in Asia. In 1978 he introduced me to Vietnam where 33 years later I still reside. He was the first explorationist in the country after the war; still remembered amongst his former Vietnamese colleagues in Hanoi as the real pioneer, the one who overcame all the challenges in the post war embargoed country and drilled the first two wells. In those early days he taught me so much and gave me a lasting example for honesty, integrity, determination, while also being a very caring person, a ‘very nice guy’ with a great sense of humor. I will certainly miss him and wish I had kept closer in touch in the last few years. Rest in peace my old friend with the knowledge that you did a lot of good in your life and left many fond memories and good examples to those still here.

    Bea: It is with great saddness that Gerry & I read about Lloyd’s passing. Lloyd hired me as accountant at CDP in about 1967. We worked together may times especially in taking the company public. We spent many lunches at the Petroleum Club on both business and pleasure. We met you a few times at company functions and enjoyed it greatly. Unfortunately we could not be with you on today but our thoughts and prayers were there.

    God Bless
