LINES – Andrew Lloyd

February 26, 1946 – October 4, 2009

It is with overwhelming sadness that we say goodbye to an amazing husband, father, and grandfather. Lloyd passed away peacefully at home, with his family by his side, after a courageous battle with cancer. Lloyd will be forever missed by his loving wife Lana of forty-two years, Children Andreanna “Andi” (Ken) Lamont, Jay (Karen) Lines, Alana (Brad) Cartwright, Aaron (Dana) Lines, Sister Marilyn (Sid) Ott, and Brother Ron Lines. Papa’s sweet nature and mischievousness will be forever cherished by his granddaughters Brooke, Kristen and Lauryn, and his grandsons Cameron, Andrew, Aidan, AJ and Brett. He will be lovingly embraced by family members that have passed before him, Father Milton Lines, Mother Violet Lines, and Brother Gerald. Lloyd was a long time dentist and entrepreneur in Fort McMurray and touched so many lives in his short 63 years. He has been blessed with a large and loving extended family that will remember his humor and kindness.

    Dear Lana,
    I was so saddened when I heard of Lloyd’s illness and then his passing.
    Our friend Doug MacRae had mentioned his name from time to time as Lloyd was his dentist in Fort Mc Murray..I would always think back on our school days at Irwin Collegiate. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Life goes so fast, and he was far too young to pass on I am sure. Your family will be much comfort for you at this time.

  14. My condolences to Lloyd’s family,

    None of you probably know me but I went to school with Lloyd back in Swift Current between 1956 and 1958, during our elementary school days at Dickson school. In 1958 our family moved to Edmonton then to Kelowna then Calgary. The honest truth is that for the past fifty years I’ve often wondered where Lloyd was living and what he is doing and if he has a family. I am so delighted to find that that he has a loving family and that he lived a good life. Well, I want to tell you that he was a class act and a real friend when he was 12 years old.
    May his memory be eternal.

  20. Dear Lana and family,

    Marty and I know that you are going through what will probably be one of the most difficult times in your lives, but know that Lloyd has left wonderful memories with everyone he knew. We were just watching some silent home movies of some of his antics during the 1970’s … like the time we were moose hunting and the moose bumped into his tent wires in the middle of the night. Lloyd bagged that one wearing his “hunting shorts” on that cold fall night. And there was the time we were using your family volkswagon to hunt across the Clearwater River. When coming back with a moose in the car we had to put it onto a home made barge to travel across the river. The barge dipped as we turned the corner into the Snye and off went the car. It floated for a couple of hundred yards at least! Wilf pulled it out in the middle of the night by driving his truck on the new golf course fairways to get access to it. Lloyd then sold the car to Tiny O’Brien (King of the North) for $1.00. And with the new Pinto station wagon you got to replace it, we wound up in a serious mud hole. It was so stuck we almost had to quarter it to get it out. And there was the snowmobile that Lloyd could drive so fast that he could snap the stock off his new rifle when he rolled it. And then there was the home built airboat that smoked so much we thought the whole boat was on fire as we saw him coming up the river. That was also quite a sight seeing Lloyd on the back snapping the propeller to start it. It was a wonder he still had two hands. And we can’t forget the time he was walking chest deep, one hand on the canoe, hoping he would step on the outboard motor he lost when he flipped the canoe by inadvertently tying the anchor rope to the side of it in a strong current. Never did find the motor! And then there was the motor boat at Gregoire when Jay thought we were close enough to shore to get out and he disappeared under the boat. And there were the jet boat trips to Ft. Chip (200 miles) when we couldn’t find the Athabasca River on our way back because the lake shoreline was lined with bullrushes for miles and miles and it all looked the same. We usually found it quite by accident. We even watched a movie of Lloyd throwing a hunting knife at an apple on Wilf’s head. Lloyd told me to take separate clips of him throwing the knife and Wilf standing as the target because he wanted to show Wilf with the punctured apple only after Lloyd could carefully stick the knife in it by hand. And then there was the time Lloyd arranged for someone to wear a gorilla suit and run into John Nawolski’s bathroom while John was taking a bath. And yes, that was the very first tsunami to occur in a bath tub. This was after an earlier episode where the gorilla was chased around the ring road by dogs and a guy with a shotgun who thought it was a bear!

    Lloyd has left us with many fond memories of dozens and dozens of boating, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and camping trips. Lloyd helped make our early days in Fort McMurray a great place to live and we enjoyed many adventures which we will always cherish. Lana, we will send you copies of the pictures and video that we have.

    We’re thinking of you.

    Jim and Marty Kassen

Although I have lost touch with everyone from high school and university (been living in Bahamas, etc. for many years) Lloyd was the kind of person one never forgot. He was so intelligent but also always had a laugh to share. He truly left his mark on all who knew him, and Lana and family, my heart aches for your loss. My thoughts are with you.
