September 6, 1934 – May 15, 2012
We announce with great sadness the peaceful passing of Grant Dennis Lloyd of Okotoks, Alberta on Tuesday, May 15, 2012 in Calgary, Alberta, with his loving family by his side.
Grant was born September 6, 1934 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan to Eva and Cecil Lloyd and is survived by his loving wife Bernice of fifty-eight years; son Tracy (Maria); son Todd (Sandra and grandsons Branden and Derek); daughter Tari (Ron Cawston and grandsons Benjamin, Nicholas, and Zachary); and his brother Douglas.
Grant grew up in Moose Jaw where he trained as a Machinist at the CPR alongside his father. In 1960, Grant left the CPR to become an insurance adjuster with Saskatchewan Government Insurance, and in 1962 the family moved to Calgary where he became a partner in Crosland & Peacock Ltd. It was here that he became well known within the insurance industry as one of the first loss adjusters in Canada specializing in oil and gas claims, notably in the high Arctic. In 1974, Grant ventured out with partner Ron Maxwell Hughes to open the firm of Lloyd & Hughes Ltd. In 1999, Grant retired from the industry he loved only to be coaxed out in 2003 by son Tracy to open the Calgary office of Steege Kingston & Associates. In 2008, Grant retired from the industry once again to spend time with Bernice and his grandchildren, always making himself available to shuttle them to and from their activities.
Grant has always been known as a kind, generous, honest and caring sole, with a passion for travel, cars, and of course helping guide his family through life. He will be greatly missed by his loving family and his many friends.
An announcement regarding Grant’s memorial service will be forthcoming. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, the Lloyd family suggest that his friends consider making a charitable donation to help improve the life of someone in need. The family would especially thank the teams of doctors and nurses at the Rockyview General Hospital ICU for their gallant efforts in treating Grant over the past weeks. They truly are exceptional, caring people that deserve special recognition.
