  2. I didn’t see you much after we left Calgary, Lloyd, but I remember well your stories of your service on Corvette’s in the Atlantic during the war, sitting well-sites as an early landman in the oil patch in the depths of prairie winters and your gentle rebukes to my brothers and I for teasing your young daughters many moons ago.
    I always enjoyed your company and the world will be a sadder place without you. God speed and enjoy the java up there with the boys!

  4. Danny and Phyllis Duncan :

    With sadness on hearing the news of Lloyd’s sudden passing, Loyd and I worked together for Gulf Canada for many years in Sasktchewan where he managed the surveying, wellsite and access construction and reclamation projects. He had an incredible technique for dealing with cantankerous land owners and local contractors, an art I have often used in subsequent years. We will miss seeing him at his 3:00 pm routine at the Soutland Leisure Centre with our ongoing discussion on politics and other world events as well as the occasional chats at A&W. Rest in peace Lloyd, keep on peddling.
