I wish to send my condolences to Lloyds family members. Lloyd and I began our Drafting course in Grand Falls way back in the 60s. We had a good time together as Lloyd would come home with me and we would “dig” into the books and Lloyd was my mentor for the math courses we had to take. I moved out west after graduation and lost contact with Lloyd. I also remember his father Reg who was an inspiration to me. May he rest in peace.

To Linda, Nancy and Jennifer: So saddened to hear of Lloyd’s passing. Hope that being surrounded by your family and friends helps the days ahead. Thinking of you.

To Linda and daughters Nancy and Jennifer :
I am so saddened to hear of Lloyd’s passing. Today my mind goes back to the great times Lloyd and I and Hector Greening had back in the late seventies when Lloyd was my boss and friend at Viking Construction. The good times we had at your trailer in Terra Nova lake are permanently etched in my memory. Lloyd was a true gentleman who loved his work, loved his family, loved the outdoors and loved flying in Vikings bush plane. And yes Lloyd was a man of faith. Rest in peace my friend.

To the Samson Family:
Sorry to hear of Lloyd’s passing. I got to know Lloyd from working on several construction jobs that he was in charge of. Lloyd treated everyone with respect, he didn’t care if you were the garbage man or the Company owner– you were treated the same because he realized we all had to work togeather to be successful . Please be assured of our thoughts and prayers now and in the future .🙏.

Linda & daughters, and Doreen & family, We are so sorry for the terrible loss of your husband/father/brother.
Thinking of you all at this difficult time. May your wonderful memories of happier times gone by sustain you in the days to come. With sincere sympathy, Nancy (Sainsbury) Parsons

We enjoyed his chats and stories immensely. The pride and love for his family was evident from the moment we met him. So sorry for your loss, as we know it is a great one. We will certainly miss his visits “up on the knob”. Treasure his love of life and your memories.

I want to express my deepest condolences to the family. I’ve known Lloyd through business since the 70’s. He was one on the nicest persons I ever met in the construction business. He treated everyone with respect and was very fair in his dealings. I have many fond memories of visiting job sites together in the 70’s and 80’s. Take comfort from the good memories and knowing that’s he’s asleep and at peace.
