It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our dear husband, father, son, brother, and uncle, Lloyd Garfield Ash, on Saturday, February 6, 2021. Predeceased by his brother Ken, aunt Faye Rowe and father-in-law Bruce Hemmens. Left with beautiful and lasting memories, his loving wife Karen Hemmens, his two daughters Kaitlin and Rebecca, who were his pride and joy; his parents Don and Sylvia Ash, who were blessed to have had the opportunity to know and raise such a beautiful son; mother-in-law Shirley Hemmens; brothers Peter Ash (Chantal), Robert Ash (Marc); special niece Lauren Ash who adored her Uncle Lloyd and his hugs; as well as his uncles Carl Sparkes (Donna), Byron Sparkes (Sandra), and Glen. Lloyd leaves behind a large circle of friends who will miss his friendship and company. Lloyd retired from an over 30-year career with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary where he made lifelong friends who will remember him as an esteemed police officer and dear friend. Lloyd always made time for gatherings with family and friends and those whom he called buddy. He saw the best in everyone. An avid outdoorsman, he made the best of every opportunity to be in a boat or standing at the edge of a pond or river with a fishing rod. At Lloyd’s request, cremation has taken place. Visitation was held at Carnell’s Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road, on Tuesday, February 9 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A service to celebrate his life will be held on Wednesday, August 11, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. at St. Mark’s Anglican Church, Logy Bay Rd. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Daffodil Place.
