Well I sure will miss all the phone calls I got from Uncle Lloyd, he was a very special man. Was always sorry distance kept us from being in closer contact.

We remember Lloyd as brightening everyone's day with his wonderful smile and demeanour. We enjoyed the moments we spent with him at Queens Avenue United and in the Queen's Park Neighborhood. Our deepest sympathies for Norma and the family's loss but what a wonderful life and positive vibes he always exemplified in every way.

Lloyd & Norma welcomed people into the congregation at Queen's Ave United Church and into their home beside Sullivan Park. I enjoyed working with Lloyd for years putting up the angels at Christmas on the screen at the front of the church - his good humour, kindness and giving spirit are forever his swan song! My condolences to Norma and family and the QAUC family.

Lloyd was a gentle man with a very good soul. He made people feel welcome. He worked endlessly for those in the Queens Avenue United Church family. I am sorry I will not be able to attend his celebration of life. My prayers are with Norma and the family.

We, at Queens Avenue United Church, always knew him as Lloyd, one of the most loving, gentle and hard-working creatures the Lord has ever made. Immortalized by his many years of faithful service to his church community, notably in his later years as he and his "buddy" John toiled daily at the Church, keeping if good repair, and making it the welcoming place it is. May you rest in Peace, as you will rest in the hearts of all who knew you.

Lloyd was a true gentleman, slow to anger, always a kind word, always ready and willing to help. The world was richer with him on it. He will be missed.
