Lloyd worked at the department of Energy, Mines and Resources for the federal government in Ottawa for 30 years as an analytical chemist.  He loved to spend time active in the outdoors, in particular skiing, paddling, golf and leisure activities at the cottage.

He was predeceased by his sisters Lynn (Skelly) and Carol (Foerester).  He is survived by his beloved wife Joyce, sons Ken of Ottawa and Bruce of Calgary and grandchildren Ben and Annie of Ottawa.
