Tribute

CHESTER DONALD LLOYD
August 20, 1910 – November 15, 2009

Passed away peacefully at the Cowichan District Hospital, Duncan, BC., after a lengthy illness. He was the fourth of eight sons and one sister, born to John and Alice Lloyd of Unity, Saskatchewan. He worked in mines, farms and lumber mills from the home place to Quill Lake, Sask., Sudbury, Ontario, Red Deer Alberta, and to Duncan by 1939. In 1946, he married his first wife, Dorothy Ruth Powell of Duncan, BC and had three daughters, Shirley, Jean and Joan. In 1971, Dorothy died of cancer and in 1975, Chester retired from the Department of Highways, where he worked for twenty eight years. That same year, and to present, he married his second wife, Jennie Kerrone of Duncan, BC. and resided first at Brownsey Avenue, then at Wedgewood House. Predeceased by his first wife, Dorothy, and his great granddaughter, Amanda, he is survived by daughters, Shirley Sell (David), Jean Wilcox (Lorne), Joan Heskin (Gary), and his grandchildren, Neil (Angie), Aron (Natalie), Jeremy (Nicole), Marty (Tammy), Aimee (Adrien), Brad (Erin), Kim (Simon), and great grandchildren, Daxtyn, Rhys, Gary-Lee, and Katrina, brothers in Unity, Sask., Roy and Reg Lloyd, and numerous nieces and nephews. While Dad & Jennie lived on Brownsey Avenue, you could see him venturing off on his scooter down to the Senior Center just about every day where he enjoyed the lawn bowling and visiting with his many friends. He also enjoyed his coffee buddies, Reg, John, Fred, Mike and Jim, at the Silver Bridge Inn every Saturday. Dad was also a member of the Duncan United Church A.O.T.S. men’s group for many years. Thank you to neighbour, Reg Brownsey who was a great pal to Dad & Jennie while they lived on Brownsey Avenue, and still continues to be. Thank you to Dr. Gilbert and to all of the nurses on 2nd Floor South for all the excellent care in the five weeks he was there. A celebration of life will be held on at the Duncan United Church, 246 Ingram St., Duncan BC on Friday, Nov. 20th, 2009 at 11:00am. Tea to follow at the United Church Hall. Internment to follow at the Mountain View Cemetery. Flowers gratefully declined. Donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or to a charity of your choice.

Thinking of you all at this sad time. It doesn’t matter how old we are, it’s always hard to lose a parent/grandparent. Your Dad was always one of my favourites, and you must be proud of the long life he lived. Our deepest sympathy. Take Care.

From:

We were so sorry to hear about Uncle Chester’s passing. He’s one of the last of the original family, and my father and mother spoke of him as a gentle, good natured man. As you probably know, he stayed with them in Sudbury while working in the mines. He had a long, productive life and we know you’ll miss him. With our sympathy, Marilynn and Norman Reynolds family
