LLOYD PATRICK WOODS, beloved husband of the late Mabel Emma Woods, passed away peacefully at the Chinook Regional Hospital on November 7, 2018, at the age of 88 years.

Lloyd was born in Longford Mills, Ontario in 1930 and, at the age of 17, he came to Alberta to find a job in the oilpatch. He worked for various drilling companies and worked all the jobs on the rig, quickly advancing to the position of Driller. In 1957, while working near Indian Head, Saskatchewan, he met a young widow Mabel Brack (nee Fruin) and her four young children. Together, they moved to Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan in 1959 and Calgary, Alberta in 1961 where Lloyd continued to work in the oilpatch. In 1970, Lloyd started J&L Rock Bit Services and moved to Brooks, Alberta in 1977 to be closer to the clientele. Lloyd retired in 1985 and moved to Lethbridge, Alberta with his daughter in 2005.

Lloyd was known for the force of his personality; he was generous, mischievous, short-tempered, hilarious, tactless, and always big-hearted. He loved children and animals, especially teasing them. He was always the first person to offer to help someone and vehemently stood-up for the underdog. His late wife lovingly called him a “diamond in the rough”. In his younger days he loved hunting and fishing and always had a beloved Labrador retriever at his side.

Left to mourn his absence are his daughter Shelley Woods (Darryle Thiessen) of Lethbridge; his step-children Jim (Christine) Brack of Brooks, Mavis Walyuchow of Medicine Hat and Richard (Linda) Brack of Calgary; ten grand-children and numerous great-grandchildren. Lloyd was pre-deceased by his beloved wife Mabel Woods, his step-son Marvin Brack, his parents Thomas and Sarah Woods, and his four older siblings.

His family would like to express deep appreciation to all of the staff at St. Therese Villas for their kind care. In the final years of his life, dementia took much from him but his indomitable spirit remained until the end.

As per Lloyd’s wishes, there will be no service.
