Lloyd Anderson

1929 – 2019

It is with great sadness to announce the passing of our father Lloyd Allan Anderson on August 10, 2019. Lloyd was raised in the Carmangay area and farmed until his retirement in 2004 when he moved to Lethbridge. He was an active community member belonging to several clubs and organizations. These included the Lion’s and Mason’s Clubs, a board member at the Seed Cleaning Plant, the Barons Regional Electrical Association, and the Prairie Tractor and Engine Museum. He sought out new knowledge attending seminars and courses to add to his list of skills: carpenter, welder, plumber, electrician, mechanic, and any other trade required by an independent farmer. He enjoyed tinkering with antique tractors, cars and trucks. He was an avid auction sale attendee bringing home boxes of treasures or tractors in various states of repair. He thought nothing of getting up at four in the morning, driving to Saskatchewan, attending an auction sale, driving home and unloading the trailer near midnight, even at 78 years of age.

Lloyd was a generous man and would go out of his way to help anyone out. He expected nothing in return. Not always an easy man to live with, Lloyd none the less was a good provider for his family, worked hard, and possessed integrity and honesty. Lloyd suffered a stroke in his later years which robbed him of his independence and true enjoyment of his retirement years, but he persevered with a stubbornness until the age of 90. Lloyd was predeceased by his wife Gill. He is survived by his four children; Carolyn (David) McCluskey, Simon Anderson (Rolanda Richard), Nancy Anderson, and Stephen (Betty) Anderson, and granddaughters Kiana and Kaitlin. A Graveside Service will be held at 2:00pm, on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at BOWVILLE CEMETERY, Range Road 220, Carmangay, Alberta, with Pastor Al Litchfield, officiating. For those who wish, donations may be made in Lloyd’s name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta, Box 2211, Lethbridge, Alberta T1J 4K7 or the Canadian Diabetes Association, 204, 2323 – 32nd Avenue NE, Calgary, Alberta T2E 6Z3.
