LLOYD; Kevin Patrick
March 29, 1954 – November 20, 2015
Kevin Patrick Lloyd passed away peacefully at his home, November 20, 2015 at the age of 61. Beloved husband of Karen for 23 years, devoted father of Patrick and Kathleen, and dear brother of Oonagh. Lovingly remembered by nephews and nieces, Jonathon, Emily (son Liam), and Katherine (daughter Bryn) Featherstone, and Sarah, Meagan, and David Hill, mother-in-law Anne Hill (Karl, deceased), brother-in-law Derek Hill (Janet), and Ron Featherstone. He was predeceased by his parents Lawrence and Eileen Lloyd.
He will be fondly remembered by friends, colleagues and students.
Kevin was born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan in 1954. His family moved to Blue River and then to Port Coquitlam where he attended Mary Hill Junior Secondary and Centennial High School. An accomplished man, Kevin attained an Associate Diploma in Arts, Red Seal certification in Heavy Duty Mechanics and Millwright, and a Bachelor’s degree in Education from UBC. His careers included 13 years as a heavy duty mechanic at CN Rail and later as a Technology Education teacher specializing in Automotive for 20 years at Robert Bateman Secondary School in Abbotsford. Kevin met his wife Karen in 1991 and married a year later. Children Patrick and Katie soon followed and they made a home in Langley, BC. He was passionate and dedicated to providing for his family. Kevin enjoyed playing guitar, building computers, completing ‘endless’ projects around the house, and working with cars, wood and metal.
Two of Kevin’s greatest passions were helping people and playing pranks, and his notoriety was legendary in the halls of Robert Bateman Secondary. Everyone’s guard was always up for “Lloyd.” Kevin was always ready and willing to make someone’s life a little bit easier and lighter through his selflessness and his great sense of humour and fun. This, along with his caring nature earned him the love and respect of his students, colleagues and friends. A facebook page in Kevin’s honour called ‘Kevin Lloyd Remembered’ has been created for people to share memories and stories. A special thank-you to Dr. Richard Blackmore and staff, as well as Dr. Sharon Duncan and the palliative nursing team in Langley.
A Celebration of Life will take place on Sunday, November 29, 2015 at 1:00 pm, held at the Langley Golf and Banquet Centre, 21550 44th Ave, Langley BC.
