Lloyd Kenneth, of Abbotsford, BC, passed away peacefully July 16, 2005 after a brief but difficult struggle with cancer.
Lloyd will be forever missed by his wife Alyce-Anne; by his children Lindsay (Laura), Laurie Jordan, (Ron) and Robin Schooley (Randy); by his grandchildren Jordan, Tyler, Bryce, Shawna and Aidan; and by his brothers Clayton (Barb), and Art (Lena) and sister Evelyn Youngblut (Lloyd). Born March 24, 1934 in Niagara Falls, Lloyd leaves behind memories of a man with a huge heart, a big smile and booming voice, and an unflinching love and pride for his family. He was a man of simple joys who reveled in a good meal with his family, the togetherness of a backyard barbeque, a good game of bingo and a good (or even a bad) day of fishing. Never one to miss an opportunity to share stories of his life with people, Lloyd made friends
easily and quickly. When asked why he’d tell his life story to any old stranger, he’d respond by saying that once you talk to people, they’re no longer strangers. When Lloyd retired from Overwaitea Foods, he did so proudly. He considered his job one of his biggest accomplishments; the other was his life in music. George Jones has lost his biggest fan and the sun has forever gone down on Lloyd Ferguson and the Sundowners, the country band he fronted for many years before giving it up to dedicate his time to his job and his family.
Thank you dad, husband, and friend for bringing so much light, music and joy into the lives of everyone you knew. A celebration of Lloyd’s life will be held on Saturday, July 23, 2005 at
11:00 am in the tea room at Henderson’s Funeral Home, 34537 Marshall Road, Abbotsford.
