1922 - 2012
Lloyd Sproule passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 3, 2012 at Nanaimo Seniors Village. He was 89 years old.
Many long-time Nanaimo residents will remember Lloyd as a prominent local lawyer for over thirty years. He was a model for community service volunteering his time and energy through such organizations as the Nanaimo Community Foundation, The Royal Canadian Legion, Rotary Club, Kiwanis and the Mount Benson Senior Citizens Housing Society, to name just a few.
Born near Watson Saskatchewan, December 18, 1922, Lloyd served honourably in World War II. After the War, Lloyd obtained his degree as a Civil Engineer from the University of Saskatchewan. Lloyd worked for over 15 years as a Civil Engineer before returning to the University of British Columbia to obtain a law degree. He articled in Nanaimo and when called to the bar, decided to set up practice in Nanaimo in 1966. A lifelong carpenter and builder, Lloyd was never happier than when he had a hammer in his hand working on a new project or renovation. On several occasions he would muse: "Many lawyers in this town made a lot more money than me, but I'm the only one who ever wore out a shovel."
Lloyd was predeceased by his daughter Lee and his sister Geraldine. Lloyd is survived by his wife of 61 years, Doris, his son George (Diane) and brothers Ron (June) and Finn (Faye) . As per his wishes, there will be no service.
In lieu of flowers, the family would request that you make a donation to a local charity in remembrance of Lloyd Sproule.
