Lloyd Emerson Richardson

Sep 4, 1932 - Apr 22, 2013

Born in Vegreveille, Alberta the son of Vivian and Ethyl Richardson, Lloyd was raised by his Uncle Dick and Aunt Leora Gorseline on a Dairy farm in Alberta. Joining the Air Force at 17 Dad rose to the rank of Flying Officer and loved flying jets. This was his favourite of many jobs that he would undertake. Meeting and marrying Elizabeth Letkeman (Betty) in 1954 Dad moved into his next careers as a banker, then a farmer and finally as an entrepreneur before retiring just a few years ago.

Lloyd is survived by his wife Betty, his daughter Susan and his two sons Larry (wife Carole) and Keith (wife Christine); his grandchildren Tim (wife Gretchen), Robin (husband Mike), Rebecca (husband Brent), Allison, Lindsay and Evan; his siblings brothers Gord (wife Sunny), George (wife Keitha), James (wife Suzanne) and sister Lorraine as well as many nephews and nieces. He was predeceased by his brother Elwood many years ago.

Dad will be missed for his humour and his advice. After a 2 year battle with kidney cancer it is now time for Dad to join his best friend Eddie for a game of golf on the heavenly greens. The family wants to thank the staff at Maple Hill Hospice for all of their help and kindness during Dad's final days with us.
