TIGAR, Lloyd Nelson (Bud) February 11, 1921 - December 24, 2012 Bud passed away peacefully December 24 at Broadmead Lodge at the age of 91. He was born in Coughlan, BC, the youngest child of a family of two brothers and one sister. After leaving school, he took up a variety of jobs, and at an early age began working for MacMillan Bloedel. He became a salesman, first in Vancouver and then Prince George. In 1976, he was awarded Salesman of the Year in Northern BC, and again in 1977. The awards recognized his hard work and concern for his responsibilities. After working 45 years for MacBlo, he retired at the age of 62 and moved to Sidney, BC, where he lived happily many years. In 1941, Bud married Margaret Helen Woodfield. They had a daughter Arlene. During WWII, he served overseas with the Royal Canadian Air Force. In November 2012, Bud and Margaret celebrated their 71st anniversary. Bud was loved for his wonderful sense of humour and smile, his kindness, gentleness and care for others. He was predeceased by his brother Bert and sister Olive and is survived by his wife, daughter, son-in-law Angus, grandson Jesse and 3 nieces and 5 nephews. Margaret, Arlene, Angus and Jesse would like to thank the staff of the Victoria General Hospital for their expert treatment of Bud. His family is especially grateful to the many people – staff, volunteers, companions – at Broadmead Lodge for their compassionate care. They provided Bud with much warmth and kindness. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Broadmead Care Society (4579 Chatterton Way, Victoria BC, V8X 4Y7).
