Lloyd Thoreson

THORESON: Lloyd passed away peacefully at the Swift Current hospital after a short and courageous battle with cancer. He was born at the family farm at Snake Hole Lake, six miles South of Cabri, SK. He attended Panorama school and was deeply saddened when it was burned down in 2013. After working at various jobs and travelling, he settled in Kamloops, BC for 27 years. Lloyd was an active member of the Royal Canadian Legion wherever he hung his hat. He made three trips to Scotland which he loved almost as much as getting in the car and driving down the highway just to see how the calving was doing, or how the crops were growing while enjoying the beautiful sunsets as he did his last time out. He enjoyed playing cards and would travel many miles to do so, and as he was not a church going man, the cards were his bible. Lloyd’s other love was family reunions where he had the opportunity to renew friendships and play horseshoes for a chance at winning the coveted trophy (which he won once or twice). In his later years he loved to drive taxi in Gull Lake, SK. The one thing you could always count on was that he would always help out regardless of the miles between him.
Lloyd is survived by his wife and best friend Edna of 37 years; sons, Doug of Vancouver, BC, Orvill of Winnipeg, MB, Ian of Swift Current, SK, and Darren of Dawson Creek, BC; daughters, Wanda of Regina, SK, Carla of Kamloops, BC, and Julie of Vancouver, BC, and their spouses; 11 grandchildren; two great grandsons; sister Elvina (John) Sloan of Hazlet, SK; brother Jim (Pat) of Winfield, AB; and numerous nieces and nephews. Lloyd was very proud of all of their accomplishments.
He is predeceased by his parents Albert and Grace; brothers Edwin in 2005, Ronnie in 1999, and Allen in 2013; two sister-in-laws; a nephew Brian age 8 years; and a great nephew Bradley age 5 years.
We are glad his pain was short and he left us HIS way. Lovingly remembered and greatly missed by all his family and friends.

As Lloyd had requested, no service will be held. There will be a come and go tea held from the Gull Lake Seniors Hall on Saturday April 5, 2014 from 2pm until 4 pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sandra Schmirller Foundation which provides care for pre-mature and critically ill newborns.
