John Roland Lloy

John Roland Lloy, of Stellarton and formerly of Sydney, passed away peacefully at the QE II hospital on Monday, June 30, with his family at his side.

Born in Halifax on February 4, 1921, John volunteered for service in the Canadian Navy during WWII and served overseas for 3 years. When he returned home, John followed in the tradition of his father and had a long and successful career with the CNR extending over 45 years.

John�s devotion to his family, particularly to his late wife Elizabeth during her illness, was an indication of his kind and caring nature. He was a true gentleman, for whom duty, family, church and an appreciation of simple blessings were the cornerstones of his well-lived life. A loyal member of East Gate Lodge of Westmount, Cape Breton and then Keith Lodge of Stellarton, John received his 50 year jewel in the Masonic Order.

John is survived by his daughter, Sharon (Elmer) MacKay of Lorne, and his son, Doug of Stellarton. Besides his parents, Roland and Catherine (Sadie) Lloy of Halifax, John was predeceased in 2000 by his beloved wife of 54 years, Elizabeth (Baylee) Lloy of Pictou County. He was also predeceased by his sister, Marg Armstrong of Ottawa.

The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to Beth MacDonald and Nancy Terris whose exceptional kindness and dedication as caregivers will always be remembered.

There will be no visitation by request.  Keith Masonic Lodge No. 23 will meet at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the R.H. Porter Funeral Home New Glasgow to conduct their service.

The funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, July 3, at Christ Anglican Church, Stellarton with Archdeacon Peter Armstrong officiating. Burial in Christ Anglican Church Cemetery.  Reception to follow. Family flowers only please.

Donations in John�s memory may be made to Christ Anglican Church, Bridge Avenue, Stellarton, B0K 1S0 or to World Vision, 1 World Dr, Mississauga, ON, L5T 2Y4.

We love you, John, and give thanks for the extraordinary gift of your life to us.
