January 31, 1938 – February 24, 2022
Lloyd Gordon Anderson was born in Swift Current, Saskatchewan on January 31st, 1938, to Walter and Alice Anderson and received his early education in Waldeck and Swift Current, Saskatchewan. In 1961, Lloyd graduated from the Full Gospel Bible Institute (FGBI), now known as Eston College, where he met Marlene Walton. After graduation, Lloyd married Marlene on July 29th, 1961, initially settling in Regina, Saskatchewan where he worked with Canadian Pacific Railways (CPR) installing signals at railway crossings. After having three sons and relocating several times to Indian Head, Yorkton, Moose Jaw and Saskatoon, they ultimately settled down in Calgary, Alberta. During this time Lloyd did what Lloyd did best; sales. First he was found selling shoes at Furman Shoe Store, then selling cleaning and sanitary supplies with Fuller Brush Company, then G.H. Wood and Company. After the move to Calgary in 1971, he bought Woods Monumental Company Ltd in 1976, where he sold monuments and memorials. After sustaining a back injury, the business was sold in 1980 and Lloyd continued in sales in many different ventures.
Lloyd was always active in his church and held several leadership roles. After 37 years of marriage, Lloyd and Marlene divorced in 1997, but Lloyd later again found happiness when he met and married Janet Casey on September 19th, 1998. After residing in Calgary, Airdrie, Vermillion and High River, they eventually settled in the Shuswap Lake region of B.C., ultimately ending up in Vernon. After nearly 22 years of marriage, Lloyd and Janet later divorced in early 2020 and Lloyd remained in Vernon where he found a home with many friends. He could always be found encouraging a friend over a cup of coffee.
Lloyd was called Home to be with his Lord and Savior on February 24th, 2022 at the age of 84 years and he will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by his family and friends. He is survived by two sons, Kent (Hang) of Boerne, Texas and Sheldon (Dana) of Orlando, Florida; four grandchildren, Rachel, Dylan, Jude and Avery; two sisters, Sharron Beisel of Calgary, Alberta and Anne Weatherall of Kyle, Saskatchewan; one brother, Wally (Gloria) Dyck of Swift Current, Saskatchewan; numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members. He was preceded in death by one brother, Alfred in 1977, his father, Walter in 1981, one son, Daniel in 1983, his mother, Alice Surerus in 2004, a brother-in-law, William Weatherall in 2009, one sister, Lorraine Marshall in 2016 and a brother-in-law, Brenton Marshall in 2021.
In respecting Lloyd’s wishes, he was cremated and a Memorial Service will be held at the Landing Church, 5871 Okanagan Landing Road, on Saturday, March 12th, 2022 at 2:00 P.M. with interment following at a later date. The Memorial Service will be live-streamed on the Church and Facebook page. For more information please contact the church at 250-542-8011.
Two favorite Gospel songs Lloyd would want to leave us all with are “Because He Lives” and “I Sing Praises To His Name.” Because Jesus lives, Lloyd is today indeed singing praises to His name like he has never done before.
