Lloyd Slater, the loving husband of Sharon, her one true love of more than 28 years. He is survived by his two devoted daughters, Jackie (Graham) and Christina. Sadly missed already by his mother, Norah; his siblings: Stephen (Bev), Gale (Frank), Neil, Shirley (Walter), and Richard; his ten nieces and nephews; and six great nieces and nephews who all fondly remember their Uncle Lloyd for his “big kid with a huge heart” manner. Lloyd is also missed by his in-laws, Jack and Elsie Smith, and brother-in-law, Larry.

Lloyd’s passions were his family and his boats, which accommodated the entire family. Loved and respected by any and all who knew him, for his generosity and his willingness to travel miles just to see you. Lloyd was self-less, responsible, a hardworking rigger and an all around great guy. He lived life to the fullest.

Born in Edmonton on December 22, 1960, he died on July 7, 2013. Lloyd dedicated 36 years to the oil patch, often working with his brothers, and loved his job. He was just forming his retirement plan. His pride and joy were his two daughters who both excelled in life, like their Dad, and his “little man”, Toby, the dog.

A celebration of Lloyd’s life will be held on Saturday, July 13th, 2013 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Vernon Yacht Club.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Vernon SPCA, 4800 Haney Road, Vernon, B. C. V1H 1P6 in honour of Lloyd’s love of animals. Arrangements have been entrusted to Pleasant Valley Funeral Home. (Phone: 250-542-4333) Condolences may be offered at
