Predeceased by his parents Lily Frederia (Currie) Reed and Hugh "Earl" Reed.

Lloyd was born November 20th, 1933 and raised in Salmon Arm. On April 3, 1958, in Salmon Arm he married the love of his life Beverly Ann Maria Nicklason.

Over the years he was actively involved in various service groups like the Salmon Arm Lions Club, 4H, baseball and AA. An amazing artist he shared his skills with many, be it wood work, leather work even colouring. He was also an avid outdoors man, hunting, fishing, camping. He loved growing things, his greenhouse supplied many with fresh veggies and flower starts. The summer and fall garden fed the neighbourhood.

He enjoyed music, played the guitar and harmonica. He liked singing old country music.

His empathy and generosity of spirit was felt by those around him.

He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Lloyd has found his wings and will be there watching over us.
