Lloyd Porter

January 26, 1934 - October 9, 2014

Tribute

Lloyd passed away peacefully October 9, 2014 at Valley Haven Comfort Home.  He was born in LeRoy, Saskatchewan on January 26, 1934.  The family moved to the coast when he was 8 and later to Chilliwack where he spent his school years.  Lloyd`s early years of working were in logging.  In 1957 he met Sonja, the love of his life, and they married in 1958 and later had a daughter Tamara and a son Patrick.  From 1961 – 2001 he was a line driver trucker.  Lloyd loved his trucking days, the scenery and nature, and was always happy to report that he saw the first calf born each spring.  He leaves behind his wife Sonja of 56 years; his daughter Tamara; two sisters, Lois and Elizabeth and many nieces and nephews and a special friend of the family, Janet.  He will also be dearly missed by his three furry friends Holly, Peppi and Casey.  Lloyd was predeceased by his son Patrick, two brothers Keith and Ken and two sisters Phyllis and Rita.  The family would like to thank Dr. Krakower and the nurses and staff at Valley Haven for the exemplary care they gave to Lloyd.   Lloyd loved life and was known for his Irish `Blarney`.  There will be a private celebration of life at a later date.
