Lloyd is predeceased by his father, Vernon Smith; grandparents, Ernest & Gertrude Smith, William & Alice Arnold; father-in-law & mother-in-law Leonard & Emma Aubrey; and brother-in-law Leon Aubrey.

God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be; so he put his arms around you, and whispered, “Come with me”. With tearful eyes we watched you suffer, and saw you fade away; although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.  A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best.”

Thank you to the staff and doctors of the Cross Cancer Institute for their care and compassion shown to Lloyd and the family.
