Lloyd served on many boards and committees, was past president of the RMC Foundation, and a former Canadian Handball Champion. He read voraciously, was a talented artist, an enthusiastic hockey player for sixty years, loved nature and was happiest when paddling his red canoe. Above all, he was the devoted, and dearly loved husband of Mary (Jordan) for fifty one years, best ever dad to Tara (Steve Vanneste), Jennifer (Doug Podmore) and Mark (Kezia Williamson), adoring grandpa of Tyler, Madeline, Caitlin, Liam, Evan, Elliott, Wynn and Rose. Lloyd is also survived by his sisters Laura (Gordon Heimbecker) and Leslie (Gary Wain), and will be fondly remembered by Donna and Don Banham, Barbara Jordan and Allan Morrison, Valerie and Paul Gowsell, Trish and Jon Allen, Helen and Mike Lynch, and by many nieces, nephews, and friends. He was predeceased by his parents Lloyd and Catherine Beverly, sister Lorraine and nephew Christopher. Cremation has taken place, and there will be no visitation or funeral service. A celebration of Lloyd’s life will be held at a later date. Donations to the Alzheimer Society of KFL&A Unit #4- 400 Elliot Avenue, Kingston, Ontario K7M 6M9 would be appreciated by his family.

    I’m very sorry to read of Lloyd Beverly’s death. He was a senior during my recruit year, and an exemplary figure. The photo of him that you’ve published manages happily to convey something of his wit, good humour, gentleness, and unfailing generosity of spirit.

    I was saddened to read about Lloyd’s passing. He was one of the stalwarts on the inaugural Chasse-Galerie canoe trip in 2000. I note in his obituary that he “was happiest when paddling his red canoe.” He was certainly a happy camper on the canoe trip and I remember the cheerful grin on his face as he confidently set the stroke in the bow. I think there’s a limerick out there somewhere that captures his spirit – perhaps his more poetic crewmates, Dave Bingernagel or “Lady” Diana Tremain, may produce one in his honour.
