Lloyd Lorne Davie
Lloyd Lorne Davie passed away on the morning of Wednesday, March 9th, 2022, two days after his 83rd birthday, at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. He would have been disappointed that he missed the breakfast service as the meals were a highlight during his stays at the Wigmore. Lloyd bravely battled leukemia over the past two years, which included intense chemotherapy treatments and several complications. Outgoing by nature, he still maintained strong personal relationships with his many friends and family during this time. Lloyd was born on March 7th, 1939 in Vanguard, Saskatchewan, the second of three boys. As a youth, he was active in sports, including baseball and hockey. In 1965, Lloyd married Lucille (Trach) and together they shared fifty-six years of marriage, a son, George in 1969 and a daughter, Nicole in 1971. Lloyd was also blessed to have three grandchildren whom he saw regularly. When the grandkids came down for a visit from Edmonton, Lloyd would drive halfway to North Battleford to meet them, to get a jump start on the visit and share in the driving. And whether it was playing in the backyard, adventures to the train museum or spoiling them at the Snow Hut, Lloyd’s adoration for his grandchildren was more than obvious. Lloyd was a jack-of-all-trades who excelled in all he did and this was reflected in the various careers that he pursued throughout his lifetime. Lloyd worked as store manager at Safeway before his talents led him to co-own the Allied lumber yard and then Slater & York Menswear. But his proudest accomplishment was the creation of the Crescent View Par 3 golf course. This was an endeavor that he entered into with great enthusiasm and boundless energy. Lloyd was involved in all aspects of creating the golf course including design, construction and management. The golf course quickly became a second home where family and friends would gather to spend time together and share meals. To say that Lloyd was an active person would be an understatement. He enjoyed many pursuits such as curling, fishing and hunting with friends, and was a member of the Moose Jaw Lion’s Club. Lloyd was an avid golfer and would wake up at 5 a.m. to get in 9 holes before the workday began. After his retirement, Lloyd took up woodworking and gardening, in particular growing his tomatoes. He was known for his immaculate lawn and was always ready to advise neighbors on weed control. He enjoyed delivering cars for various dealerships in town, which allowed him to enjoy the scenery throughout western Canada and even took him on an adventure down to Las Vegas. Lloyd’s recent pastimes included playing cards, shooting pool and spending time with friends. He had a soft spot for animals and enjoyed a recent addition to the family, Mia the cat. Her antics and adventures highlighted his days. Lloyd was a strong, kind, loving and supportive husband and father. He valued his family and friends and consistently reached out to lend a helping hand. He will be remembered for his generosity of spirit and time. His upbeat and positive attitude will be missed by all who knew him. Lloyd will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Lucille; son, George (Erin); daughter, Nicole; and grandchildren: Joshua, Keira and Benjamin. A Celebration of Lloyd’s Life will be held on Saturday, May 21st, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home. Those not able to attend are invited to view the service virtually by going to www.moosejawfuneralhome.com/
So very sorry for your loss. Lloyd was such a great man. It was his sense of humor that made it a lot of fun to work at the par 3. And his love of animals was very apparent, with him bringing Brandy to work each day. We were fortunate to bring Brandy in to our home, and continue to love that beautiful dog for many years. Lucille, Nicole, and George you are all in our prayers at this difficult time.
My sincere condolence to Lloyds family I had the pleasure of working with Lloyd for a few years at Allied His sense of humor will always be remembered.
Most heartfelt condolences to all Lloyd’s family. We met Lloyd when he sold for Frank at Bode Implements. I bought my first quad runner from him. After that every time we seen him we would always have a chat. RIP Lloyd. You definitely will be missed. Vern & Woody( Lynds Brothers )
All our love to Auntie Lucy, George and Nik. We will miss Unc’s intense card game advice and his warm hugs at the end of our visits.

Lucille, George and Nicky,
I was so saddened to hear of Lloyd’s passing. I always enjoyed spending time with him. He was funny , interesting and very wise. He always called me Dukey Boy.
I had fun working with him at Slater and York. Along with Reg, we had good times.
May your many happy memories sustain you during this difficult time
He was a wonderful uncle! I’m very grateful to have gotten to know him better over the years and especially to have spent time with him this last spring and summer in Moose Jaw, helping out with their garage sales. He was firm on his prices and usually got what he wanted – a true business man at heart! I’m really going to miss hearing his big booming voice saying ‘Hey there Joanie’ when I call to chat. Auntie Lucy, George & family and Nik – you are in my thoughts. It’s sad to just have memories left, but that is what will keep him with us, so I will remember him often and with love.
So sorry to hear of Lloyd’s passing
Thinking of you Lucille
I happened to join he and another fellow in a round of golf. jokingly I said “ bet you didn’t pay for your round”. He said “ Oh but I did, not as much as you but I did”. The three of us joshed the entire round.
Lucille & family: Our deepest sympathy in the loss of your beloved Lloyd. He was a great guy, always friendly & usually had a story to tell. May he RIP
Lucille and Family,
So sorry to hear of Lloyd’s passing. Cherish the great memories of a super guy, husband and father. Our most sincerest condolences.
Lloyd and Sandi Luhning
So sorry for your loss of a great man.
Lloyd left a positive influence on me and I’m sure on many others. His fun and upbeat attitude left an unforgettable memory on me, and I’m sure, on all who had the privilege of working with him.

So sorry to hear about your father.
So sorry to hear of Lloyds passing. Our deepest sympathies to you and your family. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
Lucille and family. So sorry to hear of Lloyd’s passing although we had just recently heard of his illness. I know he came back strong after his heart surgery. I enjoyed talking to him at the Lynbrook golf course these past few years. From Safeway through all his time in Regina and then Moose Jaw we have always welcomed his hearty hellos and chats. Hugs to all of you and he will be missed by many from his humour to his quick wit. All great memories from your wedding through our lives to the present.
Lucille and Family. We were so saddened to hear of Lloyd’s passing. We are remembering the wonderful friendship we shared, especially during the 60’s …rooming together, laughing and joking, having”good old times!” May all your special memories bring you peace and comfort.
Our caring thoughts and sympathy.
It is with deep regret I learned of Lloyd’s passing. He had been a friend to my parents for many, many years. Lloyd gave me my first job out of high school in 1978 when he owned Allied Lumber. To say he was intelligent, articulate, humorous, and kind would be an understatement. Lloyd always had time for a handshake and visit no matter where he was. I consider myself very lucky to have known him. The world would be a much better place with more “Lloyds” in it and the world was a better place because of Lloyd Davie. He will be sadly missed but fondly remembered.
