Lloyd loved all of his nieces and nephews but had a close relationship with his special niece Lorraine (Snow) Lever. . Lloyd was predeceased by his parents Albert and Daisy Snow, his brothers; Freddy, Roy, William (Babe Willie), as well as sisters Myrtle, Violet, Alma and Emma. Lloyd lived his younger years working as a taxi driver in Dominion, where he met his wife Vange, from there, they moved to Boston and were married. One year later, their son Marty was born. Lloyd worked in Building and Property maintenance positions to support his new family and remained in Boston for about 6 years. Afterward they moved back to Reserve Mines with their young son Marty and 10 years after the birth of their first son they were blessed with another son, Brad. From there he would go on to work in the Coal Mines and Construction. Lloyd was well respected in construction, and was known to outwork the “younger fellas” on the job. He was affectionately known to his closest industry friends as “Snow Ball.” Lloyd had the reputation of a worker who could do the work of two men. He worked for many companies including Lingan Construction. He was an active member of the Laborers’ International Local Union 1115, Cape Breton. Lloyd was known for being a man’s man. He always had a strong work ethic and even in his later years he would get up at the crack of dawn to go for his walk at the boardwalk and work on projects in his barn, these were some of his favorite pastimes. He and his wife Vange took great pride in their home and worked to renovate and do yard work together. He was a man of few words but when he had something to say, everyone listened. Lloyd loved a good joke and had the best hearty laugh. Lloyd chose to live a simple life and was always content with what he had and never complained. Some of his best times were spent listening to fiddle music with a hot toddy in his hand and a feed of lobsters in front of him. Lloyd loved watching the Toronto Maple Leafs and Blue Jays and was lucky to take a trip to see a live Blue Jays game with Marty, Brad, Riley and Yolanda. He was always very proud of his sons Marty and Brad and their many accomplishments in life. Lloyd took great pride in his grandchildren and loved attending his grandson Riley’s hockey games and boxing matches. Riley would always chat with Lloyd about fishing and got lots of good pointers from his Poppy. They had a very close relationship. He looked forward to visits from April dawn, Eli and Quinn when they came home from Alberta, the kids would always be greeted with a big hug and kisses on the lips. Rest in peace Lloyd, you will be missed as a husband, “Da Bud”, Poppy, Friend and Neighbor. Cremation has taken place under the care and guidance of T.J.
