Robert Lloyd King May 5, 1934 – June 2, 2010
Of Irish descent Robert Lloyd was born on May 5th, 1934 in Meadow Lake Saskatchewan to Henrietta Ralph and Thomas King. Bob was a soft spoken and loving man who provided well for his family. Throughout his life he was known as an intelligent and hard-working man, with a witty sense of humour. Bob retired early from his trade as a Cat Operator (Local 115) and spent the later years of his life focusing his passion for carpentry on developing lands and renovating houses. For years he beat all odds in battling ongoing health concerns until his peaceful passing on June 2nd, 2010. Predeceased by his parents, siblings, and his youngest daughter Peggy, he will be sorrowfully missed by his wife of fifty-six years, Elaine; alongside his remaining children Robert, Shirley, and Pauline; his son-in-laws Terry, Rick, and Paul; his grandchildren Michael, Brian, Kenny, Mallory, James, Desiree and Crystal; as well as his great grandchildren Victoria, Oliver, and Naish. A celebration to honour his life will be held at 10:00am on June 11th at the Salvation Army Church, 1480 Sutherland Drive Kelowna, BC. Reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made at the central Okanagan Hospice House, 2035 Ethel Street, Kelowna, BC, telephone: 250-862-4126.
