Sanderson, Lloyd Charles

After a long and gradual decline, Lloyd passed quietly at Southlake Residential Care Village, Newmarket, Ontario, on Friday, January 10th, 2020, in his 96th year. Lloyd was born in Richmond Hill and lived there for over 92 years, before moving to Southlake.

The second son of Charles Herbert Sanderson and Grace Boynton, Lloyd was predeceased in 2017 by his wife of almost 64 years, Doris Eileen Bowyer, by his brother Harold in 2001, and by Harold’s widow, Gwen Sayers, in 2009.

Dad is survived by sons Neil (Judee Vidal) of Auckland, New Zealand and Ron (Linda) of Oakville, daughter Marilyn (Livio Persi) of Newmarket, his four grandsons, Steven, Trevor, Joshua and Jacob Persi, and by many nieces and nephews.

A graduate of Richmond Hill Public School (later M. L. McConaghy) and Richmond Hill High School, Dad started his working life with a Toronto paint company. He slipped a note to Mom one day in their carpool, asking her to the Ice Capades. She agreed, and they were inseparable for the rest of her life.

Dad left the paint company and joined the provincial government in human resources in the early 1960s, retiring in 1980.

A quiet, reserved, man, Dad was a carpenter’s son, and seemed happiest building something from nothing, working in the garden, or on lucky occasions, helping out on a friend’s farm. Dad shunned the limelight, but was always there to support others, especially Mom in her good works.

Special thanks to the staff at Southlake Residential Care Village for their care of Dad.

Friends and family may call at MARSHALL FUNERAL HOME, 10366 Yonge Street, Richmond Hill, on Thursday January 16th from 6-8 p.m. Funeral service in the chapel on Friday January 17th at 2 p.m. with visitation 1 hour prior. Interment Victoria Square Cemetery.

So sorry to hear about the passing of your Dad. Your Mom and Dad were always so kind to my Mom. They checked in on her regularly, especially in her later years. We couldn’t have had better neighbours.

Lloyd and our father Allan were very close friends that began as young boys at school right up until they were members of the McConaghy Old Boys Club. We know that our dad cherished this life-long friendship very much.

Our hearts go out to your family.

I understand how difficult this time is dear Ron and Linda. May memories of a loved Dad bring you peace and comfort. May you also know that he is at peace and back with the love of his life. Thinking of you both over the next days, weeks and months as you mourn, grieve and remember with love.
