It is with great sad­ness that the fam­ily of Lloyd Yet­man an­nounce his peace­ful pass­ing at the James Pey­ton Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal in Gan­der on Jan­uary 22, 2018 at the age of 90. Pre­de­ceased by his par­ents Joseph and Pearl (Davis) and brother George, he leaves to mourn with fond, lov­ing mem­o­ries his wife of 64 years, Neta (Lang­don), son Glenn (San­dra) of Dart­mouth, N.S., daugh­ter An­drea Far­well (Percy) of Gan­der, and grand­chil­dren Daniel Yet­man and Matthew and Julien Far­well as well as lov­ing nieces and neph­ews and a large cir­cle of friends. Born in 1927 at New­town, B.B., Lloyd has been a res­i­dent of Gan­der since ar­riv­ing in 1949 to em­bark on a ca­reer as a Cus­toms Of­fi­cer. He has been a mem­ber of Gan­der Ma­sonic Lodge since 1959 and was a found­ing mem­ber of Air­ways Lodge. A de­voted fol­lower of his “mighty Cana­di­ens” and “mighty Dodgers” in pro­fes­sional hockey and base­ball, Lloyd, along with his bud­dies Jimmy Bartlett and Harry Wise­man, were leg­endary sup­port­ers of the Gan­der Fly­ers in the glory days of pro­vin­cial se­nior hockey, where play­ers, of­fi­cials, and fel­low fans re­call their bois­ter­ous, if not al­ways sober, sup­port for their team. “Poor Lloyd” will al­ways be re­mem­bered as a kind and gen­er­ous man who was de­voted to his fam­ily, lived life to the fullest, treated peo­ple with re­spect, wished no harm to any­one, and pos­sessed a strong, unas­sum­ing faith. Cre­ma­tion has taken place. In­ter­ment at a later date. Ar­range­ments en­trusted to Stacey’s Fu­neral Home, Gan­der. Please visit www.staceysfu­ner­al­home.ca to leave a mes­sage of con­do­lence for the fam­ily.
