Lloyd Allen Heskin
December 10, 1940 – October 7, 2017
In loving memory – Lloyd Allen Heskin
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lloyd Heskin on October 7, 2017.
After surviving prostate cancer 7 years ago he succumbed to a short painful battle with myloma bone cancer.
A special thank you to Dr. Elaine Wai from the BC Cancer agency in Victoria for her heartfelt support.
Lloyd is survived by his two loving sisters Elaine (Homer Brunet ) and Marellyn.
He also leaves behind son Ken (Sheila) and daughter Elaine (Steve Rosvold), grandaughters Crystal (Nicholas Schultz), Robyn, Aria, and great granddaughter Kendyll. Lloyd was pre-deceased by his loving grandson Caleb.
Lloyd was born in Norquay Saskatchewan and quickly found his way to the BC coast to work in the bush as a faller during the winter and fishing in the summer. His hard work and determination quickly allowed him to become a successful fishing Captain and owner of the “M.V. Lasqueti Star”.
Lloyd made many friends on the BC Coast and will be sadly missed by all.
A celebration of life will be held at the Fanny Bay OAP Hall (corner of Ship’s Point Road and the South Island Hwy) on Sunday, October 29th at 2:30 pm, please bring your memories and photos to share.
