MAYERT, Lloyd Gordon
Lloyd, age 81, passed away suddenly on April 26, 2019 at his home in Candle Lake, SK. He was born in Leroy, SK on February 2, 1938. He was predeceased by his parents Sam and Clara Mayert; and brother Ken. He is survived by his children Brenda (Bob) Hill, Curtis (Kim) Mayert and Todd Mayert; grandchildren Cindy (Andrew) Bird, Bryan (Jazmyne) Hill, Kade Mayert and Hailey Mayert; great-grandchildren Aslyn and Emerson Bird; and brothers Roger (Ann) Mayert and Wayne (Marlene) Mayert. After attending school in Leroy, Lloyd worked numerous jobs before he started with CPR. In 1966 he was hired on with the Saskatoon Fire Department. There he rose to the rank of Captain. He remained with the SFD until he retired at the age of 60 with 32 years of service. During his many years on the fire department he moonlighted doing many jobs which kept him busy with his time off. Lloyd enjoyed many hobbies and interests. In his younger years he enjoyed competitive fastball. He was a talented carpenter, enjoyed curling, hunting and one of his favourite activities was fishing. In his youth he enjoyed riding his motorcycle and he always had an eye for a nice car. Through the years he enjoyed many family holidays to BC, Alberta, California and the Maritimes. He especially enjoyed his time fishing many northern lakes in the summer. He rarely came off the boat without a nice catch. One of his favourite places was Candle Lake where he built a family cabin where many memories were made. Lloyd will be remembered as a hard worker, good provider for his family, always there to lend a hand, especially for family and friends. In his later years, he spent many winters as a snowbird and spent his time at the lake in the summer, where he enjoyed visiting with family and friends. He could always spark up a conversation with anyone. The family wishes to thank the Candle Lake First Responders. In Lloyd’s retirement, he made Candle Lake his home. A Celebration of Lloyd’s Life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, May 13, 2019 at Windsor Chapel (704 Windsor St.) in Saskatoon. Memorial donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation (26-1738 Quebec Ave, Saskatoon, SK S7K 1V9). Arrangements in care of Chelsea Krentz – Mourning Glory Funeral Services (306) 978-5200.
