It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we learned of the death of our colleague and friend, Lloyd Bumstead. Lloyd passed away suddenly from leukemia related complications on March 16th 2023.
Lloyd was a Board Member and Volunteer with the community for nearly 20 years. He was central in creating our hockey rink, skating rink and pathway which were greatly enjoyed by so many people from our neighborhood and from around the city. The hours he devoted to making our rinks was hugely impactful, with hundreds of people using the ice every week during the winter.
I personally first became involved with the Community Association to help maintain the ice, and Lloyd was a great mentor and teacher. He was genuinely excited to see families and kids come to skate, play hockey, and just hang out.
We will all miss Lloyd more than words can express. Our hearts go out to Lloyd’s family at this difficult time. Please keep them in your thoughts.
