Lloyd E. Tompkins
It is with deep sadness that the family of Lloyd Eldon Tompkins of Hanwell, NB, announces his passing on Wednesday, May 27, 2020. Lloyd was born in Woodstock, NB, on May 27, 1943, a son of the late Ashley H. and Elva M. (Collier) Tompkins. In addition to his parents, Lloyd was predeceased by his brother Roy, a niece Vicki Tompkins-Murray, and father-in-law Jack Stephens.
Lloyd was a well respected and dedicated car salesman for many years and later became a much-loved School Bus Driver. Lloyd had a great appreciation for the great outdoors and enjoyed the many years spent with family and friends at the family cottage at Lake George. He loved his camping life and camping family but also loved to water ski, go boating on the lake and go 4 wheeling and snow mobiling with his friends. A sports enthusiast at heart, he loved baseball and playing hockey. He was co-founder of the Atlantic Rentals Hockey Team and the Old Timers Riverview Cougars. Lloyd was Wesleyan by faith.
Lloyd is survived by the love of his life, Marie (Stephens), his devoted companion for 58 years. He is also survived by his mother-in-law Jean Stephens who is 100 years old. He fully supported his family in every way possible and was very proud of his sons, Tony, Troy (Debbie), Ricky (Lynn) and Timmy. His four grandchildren, Jocelynn, Jessica Davis (Matt), Justin and Zack always brought a smile to his face as did his great-grandchildren, Brandon, Alexandria, Zoe and Mason. He will be greatly missed by his only surviving sibling, Candyce Johnson; sister-in-law, Elaine Tompkins as well as a number of nephews and their families.
Due to the Covid-19 health crisis, there will be no public visitation. A celebration of life will take place at a later date.
The family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be sent to the NB Extra-Mural Program, The War Amps or to a charity of your choice.
Lloyd’s family wish to express their gratitude to their friends and neighbours for their kindness and support.
