Prowse, Stanley Lloyd “Papa” February 7, 1926 – October 6, 2020

It is with heartfelt sorrow that the family announces the passing of Lloyd Prowse at his residence in Lively on Tuesday, October 6, 2020 with loving family at his side. Loving husband and lifelong partner of the late Ruth Prowse (nee Brimicombe). Beloved father of Gary (Veronica), Wayne (Kathie) and Carol (Ken Cull). Cherished Papa to Jennifer (Brent), Steve, Kim (Steve), Stephanie (Greg), Chris (Jenn), Nick (Shanna) and Andrew. Loving great grandfather “Papa/Poppy” of Riley (Taya), Alyssa, Raya (Jay), Travis, Lily, Ben, Hannah, Elaina, Patrick, Maddi, Abbi and Landon. Great great Grandfather of Brent. Born in Kingston, P.E.I and grew up in Great Village, Nova Scotia, he was the son of the late Stanley and Vinnie Prowse (nee Trowsdale). He is survived by brother-in-law Vincent and sister-in-law Pearle. Predeceased by siblings Helen, Eleanor and Alvin. Lloyd loved life and enjoyed many years traveling across Canada and USA. Since retiring as a Diesel Mechanic with INCO, he worked underground at Creighton Mine, Lloyd has made Lively his home since 1952. His love for dancing, playing cards and following the Leafs and Blue Jays with his sons was something he looked forward to. He will be missed by all his Cedarbrook friends. The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to Dr. Michael, Dr. Carlson and Dr. Luison and a very special thank you to his ICAN girls, who allowed him to stay in his own home until the end with love and assistance. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a Celebration of Lloyd’s life will follow at a later date.

  7. Gary, Wayne and Carol: I was sorry to hear about the passing of your father two days ago. He was a real character and seemed to live life to its fullest. He and your mother were good friends of my / our mother and father. They spent many hours around the kitchen table with a bottle of rum and deck of cards. (The rum part was not on our mothers agenda). If the table was still around you could be certain to find a few dents caused by Lloyd pounding the table to celebrate another win; and he had many. No doubt they are up above, sitting around a card table bragging about kids and grandkids.

  9. I am saddened to hear of the passing of Lloyd. Lloyd was “one of a kind”. Lloyd was quick to share stories of his beloved wife Ruth, their children, grand children and great grand children. Lloyd was joyful, quick witted man blessed with a great sense of humour, who loved to share a good joke or two. Lloyd enjoyed playing cards, loved music and loved to dance. I will certainly miss Lloyd as a fellow tenant here at Cedarbrook. My sincere condolences to Loy’s family. Rest In Peace Lloyd.

  11. So very sorry for your loss. He really is a loss to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. We will certainly miss Papa. He was such a special person. Loved life to its fullest! It was a joy to just be in his presence and hear his hardy laugh. I will miss waltzing with him. He sure could dance and never had a problem finding a partner. We were often lined up just waiting for our turn. A real gentleman and a gentle soul. I’m sure you will be watching all of us from above. Rest In Peace Papa 💕
