It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my father, Lloyd Edward Coleman on Tuesday March 22, 2022.  Dad was born in Chatham on December 22, 1951 to the late George & Margaret (Stevens) Coleman.  He grew up with his sister Penny Deman (John) and two brothers Ric Coleman (Sue) and Chris Coleman (Sandi).

Dad was an adventurous man who preferred to live a nomadic lifestyle.  His travels took him all over the world including Africa, Costa Rica, Korea and Italy, as well as a 40-day backpacking excursion through Australia.  He loved the outdoors, slept in an igloo, canoed and fished as often as he could.  He especially appreciated the beauty of Thunder Bay.  Having a daughter who served in the military was exciting for him because he got to visit every country and every U.S. state where I was stationed.  He was my number one fan along with my husband Ricky and our two children Joshua and Kaelani.

Unfortunately, Dad was affected far too soon with Alzheimers.  His final years were spent living at the Blenheim Community Village and his adventures became limited to weekends that I was able to bring him to our home in Michigan.  I will miss him greatly, but I smile to think that he is free now and off on a new adventure.

Happy trails, Dad.

A graveside service for Llyod will be held at Evergreen Cemetery on Saturday June 18, 2022 @ 1:30pm with a reception to follow at the funeral home.

So sorry to hear that Lloyd has passed. Lloyd and I worked together in setup for Solvay/Inergy for many years. I appreciated that he never sugarcoated anything and always spoke his mind. Many a time we clashed, but I always respected him. RIP Lloyd.

Our condolences to Lloyds family. He was a very nice fellow. RIP Lloyd.

Brandy, I was very saddened to hear of the news of your Dad's passing. I first met your Dad when we were young boys through my cousin, David Devine. Your Dad was also one to create adventures for us around the farm. It just seemed natural that he would continue that trend into adulthood. Thank you for your wonderful tribute. I hope you treasure the memories that you and your family created together.

I am sorry to hear of Lloyds passing and his struggle with that terrible disease My name is Doug Stirling and i also went to New Scotland public school at the same time as Lloyd as well as Rick and Penny. at that time he was one of the best baseball pitchers we had and as well any other foot races and ball games. Douglas Stirling ( ps ask Penny about her ride on the swing set one afternoon)

My sympathies to Lloyd’s entire family. I have many fond memories of Lloyd and his siblings while growing up in the New Scotland community. More recently Lloyd and I had many, rather long conversations on the streets of Blenheim on a variety of topics. I had the pleasure of calling Lloyd my friend.

To the Coleman family, No words we could say will ease the pain of your loss right now. But know you are in our thoughts and prayers. I worked with Lloyd at Inergy for many years Don .

Brandy, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. Lloyd was a great neighbor to have, we have missed him and thought of him during the different seasons of the year. We enjoyed our many talks with him and knew of a few of his travel stories that he told us about, but we didn't realize what an adventurer he was. May your good memories offer you some comfort at this time. Janet and Tim Aitken

So many wonderful memories growing up with my cousin Lloyd and his family, and all my cousins, when we would travel to the "Centennial House" in Blenheim. Most of my childhood was spent at Uncle Leroy's property, Rondeau Park and fishing at the "O". He was so very proud of you and your family Brandy. You were the ultimate joy in his life. You were always there for him, no matter where the Air Force took you and your family. He is at peace now, and never suffering again. Love and will always miss you Lloyd.

My deepest condolences to the family for sure he was a wonderful fellow to work with for sure.

Sorry for your lost. Your dad was a great man, I used to work with him at Inergy.

My condolences to the entire family of Lloyd, I worked with him at Standard Tube in Blenheim in the 1980 era.

What a beautiful description of your dad & his life. We are sad to hear of his passing but glad he has eternal freedom. I attended the same one room schoolhouse & then high school as Lloyd. I ran into him in later years at the grocery store & he always talked so proudly about you! And his trips to see you & your family. Lloyd was a good person who we'll remember always.

What a beautiful description of your dad & his life. We are sad

Lloyd will be greatly missed by the Devine family especially my dad Dave. My dad and Lloyd have had a very long friendship only born 8 days apart. Lloyd and my dad had many adventures together including horse back riding, hunting and working on some crazy new inventions. I have known Lloyd all my life and remember the wonderful canoe trips and day trips to Rondeau with Brandy and my brother. Brandy your dad was always very proud of you and talked about you often. My condolences to you and your family. Life was far too cruel to him in the end and hope he has found some peace.
