August 6, 1934 – August 29, 2015
Mr. Lloyd Henry Amundson of Naicam, SK, passed away on Saturday, August 29, 2015, at Humboldt District Hospital, Humboldt, SK. He was 81 years of age. Lloyd, the ninth child of Helge and Anna (nee Hagen) Amundson, was born on August 6, 1934, in the Naicam Nursing Home. He grew up in the Naicam district and attended Home School. After completing Grade 8, Lloyd was employed as a farm labourer for Len Smith. He also worked for his brother-in-law, Ben Davis, on his farm for two years. Lloyd then moved to Port Alberni, BC, where he was employed in the logging industry. Eventually, he returned to Saskatchewan and worked on road construction, as well as in Rausch’s Garage in mechanics. Following the tragic drowning death of his brother John, Lloyd moved home to help with the family’s farming operation. In March 1958, Lloyd met Muriel Gay and, on July 2, 1960, they were married. Their union was blessed with two children, Ron and Noreen. Lloyd purchased his first half-section of land in 1960, and farmed with his brother Melvin until he retired in 1990. During his farming years, Lloyd worked for Cropper Motors during the winter. Following retirement, he helped out at the Naicam Golf Course volunteering to cut grass and keep the grounds neat. Both outdoor enthusiasts, Lloyd and Muriel enjoyed skiing and square dancing in the winter months and playing golf in the summer. Lloyd will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his wife of 55 years, Muriel (nee Gay) Amundson; their two children, five grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren: Ron (Denise) Amundson and family, Quinton, Kaylie and Kenzie; and Noreen (Vern) Meckelborg and family, Samantha (Colin) Hartle and children Blake and Emersyn, and Chelsea Meckelborg; three brothers and two sisters: Ruben Amundson, Gunder (Merne) Amundson, Melvin (Joyce) Amundson, Jennet Elliott, and Marion (Donald) Schulz; brothers-in-law: John (Joyce) Gay, Elwyn Gay (Donna Johnson); sister-in-law, Sylvia Gay; and by numerous nieces and nephews.
