Lloyd Weston (1937-2021) took his final ride Monday July 7th from Royal Oak Long Term Care in Kingsville, ON, formerly of Meldrum Bay, Manitoulin Island, ON. Lloyd was the long-time proprietor of Meldrum Bay Outfitters, and in his retirement, Lloyd's Recycle. He served western Lake Huron and the North Channel as Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary for over 25 years and was a proud Harley rider, Master Trapper, outdoorsman and conservationist. In his younger years Lloyd professionally raced motorcycles around the world and owned and operated Lloyd's Cycle Shop in southern Ontario before moving north. A mechanic and stationary engineer by trade he could fix pretty much anything and had an uncanny ability to identify a motorcycle engine and whether it was firing on all cylinders long before anyone else even heard it coming. Always willing to lend a hand, open his door or help a traveler (human or animal) in need, Lloyd counted many friends around the world despite living in a place "where the highway ends". Loving father of Joe Weston and Roberta (Heather) Weston and proud grandpa to Kelsy (Ty) Marois. Predeceased by his sister Donna and brother-in-law Richard Eichler, survived by his brother Lorne (Janice) Weston and many nieces and nephews. His stories, antics and spirit will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Special thanks to his close friends for their care and support while he was at home and to the staff at Southgate Retirement Village and Royal Oak LTC for their outstanding care and compassion this past year despite the pandemic. In keeping with Lloyd's wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be "no fanfare" as he called it. If you wish, memorial donations would be appreciated to the Nature Conservancy of Canada – please specify Vidal Bay Project in the comments section. (The 7600 hectare Vidal Bay Forests and Shoreline project is redefining conservation in southern Ontario by creating the largest protected area complex south of the Canadian Shield and something Lloyd was pleased to learn came to fruition this past year. He had long advocated for its protection.) Arrangements entrusted to Gerald A. Smith Funeral Home 197 King St. W. Harrow 519-738-6662. You may send your online condolences to www.geraldasmith.ca
