Robert Glenn Lloyd

LLOYD, Robert Glenn - On Saturday, February 10, 2018 an earthly file was suddenly and unexpectedly deleted, only to be re-created in the halls of heaven. Robert Glenn Lloyd, 74 years, known to the world as “Glenn” was a loving, passionate, articulate and caring soul. He loved to cook, which was important because he never met a meal he didn’t like, unless of course it included coconut. His fearless ability to experiment in the kitchen was a skill that spilled over in all areas of his life. Most recently put to good use in the sharing of his computer skills through training in his personal business, Sudbury Training, the Sunday Bulletin at the Church of The Ascension and in the work required to be awarded consecutive MVP (Most Valuable Professional) award from Microsoft for technology contributions. He loved all things “gadgetry” kitchen, office, household electronics and owned most of them. If it came with batteries, a remote or required a password, it peaked his interest. The love of passwords has now become an earthly issue for those left behind to deal with! His loving partner for the last 21 years, Brian Peters and his best friend Roberta will miss him and continue to struggle electronically without him. He also leaves behind his brothers George (Christel), Gordon (Anne) and Art (Jean), along with numerous nieces and nephews. His dislike of large gatherings and fuss are now being carried out in his funeral wishes “no fanfare please”. Cremation has taken place and a private service will be held in the spring. In lieu of flowers you are being asked to make donations directly to Rainbow Camp (rainbowcamp.ca) because it would please him to send an LGBTQ youth to summer camp or to the Church of The Ascension c/o the Rev. Anne Germond Fund (ascension@vianet.ca), where both his computer skills and his dry wit were found in the Sunday Bulletin for the last 17 years. Arrangements entrusted to RANGER’S CREMATION AND BURIAL SERVICES LTD. Online condolences can be posted at www.RangersSudbury.com13253293

Glenn was one of the founding members of the UtterAccess forum, and long one of our most important moderators. We just recently learned of his passing.

I only knew him from working together, but every interaction was marked by grace, good humor, compassion and wisdom. He's left a big hole and will be missed by many.

Rest n peace

I never actually laid eye on Glenn, but worked with him last winter when I was a student intern at the Ascension. We corresponded regularly about the Sunday bulletin and I appreciated his commitment and wit. Prayers for Brian, Roberta, and the rest of Glenn's family as you make your way (especially through the electronics) without him. May flights of angels sing him to his rest.
