It is with heavy hearts that the family of Mr. Lloyd John Bartman, beloved husband of Mrs. Anne Bartman (nee Debler) announce his passing at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital on Tuesday, June 19, 2012 at the age of 78.
Lloyd was a dedicated volunteer hockey and baseball coach for 20 years, a committed member of Victory Lutheran Church and a supportive and active member of the Moose Lodge. Lloyd loved golfing, working at his son’s construction company, watching hockey, sharing coffee with his friends, as well as watching his children and grandchildren grow, develop and take part in activities.
Most recently, he was able to share a special trip with his four sons back to his birthplace and family farm in Wallace Township. Lloyd captured the experience with the word “unbelievable”.
The family is both deeply saddened and eternally grateful to have had the blessing of having Dad in their lives and to have had him as a husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.
He was the best role model, mentor and a shining example of how each of us might lead a purposeful life that centred on humility and treating everyone with dignity.
Lloyd left an honourable legacy for his family and will be dearly missed by his loving wife Anne; and sons Terry (Erika), Darryl (Cheryl), Jamie (Birgit) and Troy (Krista). Also by his grandchildren Rachel (Lorne) Vossler, Brett Bartman and Dara Hanna; Jonathan, Lyndon and Courtney Bartman; Michael and Joshua Bartman; and Truman and Amally Bartman.
He will be missed by his siblings Carl (Marilyn) Bartman, Irene Moore, Grant Bartman, Joan (Eric) Bartman and Jean Bartman; sister-in-law Marion Bartman and brother-in-law John Moore.
He was predeceased by his parents Oscar and Emma Bartman, his brother Bruce and his sister-in-law Ivadelle Bartman.
Relatives and friends were invited to a celebration of Lloyd’s life at the Kinplex in Medicine Hat on Sunday, June 24 and private family interment took place at Hillside Cemetery prior to the life celebration.
Memorial tributes in Lloyd’s name may be made directly to the Margery E. Yuill Cancer Centre, 666-5 Street S.W., Medicine Hat, Alberta T1A 4H6.
