HARDING, CPO 1st Class, Lloyd George “The Duke” ( CD RET’d R.C.N.)
At age 100, formerly of Dartmouth NS, born in Trail BC, crossed the bar August 9 2017 in Ottawa.
Lloyd joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1938 and spent a lot of his time during the second war at sea. Then came the Korean conflict and once again he found himself shipping out. He retired from the R.C.N. in the late nineteen fifties. He was awarded the CD as well as many more medals for his service to country.
He went on to join the D.O.T Marine Division in Dartmouth NS as a stores tech in charge of supplying Coast Guard ships. Some years after that he took a transfer to Prescott ON and from there retired to Ottawa ON. He stayed on the sidelines for about 10 minute, as he soon took a position with the Corps of Commissionaires. After a time with them he finally retired for good.
He was predeceased by wife Goldie; parents William and Mary Harding. He is survived by son William of NS, granddaughters Krista of NB and Tracy ON as well as great-grandchildren Sydney, Taylor and Reagan all of NB: Nieces Nancy (Howie Hennessy) McKnight, Gillian (Russell) Blackburn all of NS, Tedda (Bob) Grimshaw ON, Pamela (Patrick) Coe, Caitlin Coe all of ON, Nephews Alan (Sandra) Johnson, Noah Johnson, Duncan Coe all of ON, Douglas (Dolena) MacDonald of NS, as well as sister-in- law Iris (George) Johnson ON.
Cremation has taken place and a private interment will be at a later date. There will be no public service or memorial at Lloyd’s request. However donations may be made to any military benevolent fund of your choosing in memory of Lloyd for his long service to Canada.
