BURTON: James William “Lloyd” passed away peacefully with family by his side on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre. Lloyd was born in Brandon on October 19, 1931 to James Harold and Euphemia. He spent his youth working on the family farm and had several jobs before he settled into the gravel business, where he spent more than 50 years operating Burton Construction. Lloyd was referred to by some as the “Godfather of Gravel”. He also spent many years associated with Central Community Centre and coached many youngsters in local hockey. Lloyd was able to strike up a conversation with anyone and often had a connection with someone they knew. He was predeceased by his parents, his beloved wife Violet, his youngest daughter Mavis, and his brother Beverly. Lloyd will be lovingly remembered by his children Barbara, Glen (Kathy) and Diane; six grandchildren Abbey (Brock), Sarah (Jason), Erik (Jillian), Jessica, Emma (Tanner) and Jordan; three great grandchildren Truman, Benjamin and Adeline; and his sister Laurine Grandison. Lloyd lived his life with humor and grace and will be greatly missed. A Celebration of Lloyd’s Life will be held at a later date. Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations in memory of Lloyd may be made to a charity of one’s choice.

Diane, Barb, & Glen - We were so saddened to learn about your Dad's passing. Mr. B. was a kind, caring gentleman who had a great sense of humour. We will miss seeing him around the neighbourhood. We know that you have wonderful memories of both your Mom and Dad and will cherish them forever. Take care of each other.

Glen and Families: shocked and sorry to hear of your father’s passing. I always enjoyed seeing he and the other members at the “table of knowledge” at the Richmond Restaurant as he and the others always stopped for a chat.

Barb, Glen and Diane, I was saddened to learn of your dad’s passing. Then I remembered “Uncle Lloyds” gentle ways, his teasing and his and his honor. He was a fine man. I hope your memories warm your hearts as my memories of him warm mine.

Sorry to hear of the loss of your father. My late husband worked for Lloyd years ago. I used to see him at the Army and navy when I was playing crib and he was there with the pool sharks. He always had to stop and visit for a moment. May he rest in peace.
