Joseph Lloyd Rogers, born in Charlottetown, P.E.I. on February 8, 1931, and passed away in Windsor, N.S. on January 23, 2024, has left behind a legacy that will forever be cherished by those who knew and loved him.
Lloyd was predeceased by his beloved wife, Phyllis Rogers, in 1996, as well as his parents and 8 of his 11 siblings. He is survived by his sisters, Shirley MacEachern and Doris Turner, as well as his children, Rhonda Smith (Bob), Jeannie Gay (Steve), Rayona Caissie (Medric), and Jim Rogers (Christina). Lloyd is also survived by his grandchildren, Kelly Carlson (Jeff), Keith Carpenter (Jennifer), Courtney Isles (Chris), Jason Bell (Katie), Joshua Rogers (Lisa), Matthew Cassie, Ryan Cassie (Stacy), Alyssa Grady (Luke), and Jacob Rogers. He is also survived by his great-grandchildren, Caleb, Cian, Desiree, Jaxon, Chloe, Jayce, Lyla, and Jack.
Lloyd's life was marked by remarkable service and dedication. He enlisted in the Canadian Army in August 1950 and bravely served in the Korean War in 1952 under the Provost Corps, enduring 13 months in Korea. Upon returning home in 1953, Lloyd transferred to the Royal Canadian Air Force and eventually joined the Military Police Division in 1954, where he devoted the next 25 years of his life. After completing his years of military service, Lloyd went on to a career as a civil servant at the Halifax Dock Yard, where he spent the next 17 years until his retirement around 1995.
Beyond his professional accomplishments, Lloyd was a man of many talents and passions. An accomplished upholsterer in his spare time, he was surrounded by music his whole life and could play his guitar for hours. However, if you were to ask his family what his greatest accomplishment was, they would say it was the love he had for all of them. A devoted husband, loving father, and grandfather, Lloyd's love and care knew no bounds. He was a master of the game of cribbage, never without a joke and a smile for all who knew and loved him.
In the later years of his life, Lloyd relocated to Windsor, N.S. to be closer to his family. He was immensely helped by his loving daughters, Jeannie and Rhonda, his only son, Jim. Lloyd was always taken care of with love and compassion thanks mostly to Debbie McIlveen and Angie Ettinger, both of whom he absolutely adored and loved like daughters. Lloyd touched countless lives in his 92 years, and it is with heavy hearts that we bid farewell to him. He has finally rejoined his loving wife, Phyllis, in God's embrace, and it is in knowing this that we all find peace for them both.
A celebration of Lloyd's remarkable life will be held at the Catholic Church of St. John the Evangelist at 339 King St in Windsor on February 10th at 10 am. A small reception will be held at the church after the service.
Lloyd's memory will forever live on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to have known him. His love, laughter, and unwavering devotion to his family will be cherished for generations to come. May he rest in peace, knowing that he was deeply loved and will be dearly missed.
