Public Submission

The death of Richard "Lloyd" Anderson of Nokomis (Last Mountain Regional Park) occurred at Regina General Hospital, Regina, Saskatchewan on Monday, February 19, 2024. Richard was born on July 17, 1950, at Watrous, SK, the second son of Ole and Gladys Anderson and grew up in Venn, SK. He attended primary school at Venn and attended high school at Watrous, SK.

After leaving home, he worked at a variety of jobs, including road construction, railroad maintenance and telephone line construction, before settling into a truck driving career, first as a contractor at Central Canada Potash (Mosaic Potash) and then moving to long-distance trucking. From an early age he enjoyed hunting and fishing and spent his free time pursuing that passion. He loved to share his hunting stories with anyone who would listen and enjoyed teaching his skills to people of all ages, especially the young. As a natural progression to his passion, he started a guiding business (Last Mountain Outfitters) and enjoyed the many friendships he garnered over the years. To be closer to his favourite fishing and hunting areas, he made Last Mountain Regional Park his home for the last 35 years until health issues forced him to move to Regina. Lloyd truly believed he was fortunate to have lived in the best of times, in the best of places and to have enjoyed the company of the best of friends.

He is survived by brother Neil (Diane) Anderson, sisters Carla (Calvin) Stratton, Gail Anderson, Deborah (Eugene) Parks and Christine (Joe) Anderson and sister-in-law Cheryl Anderson, as well as many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be held on a later date at Last Mountain Regional Park. A private family interment will be held at Venn Cemetery.
