Lloyd Ronald Sproul
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected death of Lloyd Ronald Sproul after suffering a heart attack at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital on Wednesday, November 8, 2017, surrounded by his family. Lloyd Ronald (Ron) was born February 9, 1963 in Fort Fairfield, Maine. He was the son of Lloyd and Nirah (Larsen) Sproul.
Ron spent his earlier years in Maine and New Haven, Conn, returning to New Brunswick with his parents in 1971. Ron attended Fredericton High School, Minto High School and University of New Brunswick. Because of his outgoing nature, Ron truly enjoyed his service as a Paige at the Legislature.
Ron was instrumental in the start up of Billy’s Sea Food Restaurant in Saint John and continued in the food service industry for some time.
Ron was a music enthusiast but spending his summers at Princess Park was the highlight of his life as well as capturing the many beautiful sunrises and sunsets. He researched the history of the family homestead in Princess Park which dated back to the 1860’s with very prominent forefathers.
Ron is survived by his parents ; one sister, Kelly Ann Dewsbury (John) , Great Aunt Nita Johnson, Aunt Carol Ashton (Brian), Uncle Marty Larsen, Aunt Lois Park, Uncle James Sproul (Doris) ; two nieces and very special cousins , many of whom were able to be with him during his final hours, as well as very special friends here and in Toronto.
Ron was predeceased by his grandparents, Wesley and Hilda Sproul, John and Mary Larsen and his uncles Jake Larsen and George Park.
A Memorial Service and reception will be held on Monday, November 13th at 2 pm, Oromocto Funeral Home, 108 Winnebago Street. Rev. Ellen Bearisto will officiate. A private burial will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations to either Oromocto or Fredericton SPCA or organization of your choice, would be most welcome.
