Lloyd Wesley Hart

Passed away on December 15, 2010 in Stettler at the age of 93.  Lloyd was born on March 4, 1917 to Charles and Alma Hart on a homestead two miles northeast of Botha, Alberta.  Lloyd attended all his school years at the Botha Consolidated School and, after the usual trials of growing up on an early homestead in the 1930’s, he worked at various carpentry and construction jobs.  In 1941 he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and served four years as a Wireless Air Gunner, including six months overseas.  During this time he met and married the love of his life, Betty Harbison.  After being discharged in 1945, Lloyd worked at carpentry and then bought a commercial truck business.  In 1949 he and Betty began farming on his father’s original homestead, living in the house which was built in 1918.  There they raised their family of one daughter and four sons.  After 31 years of running a successful mixed farming operation, Lloyd and Betty moved into a new house in Botha in 1978 to enjoy their retirement.  Over the years Lloyd has enjoyed curling, hunting, travel, golfing, coin collecting, painting, dancing and poetry with his family and friends.  He was an ardent supporter of both the Edmonton Eskimos and Oilers, rooting them on to many championships.
Lloyd was predeceased by his siblings Walt, Harold, Mabel, Ethel and Anna, an infant son David, and by his son-in law, Dennis Hinkle.  He is survived by his loving wife Betty; daughter Vivian Hinkle and grandchildren Cheryl (Mike) Talma, Karen (Steve) Copeland and Laura Hinkle; son Allan (Jessie Inman) Hart and grandchildren Claire (Brent) Carr and Allan Hart Jr; son Jim Hart; son Ken (Sandra) Hart and grandchildren Julia (Dan Hikita) Hart and Angela (Garett) Martin; son Ted (Jana) Hart and grandchildren Chelsea, Eric, Sam, and Elyse Hart; along with 6 great grand children; all whom were loved very much.  He will be missed by all.
As an expression of sympathy donations may be made to Botha Woodland Cemetery, Botha United Church, or Stettler Health Services foundation – Pine Ridge.

Betty & family, I want to share my condolences and hugs to all your families. I enjoyed Lloyd and of course Betty when I came to their home to do footcare. We all know that Lloyd didn't enjoy that very much, but he was also very tolerant and always asked why are you doing this, followed by are you done yet? Thank you Betty for the cups of tea and cookies you always had ready when I was finished. God Bless Lloyd as he starts his new journey and to all the family as they work their way towards a new day. I can't be with you on Wednesday but will be thinking of you all. Thank you for being part of my life. Pat Lattery

To the Hart family

We were so very sorry to hear of Lloyds passing and you all have been in our thoughts and prayers. I have many fond memories of the time I spent wih you all as I was growing up. Ken told me once when I was about 5 that his Dad spanked little girls who wore bathing suits, this was after we had been playing in the sprinkler in our suits, I hid behind a bush in the yard when Lloyd came home for lunch, needless to say I never received that spanking.
I'm sorry we can't be there today but we thinking of you all.
Cherish all of your memories.

Gloria and Alex
