Obituary for Lloyd Eli Schofield

August 27th, 1978 - January 29th, 2023

It is with profound sorrow that the family announces his sudden passing on Sunday, January 29th, 2023 at the age of 44 years. Loving son of Harvey Schofield and Pauline Berton-Gabos (Lesley), and beloved brother to Jennifer (Robert) and Alison. Predeceased by his cherished grandparents Ralph and Violet Schofield, and Eugene and Jeanne Berton.

Lloyd will be remembered for his quick wit, and wry sense of humour. He loved nothing more than to make people laugh. He always said he wasn’t a people person, but he could talk your ear off for hours at a time (just ask his mom). He loved all animals but had a special place in his heart for his cats.

He was a consummate musician; you could often find him enthralled in practicing with one of his many guitars. He was particularly obsessed with mastering his favourite piece of classical music - Dr. Viossy’s metal guitar version of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata {3rd Movement}; he played it so very beautifully. He had a love of so many different genres of music, many of which he shared with his dad and sister Alison, although heavy metal was what could you find him listening to most often.

He was rarely seen without a book nearby in case the opportunity for another chapter presented itself. He had a never-ending thirst for knowledge and was especially fond of books about historical times and events. A fiction fan as well, he was always drawn to sci-fi and fantasy books, particularly those of George RR Martin and Brandon Sanderson. A huge Star Wars fan, he enjoyed making us laugh with his hilarious rendition of Chewbacca’s growl. He was always happy when a new movie came out so he could see them with his dad and/or sisters.

While incredibly intelligent, he spent way too much time goofing off in high school and didn’t graduate. In 2015, he decided it was time to prove something to himself and obtain his secondary school diploma. He studied hard and ended up achieving the highest score in his class. It made him so proud to do that for no one but himself.

He was a real stickler for proper grammar and the proper use of signal lights when driving, much to the chagrin of his sister Jen who was often on the receiving end of his chastisement for her grammar missteps and forgotten signals. Most of all, Lloyd was passionate about his job. Nothing made him happier than spending time discussing the nuances of diamond drilling with his brother-in-law Rob, and other friends in the industry.

Family and Friends may gather to honour his life on Saturday, February 11th, 2023, at the Abundant Life Healing Centre at 360 Perreault Street in Sudbury, at 11:00am. Burial to take place at a later date. Most importantly, come as you are - if anyone hated getting dressed up it was Lloyd. Suits, jeans, workwear, all are welcome. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Pet Save Sudbury. Arrangements entrusted to Sudbury Park Lawn Cremation Services.
