Dates of existence
Lloyd Millar was born in Saint-Hyacinthe, Que., the son of the late Bruce and Rosalyn (Taylor) Millar. Lloyd lived in Montreal West, Sherbrooke, and graduated from Bishop's University in 1943 with a B.Sc. degree. He was brother to Charles Millar '40 and Oliver Millar '39. In his chosen career as a Meteorologist he was posted in Quebec, Nova Scotia, and five times in P.E.I. where he developed a real love for Summerside, and he served a four-year posting in Baden-Soelligen, Germany. In 1962 on his return from Germany, Lloyd became very involved in his community. He was involved in the building of most of the Habitat for Humanity homes in Summerside, was an active member of Trinity United Church serving multiple terms as an elder, was an active member in the YMCA for over 30 years, a member of both the golf and curling clubs of Summerside, co-convened the United Way campaign and was a long-time volunteer for Meals on Wheels. In 1991 he and his wife Hazel won the YMCA Peace Prize in recognition of their community work. Lloyd met and married Hazel MacQueen in Halifax in 1952. They moved to Summerside in 1956 where they had two children, Elizabeth and Malcolm. Lloyd had many interests but his wife and family were always first in his life. Lloyd was interested in many sports and excelled in most. He loved skiing and was one of the original four who planned and built the Brookvale Ski Park in central P.E.I., where he later taught skiing and coached the P.E.I. Canada Games alpine ski team on several occasions. He loved the water and they built a cottage on the Dunk River where he helped form the West Isle Water Ski Club and it was there that many children did their first water skiing. He enjoyed golf, curling, tennis and badminton when time permitted. Lloyd's father, Bruce MacDougall Millar, instilled a love of wood and carpentry in his son at their cottage in Magog, Que. In 1973 he built his own home for his family during his last posting to Summerside. Lloyd Millar died at the Prince County Hospital, Summerside, PEI, in 2009, aged 85 years.
