Lloyd Wensley Hartnell passed away peacefully at Rainycrest Long Term Care Home on May 23, 2020, at age 93.

Lloyd was born May 11, 1927 in Blue Twp, Ontario to parents Bill and Esther (nee Wensley) Hartnell.

Lloyd worked as a truck driver for several years. Lloyd married Mona (nee Nielson) Shrumm in 1951. Mona was a widow, with two young children, whom Lloyd adopted. They also had two daughters to complete their family.

They lived on a farm north of Stratton, and shipped milk to Kenora and raised beef cattle. Lloyd also worked as a pulp cutter and did some guiding on Lake of the Woods.

In 1967, they had a home built in Nestor Falls on Bass Lake, and moved there in 1968. Lloyd continued guiding and started working for the Dept. of Highways. He became full time road man in 1975. He retired in 1992. He volunteered for the Nestor Falls Volunteer Fire Dept. and served on the Norman Cottam Memorial Garden Cemetery Board, and volunteered cutting the grass at the cemetery. Lloyd was a very quiet, private, hardworking honest man. He enjoyed fishing, hunting and reading.

They moved to Fort Frances in 2005, and into Rainycrest in August 2019, as his physical health failed.

He was predeceased by his parents Bill and Ester, brother Gerald and nephew Billy Hartnell, in-law’s Fred and Alice Nielson, brother’s-in-law Clark Nielson, Doug Nielson, Joseph Bjornstad and Melborne Shrumm, sister’s-in-law Evelyn Nielson, Margaret Bjornstad and Lavaun Shrumm.

He is survived by his wife Mona and children Joanne (Greg) Cosgrove, Walter (Ardelle) Hartnell, Cheryle (Dayle) Percival and Karen (Wayne) Peri; Grandchildren Fred (Jude) Hartnell, Mike Peri, Chris Peri, Carissa Cosgrove, Derek (Megan) Cosgrove, Gavin (Whitney) Cosgrove and Kevin Percival: great grandchildren Ericka and Shane Hartnell, Logan and Mia Peri, Warren, Jackson, Elliot, Davis, Thomas and Pearson Cosgrove.

He is also survived by his sister Gladys (Gerald) Anderson, brothers Raymond (Ruth) Hartnell Bert (Betty) Hartnell and sister-in-law Loretta Hartnell, and several nieces and nephews.

Cremation has taken place and as per Lloyds wishes there will be no funeral service. A private family interment will be held at a later date in the Norman Cottam Cemetery.
