The passing of Lloyd Coffin of Fredericton, NB, occurred peacefully on January 12th, 2022 with his wife by his side.

Graduate of Mount Allison University, Lloyd had a fulfilling career with CN Rail which moved the family from Moncton, NB to Beaconsfield, QC. They resided there for 27 years and many lasting friendships were made. His love of trains included model railroading and riding the rails across Canada, and often from Montreal to the Maritimes.

As lifelong member of the United Church, he served on Presbytery and chaired various committees including the Board. He sang bass in various choirs, including church choirs directed by his wife. He was a longtime member of the Boy Scouts movement holding several positions including that of District Commissioner.
