Lloyd passed peacefully in his 99th year at Cobourg. Lloyd was formerly of New Brunswick, Guelph and of Wiarton for 44 years.
Wilfred “Lloyd” was born in Dalhousie, NB of Irenee and Diana Poirier (nee Ward). Pre deceased by brothers Joe, Valmond, Edward, sisters Angelina, Geraldine, Alida, Elizabeth, Margaret. Survived by sister Juliette of Montreal.
Predeceased by his wife Agnes Brown Leard Poirier of Guelph.
Lloyd was proud of, and unconditionally loving to each member of his blended family of four girls and each of the ever growing members of their families.
He is lovingly remembered and missed by his daughters Marlene Poirier Caswell (Robert), Bonnie Poirier Smith (John). His grandchildren Stephen (Julie), Sandra (Max), Brian, Jacob (Anna), Greg (Sarah) and great grandchildren Maizie, Brynn, Abigail, Keenan, Caswell, Beccah, Logan, Ryerson, Camryn, Henrik and Harper.
Lloyd is equally loved and missed by Agnes’s two little girls, Jean Leard Zamin (Reno), Shiela Leard Scott (Joe), who he embraced and loved as his own. He was a loving grandpa to each of their children, Paula, Jeff, Laura, Christina, Rob, Lisa, Bill, James and grandchildren Lindsay, Owen, Cassie, Rebecca, Tyler, Nathan, Jordan, Darius, Karma, Odin, Caleb, Gabrielle, Lena, Nyla, Brock., Oscar, Juniper, Brennan, Olivia, Jacob and Abigail.
Lloyd is a WWII Veteran, who served in Europe during and post war 1943 to 1947.
Lloyd will always be remembered for his constant teasing which made him popular with children and others who loved to laugh and could relate to his sense of humour. He had a bark that was used to cover the absence of a bite. Humour is the universal salve for the abrasive elements of life. He was an optimist, always looking on the bright side. He was quick to forgive, and as he aged, we noticed he had forgotten how to be angry and always recognized when kindness was needed by those around him.
He loved his family and everyone was his friend. Likewise, we all loved him in return and will miss him enormously.
Thank you to the kind neighbours of Wiarton , for many years of friendship, as well as the caring staff of Palisade Gardens and Extendicare during his more recent years in Cobourg.
In accordance with Lloyd’s wishes, cremation has taken place.
A celebration of his life to be held at a future date.
It has been many years since we've seen each other, but we always remember that Poirier twinkle, the jokes and laughter. My deepest sympathies on the passing of Uncle Lloyd.
I remember meeting Uncle Lloyd as young girl. It saddens me that I do not his family. My mother, Elizabeth, spoke of him often. Sending condolences to his family.
Many memories of this popular fella from his days at Palisade Garden’s Retirement Community… “ya squarehead”. Condolences to his family🏼
Dear Marlene & Family, We are sending our deepest condolences on the passing of your father. May your treasured memories be a source of great comfort at this difficult time. Rest in Peace, Lloyd. Sincerely, The Inch/Clifford Family🙏🕊️❤️
My condolences to the Poirier family. Lloyd was always such a cut up. I remember that he would come for meals as Palisade Gardens and always sit at the same table in the same chair or the countless times he quipped that he would have [all staff, not just me :D ] Me/Us , fired. Usually , after something like losing a utensil off a plate on to the floor. Sometimes you would see him break character from his dead panning to let out a smile and a small chuckle. You will be missed. Lloyd, i have no idea where I'm going or what I'm doing. Maybe you'll check in from time to time to let me know that you do. Aaron
Dear Marlene and Sandra thinking of you all at this difficult time your in my thoughts and prayers. I will miss from seeing Lloyd well working at Extendicare .

So sorry to hear of Lloyd’s passing, it was such a pleasure to have cared for him at Palisades, and have the “Mayor” of Palisades greet you at the door with a funny comment to you to start the day! So sorry for your loss ❤️
Dear Marlene and family, You will miss you Dad, Grandfather and GG but the love he shared with all of you is his legacy. He is now with his Lord Jesus Christ as promised. 2 Cor 5:8
