It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Lloyd MacDonald age 82, at his home in Ironville, Saturday April 27, 2013, surrounded by his loving family.
Lloyd was born in 1931, on the Gannon Road, North Sydney, to parents James R. MacDonald, Beechmont and Belle Gouthro, Frenchvale. Only several months later James R. died in an accident in the Florence Coal Mine. Soon Lloyd’s mother Belle showed early signs of multiple sclerosis and subsequently Lloyd was raised by his aunt Elizabeth (MacDonald) and her husband John (Jack) MacDonald, at Ironville – and later they lived next door to Lloyd’s brother Hector, his sister Sylvia and their mother Belle in North Sydney.
Lloyd’s father James R. had played the violin, along with his brothers Murdoch and Hector. Lloyd’s stepmother Aunt Lizzie and stepfather Jack were both Gaelic singers. Lloyd studied with “Professor Jimmy” MacDonald, North Sydney, had a weekly CJCB radio show with Mildred Leadbeater, and performed at theatre musical productions in Antigonish where he attended St. FX. A businessman from a young age Lloyd sold Chevrolets at R.J. Logue’s in North Sydney. In 1957 Lloyd cofounded Scotsman Motors, a Sydney Studebaker dealership. In 1959 he founded Lloyd MacDonald Sales, Sydney River. Lloyd also serviced a market throughout western Newfoundland. In 1967 Lloyd established a Datsun franchise, known as Datsunland. Joined by four of his sons in the 1980s Lloyd MacDonald Sales expanded and through his television commercials Lloyd became known as “Tokyo Lloyd”. In 1992, Lloyd acquired Breton Toyota. In recent years Lloyd’s business has expanded and is known today as MacDonald Auto Group.
Lloyd married Winifred Jeanette MacDonald, of Sydney in 1956 and they had a family of twelve, a family who would later reflect both his passions for business and music. Winnie and Lloyd founded the family band Scumalash in the early 1980s, releasing an album in 1992, and in 2011, Lloyd released his album entitled “Aires in Bloom”. Gardening and hockey were Lloyd’s other passions. To the end of his life Lloyd maintained strong personal faith and had deep respect for the vocations of his brother, the late Father Hector MacDonald, and his sister, the late Sister Sylvia MacDonald, Sisters of St. Martha, Antigonish. Lloyd remained musically faithful to his Boisdale parish, and always to his wife Winnie who is the choir director for the Boisdale Parish, where Lloyd always loved to be accompanied by his very close friend Janet Cameron. Lloyd was also a generous contributor to his community and donated much of his time to helping his favorite charities.
Lloyd was the last surviving member of his immediate family. Lloyd is survived by his wife Winnie, ten sons and two daughters- James (Joan), Chris (Judy), Paul, Michael (Taunia), Ronald (Julia), Mark (Erin), Patrick, Annie (Brian), Alexandra (Darren), Shawn (Charlotte), Daniel (Jennifer), Martin (Kristen). He is also survived by sixteen grandchildren whom he loved very much- Ryan, Kristin, Nicholas, Jennifer (Darci), Michael, Michelle, Victoria, Madison, Ashley, Allissa, Dylan, Connor, Alex, Sam, Moira, and Jerome. Lloyd is pre-deceased by his mother Belle and father James, brother Father Hector and sister Sylvia MacDonald. Throughout his short illness Lloyd retold us many of his stories and he sincerely wanted to let everyone know that he “was just a boy from the road… the Gannon Road”. In the end Lloyd met every single day with his usual sense of absolute charming hope – and consistent humor. “The warranty is up boys…”

You sailed away on your wings of hope,
and comforted us
with the strings of your harp
and the songs in your heart
You showed us the way, and in turn, gave us all hope –
for you had it in excess.
