Lloyd Victor Rains passed away peacefully on Good Friday, March 29th, 2013, at 12:20 pm, at the age of 88, residing in London, Ontario, Canada with wife Olga.
Lloyd was born in Desbarats, Ontario on March 20, 1925 and grew up on St. Joseph Island, Ontario.
He enrolled in the Canadian army at 17 and was a member of the PPCLI, the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry, and served in the campaigns from Sicily through to the Liberation of Holland, where he met his wife to be at the end of the war, married in Haarlem, Holland on December 24, 1945. They later moved to Canada and raised a family in Hamilton, Ontario.
Lloyd ran a business called The Dutch Cleaners, and later repaired appliances and managed motels though the crowning work of his life with Olga was in a 30 year mission called Project Roots which reunited 4000 children of war with their Canadian fathers and families. A work which was recognized by leading media in Holland and Canada, including the CBC National News, The Fifth Estate, NCRV and many others.
Lloyd loved oil painting, cribbage and nature, and charmed his grandchildren with his good nature and creative style, staying close with them even into their adult years. He and Olga built a marriage that spanned 67 years.
Lloyd is survived by wife Olga, and three sons, Ralph, Ross and Roger and grandchildren Jennifer, Trevor, Scotia, Clea, Nila, Yorr, Bonnie, Michael, Julie and Sherrie and 14 great-grandchildren.
A private family memorial service will be held on Sunday, April 7th at the farm of Ben and Bonnie Loveday of London, where loving 'Husband/Dad/Grandpa/Opa' will be remembered.
Lloyd's final wishes were for his ashes to be spread at a later date in Holten Cemetery, Holland, by special permission of the Military Cemeteries Commission. This is the location of the remains of comrades who fell all around Lloyd, in 1945. His final wish was to be reunited with his brothers in arms.
Lloyd's hope of heaven rested in a personal faith in Jesus introduced by his mother Jesse, fuelled in the foxholes of the 2nd World War and confirmed in his fifties. At his request there will be no public visitation, and in lieu of flowers, any memorial remembrances can be made in the form of a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society.
