Lloyd Owen Teghtmeyer
June 25,1960- March 17,2020
Lloyd Owen Teghtmeyer was born in Calgary, Alberta but would have been proud to be known for growing up in Spirit River, Alberta on a homestead with his parents Earl and Beth, and brothers Ken and Alan. He had many fond memories of homestead life and its simplicity and self-reliance. He developed a remarkable ability to fix anything and live off the land. Lloyd had many skills and jobs including working as a lumberjack, a machinist at CFB Calgary, and most recently as a field operator for Canlin Energy near Rocky Mtn House. He always loved teaching if someone was willing to learn. He will always be remembered for his meticulous work ethic and he found a lot of joy in doing something right. No “half-assing” as he would say.
Lloyd was adored by numerous family and friends. His son Bradley who passed in 2009, and his daughter Jill were his pride and joy. He shared a happy marriage to Joy for 30 years and was proud that they could maintain a friendship after their separation a few years ago. His girlfriend Twila and her daughter Sabrina brought him much happiness the last years. They had a plan to move to Vancouver Island to be closer to Jill and their recent project, a 30 foot sailboat “Audacious”. He had many interests and passions. Gardening, mountain biking, skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking, dog sled racing, trapping, and practical joking (It seems everyone has a few good stories to share).
We are broken hearted to announce Lloyd’s passing at the age of 59. He took his own life, but we want everyone to know that his final note was one of absolute love. We will miss his generous spirit, adventurous and outgoing personality, his wicked sense of humour and even his outspoken opinions.
Lloyd wouldn’t want us all moping around, so we are planning a party in his memory for later this year. Date will be determined at a later time. Please let us all remember this beautiful man for how he lived and not how he died. Less worrying, more smiling. Less judgement, more compassion. Less stress, more gratitude. Less hate, more love.

Sending heartfelt sympathy on the passing of Lloyd.
He was a lovely man.
It was heartbreaking to hear the news of Lloyd's passing.
My memories of him go way back to when he was about 14 and in junior high. He always had a smile on his face and was popular with all his teachers and classmates. He will be greatly missed by all of those who enjoyed his company over the years.
When I heard of Lloyd's passing it was hard to grasp. How could this former track and field mate be gone? I have lost touch with the Teghtmeyer boys but could get an occasional up date from a proud mom. Lloyd I will always remember your dedication to our track and field training and that spontaneous laugh of yours. Rest in Peace and no more merry go round pranks! My condolences to the whole family.

So that's where YOUR "no half-assed"-mentality comes from, Jill (not even when teaching funny Yoga poses that somehow involve your butt) ;)
Reach out for literally anything. I'm just across the "really big lake", and with you in my heart. Right now, and forever.

Allan Ritchie :
Lloyd and I go back a long time, we were classmates and I considered him to be one of my best friends. We had many differences in opinion but we shared many common interests interests in life. I will miss the hour+ phone calls we’d have almost monthly to catch up on each of our latest endeavours. If I ever wanted to find the best of the best when it came to ATVs, autos, rv’s or the latest quality gadgets I didn’t have to do any research, I would just call Lloyd. He was very meticulous in everything he did and he wouldn’t be satisfied until whatever he was working on was perfect in every way.
I will always treasure the great memories of a man who loved life and had strong opinions. I feel honoured to have been part of his life, but I am saddened by his departure. He was much too young.
Whenever I log into my computer and it asks the security question: “who is your best friend?” It will always be Lloyd. Rest In Peace buddy!
Our sincere condolences to the entire Teghtmeyer family.
Joy and Jill my heart is broken for you both no one should ever have to go through what you have and are going through. Love you both as always Val and I are here for you.
Pat and Valerie OHare:
We are so so sorry for your loss. Our hearts hurt for Jill and Joy. I remember Lloyd as a happy man, enjoying life to the fullest! His greatest love and pride were his kids! Our deepest condolences .
So sorry Joy to read about Lloyd. Our sincerest sympathy to you and Jill.
Carolyn and Wayne Moss
Growing up I spent a great deal of time with Lloyd both at Chestermere and Mara lake where Lloyd was always willing to let me “spot” in the boat as he and his friends would water ski. I always loved being included. He also took the time to chat about whatever was going on in my world and was completely present in whatever activity we were doing to make it feel like at that moment it was the most important thing going on even if it was as simple as cleaning up the yard at Mara in spring time. I enjoyed his full laughter and ear to ear smile and am greatly saddened that I won’t get to experience that again. All my move to his family. xoxo
This makes me so sad, My thoughts go out to Joy and Jill. What a difficult time for everyone. I hope that his note to you gives somehow some comfort. I am at a loss for words. Take care of each other.
So sorry Joy. Thinking of you and Jill. Let me know if there is anything I can do. Lots of love and hugs.
