Earl Lloyd Nord

In Memorial

May 14, 1955 – November 23, 2011

In Loving Memory of Earl who passed away peacefully in his sleep at home in Langley after a year long battle with cancer. Earl was born in Rosetown, Sask. Earl will be forever missed by his loving wife of 30 years Debbie and their son Doug. Predeceased by his father Lloyd. Survived by his Mother Edith, 12 brothers and sisters Linda (Vickers), Ken, Shirley (Powell), Daniel, Larry (Kitty), Faith (Bob) Steil, Myles (Connie), Pam (Akerstrom), Grace, (Jim) Nordin, Doris (Heck), Wanda (Chester) Kirk, & Joan Nord. He will be greatly missed by his countless nieces, nephews, friends and extended family on his wife’s side.

We would like to extend our Thanks and gratitude to Dr. Chi and his great staff at the Vancouver Cancer clinic in their fight to help end cancer. We would also like to express our thanks to Dr. Christopher Lee and the staff at the Surrey Cancer clinic, his family Dr. Mitchell Fagan and everyone else who helped us through our loss. We are eternally grateful to all of our family and friends for their Love and ongoing support. Earl may be gone but he will always live on in our hearts forever.

No service by request. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.


God saw you getting tired

When a cure was not to be

So He closed His arms around you

And whispered, “Come to me.”

You didn’t deserve what you went through

And so He gave you rest

God’s garden must be beautiful

He only takes the best.

So when we saw you sleeping

So peaceful and free from pain

We could not wish you back

To suffer that again.

    You are in our thoughts. Earl was a wonderful person and we will have nothing but fond memories. He had such a great sense of humor and it was obvious how much he loved his family.

    With love,

  2. Deb and Doug,

    Even though we knew Earl was not well, it was a shock to read of Earl’s passing.
    Words cannot express the sadness our family feels, and even though we will no longer be able to see him, he will be forever in our hearts.
    We have so many great memories of all those hockey games, ball games, school activites and road trips. As a friend, coach and coleague, Earl touched each of us in many ways. From David breaking Earl’s nose with just one pitch, to his motorcycle falling apart while Rick and Karly were driving it down hill (fast). Our family boating day (dogs and all)in the Indian Arm after loading up at that crazy Port Moody boat launch.
    We’ll miss you Earl, thank you for being a special part of our lives.

    Much love from The Butler’s (Rick, Lisa, David, Melissa and Karly). xoxox
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
