1936 - 2021


Lloyd Mullaly, 84, of Nanaimo, BC, peacefully passed away on March 17th from heart failure and a short bout of pneumonia. A memorable character and stubborn to the end, he had just bounced back from his third stroke and was making plans for his future when his heart wore out. 
Born in Cold Lake, Alberta, Lloyd, his mother and siblings moved to Nanaimo when he was a young teen, left school early to support his family, and had been a regular at bowling alleys, old-school coffee shops, donut joints and plain food eateries (“No butter, no cheese, no mayonnaise, no nuthin’!) ever since.
Although a roofer and roofing company owner for most of his life, Lloyd’s true passion was building and racing cars. In later years he sponsored other drivers and worked on a number of pit crews well until just a few years ago. His all-original old-timer 1932 Hudson #9 still holds the track record at Western Speedway for its class.
Bitten young by the collecting bug, Lloyd loved old furniture, old books, old magazines and toys, but especially old cars, old car memorabilia, old car books and magazines, old car anythings, and could often be found at swap meets, garage sales and collectable shows.
Lloyd was predeceased by his parents, Thelma Aigner & Percy Mullaly, his brothers Glen, Pat and Mel, and his half brother Gord. He is survived by his two children Karen & Glen of Victoria, BC, and his half-sister Dianne.
No services will be held due to Covid restrictions, as well as the fact Lloyd was a private man who didn’t like ceremony or fuss. Donations to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada, or a black coffee and apple fritter raised in his memory, are appreciated.

Lloyd Martin Mullaly was my oldest best friend over for more than 70 years. I also loved his mother, Thelma, and called her "Mom'.  I shall miss seeing Lloyd with his warm smile and bright blue eyes,  but know he is in a much better place now.   No more pain. Until we meet again. My heartfelt condolences to Glen and Karen and also Dianne.

I am very sorry that Lloyd passed away. 

I first met Lloyd when I was 16 and my mum knew his mum. I also share Lloyd's love of classic cars and remember him driving his Hudson around the bowl at Beban Park

Rest in peace Lloyd

My thought are with you and your family.

Karen and Glen: We were so pleased to know your dad. He was definitely all you have shared about him. Our experience of Lloyd was that he definitely was his own man, with his own opinions but always respectful and willing to listen, a trait to be admired. He was kind to us and we enjoyed seeing him. We are sorry for your loss.
