    We regret to advise of the death of Douglas Michael Lloyd, suddenly on 14 October 2016 in Ottawa at the age of 55.

    Doug joined the Public Service later in life and held many positions including leading the Financial Systems Authority (Treasury Board Secretariat), and as the Chief Financial Officer at the Immigration and Refugee Board. Doug's work at the Department of National Defence saw him in multiple Director General roles including Infrastructure, Environment and Engineering Services, as well as Nuclear Safety and Fire Safety. Working at DND was like returning home for him as he was proud of the many formative years that he had spent as a young man in the Army Reserves where he served with 30 Field Regiment Royal Canadian Artillery in Ottawa and had considerable Class B Reserve service as well.

    Doug was an independent consultant for many years, running his company, Cambrian Consulting. In the early days, his areas of expertise included Project Management (in particular Major Crown Projects), Strategic Advice, Procurement, and even Unix scripting and testing. In his late 30s, after years of successful consulting, Doug started and completed his MBA at the University of Ottawa. In his 40s he earned his Certified Management Accountant (CMA) designation and in 2015 he successfully defended his PhD thesis, "An N-Dimensional Model For Predicting Success And Failure In Canadian Industry," at Szent István University, in Budapest, Hungary and achieving the highest possible honours.

    Doug also invested countless hours mentoring others, both professionally and personally. He provided guidance, his wisdom, natural leadership, and a willingness to invest time in others. He also served as a Trustee for Zone 4 of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board from 2008 to 2010 and was recognized for this work by the awarding of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubillee medal.

    The family will receive friends on Wednesday, 19 October 2016 at the Pinecrest Visitation Centre (2500 Baseline Road, Ottawa) from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. A Celebration of Doug's Life will be held on Thursday, 20 October in the Pinecrest Chapel at 4:30 p.m. A Reception will follow. Doug always loved fresh flowers. In celebration of Doug, we encourage friends to send flowers or else make a donation to the charity of their choosing. Online condolences may be made at{khOct2016}
