Name of creator
Lloyd George Warkentin was born on December 15, 1929 in Langham, Saskatchewan to Jacob and Aganetha (Thiessen) Warkentin. He grew up in Dalmeny, Saskatchewan, where he received his elementary and high school education. He received a Diploma in Administration from the University of Regina, and was a Fellow of the Institute of Canadian Bankers.
In 1953, Warkentin married Lena Kowalko of the Erwood, Saskatchewan district. Lena was a school teacher. The Warkentins adopted two daughters.
From 1948 to 1971, Warkentin worked for the Bank of Nova Scotia, where he eventually held assistant bank manager and bank manager positions. From 1971 until 1993, he was employed by the Government of Saskatchewan in the areas of credit union regulation and small business investment programs. In the 1980s, he was in charge of drafting the Saskatchewan Credit Union Act and the Co-operatives Act when they were redone in the 1980s. In 1993-1994, he was Business Manager at the Triple C School in the Cayman Islands.
Warkentin has been active in local churches throughout his life, and has been involved with Gideons International for over 50 years.
Warkentin is currently (2010) retired and living in Sidney, British Columbia.
