The Trent University community is saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Roy Alexander Lockhart. Dr. Lockhart was a professor of sociology at Trent from July 1, 1972 – July 1, 1994.
Below is an excerpt from his obituary:
LOCKHART, ROY ALEXANDER (SANDY) - December 20, 1932 -July 13, 2015
Born in Calgary to Alexander Brereton Lockhart and Gladys Mae (Wrigley) Lockhart, Sandy grew up in Vancouver. He graduated in 1952 from North Vancouver High School and obtained a BA and MA from SFU and Ph.D. from the University of Essex, England. From 1972 to 1994 he taught at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. Sandy was a mountain climber, a gunsmith, a photographer, a furniture maker and most passionately, an aviator. He is survived by his wife Elizabeth, his son Cameron (Krista) and brother Peter (LaVonne), as well as cousins Ted and Mac Evans of Ontario and the Bourne boys, Drew, Rick and Rob, of Vancouver. Instead of a formal service, an informal gathering of family and friends to share memories will be held at a later date.
The University extends heartfelt sympathies to Dr. Lockhart’s family and friends, and to all who knew him at Trent University.
