Lloyd spent 4 years in the Marines and 21 in the air force. He loved his family and adored his wife. His favorite things to do were float the river, take trips to the zoo and just sit on his porch and split a beer with his wife. He will be remembered as a strong silent loving man of very few words. He took on the role of a father when times were hard and showed his boys how to be men. His grandchildren were the apples in his eyes. He will be missed but never forgotten.
