Lloyd served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. His job was in artillery from 1952-1954.
Lloyd’s work career/ethic began delivering newspapers at the age of 9. As a young man home from the War he worked for the B & O Railroad for a time. He then obtained the job he truly loved and his career began in early 1960’s as an” Ironworker” under Union Local 549 out of Wheeling West Virginia. He worked on several power plants and helped build many bridges and numerous other jobs that required connecting steel. This career choice took him to many places including his favorite which was a six-month job in Guinea, Africa. This job was the thing he loved to do most no matter the dangers involved. It provided him with travel and he made some of the best friends of his life: Jack Whittaker, Jay Poff, Diz Bowers and Smokey Taylor to name only a few.
Lloyd spent a lot of time in the mountains at his camp where he could do the things he loved. He loved photography, riding motorcycles, four wheelers and he loved to hunt and fish. He never met a stranger, had many friends throughout his lifetime and he knew people everywhere he traveled. He lived a very unique life, which most people only dream of.
At this time, we will not be having funeral services due to the current Coronavirus pandemic. We will notify all after the pandemic to have a memorial service in honor of his life.
