My deepest sympathy to the family in the passing of Lloyd. I had the honor of knowing and learning from Lloyd in my UAW career. He was definitely a person of integrity, commitment and passion for working people.

So very sorry. Uncle Lloyd was always so good to me growing up. My daughter and her friends still talk about the trip we made some years back and visited in Bliss. I wish I lived closer not only to attend the service but throughout my life so spending time around him and the family could have been possible.. Prayers for Uncle Lloyd, he’s back with Aunt Jackie now..

I am so sorry I couldn’t be to the service. Uncle Lloyd was one of my favorite uncles. I will never forget him. He was a very special man.

Lloyd was my “great” uncle, not genealogically, but because he was always great to me. He got me interested in sports, giving me my first toy bat in my early childhood, which I promptly used to bat his kneecap. He was a best friend of my Dad (Floyd), and when he died, Lloyd helped me keep socialized and on the right path. He took me hunting, fishing, and started a little league team so I could be a baseball player. He took me to see the Detroit Tigers play a double header in Briggs Stadium against the Yankees. Charlie Maxwell hit 4 home runs in those two games, and the Tigers won both. One of many childhood memories of a life time for me, courtesy of my great Uncle Lloyd.
