- Lloyd was given the gift of life on July 7, 1943. On Sunday, November 19, 2017 it was his turn to return this gift. While this was difficult, Lloyd was grateful for his 74 years of life and certainly made the most of it.
Lloyd served in the United States Army for over three years, most of which were served at Fort Wainwright, Alaska. While he showed off many talents over the years, Lloyd's passion was building camps in Northern Maine. He recently took a trip with family to visit many of these places including camps at Mt. Chase, B Pond, Babble Brook, Jo Mary Lake, and various North Maine Woods Checkpoints. Another passion he had was being involved in racing at Unity Raceway where he drove and then became Tech Inspector for several years. He also held jobs as an electrician, parts store manager, plowing town roads, and cutting and hauling wood.
Lloyd was larger than life and touched the lives of many. He was known for his sense of humor and he inspired others to work hard and have fun. He will be greatly missed by his daughter Lucinda and her husband Rod of Stetson, his son L.D. of Dixmont, and his grandchildren and absolute pride and joy Cody, Sidney, Loagyn, Bradley, and Madelyn. He will also be missed by his brother Merle of Hampden, many nieces and nephews, his cat Juliette and his sidekick Daisy, and an amazing number of friends too numerous to list.
Lloyd was predeceased by his mother Alfreda, father Errol, brother Perley, sister Doris, father-in-law Clair, mother-in-law Ruth, brother-in-law Elmer, sister-in-law Carrie Ann, nephews Ronnie and Jeremy, and his antler hunting black lab Molly. Lloyd will be joining those he has lost including longtime friends Harry, Leo, Gary, and Lindley wherever the cool guys hang out to drink beer, hunt, fish, and play cribbage.
At Lloyd's request he wanted his friends and loved ones to gather "for a cold beverage to tell stories and laugh" for what he liked to call a Shin Dig. Please join the family for this celebration on Sunday, November 26, 2017 at 4 p.m. at the Millennium Banquet Room 416 Oxbow Road in Palmyra. Light refreshments will be served. He wasn't a flower kind of guy so the family asks that you bring a written memory or photo of Lloyd to place in a special memory box and if you would like to make a donation in his memory you may do so to the Dixmont Scholarship Association, 372 Moosehead Trail, Dixmont, Maine 04932.
Lloyd and the family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to the Veteran's Administration for their support, the CHCS Hospice Team (particularly Amy and Angie), Judy from Maine Home Health, and Tyler Tozier for supporting him with his final wishes, and to the many loved ones who helped to make his entire life, including his final weeks, full of special memories.
