Lloyd was a retired Engineer who owned his own company in Rockford, IL. After retiring to Phoenix, he loved to golf, bowl, swim and do woodworking. He and Lynda loved to travel all over the world making memories that will last forever.
Many thanks for all the love and support from his many friends at Rock Steady Boxing. Very special thanks to Sylvia and her Angels at Hospice of the West, Ginny, Shari, Lisa, Marie, Caroline, April, Scott & Linda. Last but not least, the Angel in his life with the biggest wings, his caregiver Tammy, who he adored. Lloyd was an extraordinary man and a wonderful husband. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. He fought a horrible disease with courage & determination. Now he can rest in peace in the arms of the Lord.
