He passed away on January 20, 2013 in Spokane.
Lloyd attended the one-room school on Indian Prairie through 8th grade and graduated from Reardan High School in 1946.
Lloyd was active in FFA and became the first State Farmer from Reardan.
After a short time at WSU, Lloyd came back to the farm to start a dairy.
Being drafted into the army in 1952 forced Lloyd to sell his herd and his milk contract.
While stationed in Germany, Lloyd’s dad passed away so he came home to care for his mother and the farm.
Lloyd started dairying again and continued milking cows until 1991.
Lloyd married Norma Jean Henry in 1956.
They bought the farm from Lloyd’s mother and began expanding the dairy and raising a family.
After 40 years of milking cows they sold the dairy herd and began raising beef cattle.
Lloyd continued farming until a year ago when his health prevented him from working the animals or riding the tractor.
Lloyd is survived by his son David, at the home place, daughter Betty (Ed) Warner of Harrington, grandchildren Sarah, Josh, Emmalee, Hannah, Jerrod and Theo, his sister, Dorothy Mielke and sister-in-law Seville Lundgren.
He is preceded in death by his wife Norma, daughter Kathy and brothers Willard and Don.
Funeral services will be at CHENEY FUNERAL CHAPEL on Friday, January 25 at 2:00 p.m. Lloyd will be interned at Greenwood Memorial Terrace.
