    My thoughts go out to the family in this great loss. Lloyd’s sunny disposition was what I remember most about our high school days. He was such a prankster – you just never knew what he might be up to. Thinking of you especially, LuAnn, in the loss of your brother. It seems so unfair to lose him so young. Wishing all of you strength in the days ahead.

    It has been a number of years since I last saw Lloyd – probably our 5 year Class Reunion. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. He was a very nice person. My thoughts and prayers are with all of his family and friends.

    Jan and family,
    So sorry to hear about Lloyd. He brought a sweetness to our cousin picnics that I’ll miss. You’re in my thoughts. Please be gentle with yourselves, this is a difficult loss.

    My husband Phil and I met Lloyd for the first time last month at the KBEK studio when visiting my dearest friend, Colleen McKinney. Lloyd left his imprint on our hearts with his wit and genuine curiosity. Our condolences to his loved ones and his radio family.
