    I’ve had this page up on my computer since the time of Loyd’s passing. Each day I see this picture of him and his smiling face and I miss him. He was the best Uncle a kid could have. Always joking around and happily playing games with us kids – and always winning handily, I might add. I don’t know how he did it, but he could see about 10 steps ahead on a game like checkers.
    I will always remember Loyd asking “guess what’s in my hand and you can have it”. It was usually a coin, dice or some other trinket he’d picked up the casino or a garage sale. I looked forward to solving the mystery every time.
    There was just never a dull moment when Loyd was around, and he always, always made me laugh. Even right up till the end, he was funnier and more quick witted than anyone else in the room. He was a genuinely good person and a joy to be around, and I will miss him dearly.

    Loyd was a gentle and kind man and a great neighbor. Always cheerful and young-at-heart, he made our family (including our pets) feel welcome at and in his and Carol’s home. His love for both his immediate and extended family was evident in how he spoke about them and in his frequent walks up and down our street for his regular visits to his in-laws. We very much appreciated his diligence in caring for the security of the neighborhood and our property with his presence and watchful eye. We will miss seeing him active in his yard and at his many garage sales in which he delighted. Most of all, we will miss the casual, fun and spontaneous conversations that affirmed our connection as neighbors.

    Loyd was a special guy…he always had a smile and loved kidding around with the kids. We were so sorry to hear of his passing, but I know he’s somewhere playing cards, probably with Soph and Bert. Rest in peace Loyd!
