He will be missed by all those who had the great pleaseure of ever knowing him.

  5. The Reid Family :

    Lloyd was an adopted grandfather to my children as their grandfathers lived too many miles away. In particular, Anthony and Lloyd shared a special bond (and many mints on his front stoop). I never knew what they talked about, but I’m sure it was something deep or nefarious. I will miss teasing Lloyd about the many years that THE GIRLS hung together. God bless you, you made an impact on many of our lives. Thank you Lloyd, rest in peace. We are thinking of you Audrey, 62 years!! What a wonderful accomplishment. Both of you have enriched our lives so much.
    Richard, Debbie, Michael, Anthony & Jessica
