Obituary

Lloyd Sidney Overbo was born on December 6th, 1932 on a farm by Valley City, North Dakota to Sig and Lillian (Berg) Overbo. He went to heaven on April 1st, 2016 while residing at the Villa Maria, Fargo North Dakota.

Lloyd attended country schools near Valley City before enlisting in the Army National Guard in the 1950’s. During the Korean War he trained at Camp Rucker in Alabama; after an honorable discharge he went to work at the Fargo Foundry as a welder for 8 years. In 1963 he started working in sheet metal for heating and plumbing companies in North Dakota and Minnesota. In 1994, he retired at the age of 62.

Lloyd met Clarice Greb in 1951 at a Valley City policemen’s ball. In 1953 he married Clarice and together they had six sons; Timothy (Doreen), Gordon (Joyce), Russell (Terry), Wesley (Ellen), Jeffrey (Kathy), Kenneth (Susan). Lloyd loved to spend time with his family more than anything. He and Clarice hosted large family dinners and often had a house full of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and most recently great-great grandchildren. He loved camping, traveling to Medora and having Fourth of July picnics at home with family and friends.

Lloyd’s favorite hobby was wood working. He loved making Christmas presents for his family, especially for his grandchildren. An important milestone in Lloyd’s life was when he traveled to Norway to meet his relatives; it was so memorable to him that he talked about it daily.

Lloyd is survived by his loving wife Clarice, five sons, 17 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great grandchildren, one sister, many nieces and nephews, and friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents, 4 brothers, one sister and one son.

    Clarie, Wes, Ellen and the rest of the family – I have many fond memories of Lloyd. Some of them that stand out are camping in Medora, helping put in the foundation at the house North of town, Lloyd showing me his woodworking tools and talking about how he makes things and most recently him talking about his trip to Norway and learning that he had worked on my high school when it was being built He had so many experiences and loved to tell about them and I loved listening. I will never forget his wonderful smile. Love and prayers!!!
