Lloyd attended country schools near Valley City before enlisting in the Army National Guard in the 1950’s.

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.
