Lloyd served in the United States Army from August 1963 to August 1966, and in the Army Reserve until August 1969. He married Carol Ann Clinton; they later divorced. Lloyd worked in auto body repair, scrap and salvage. He also enjoyed auto body repair and painting as a hobby.
He loved the sunshine, spending time with family and friends, raking and gardening, free hand drawing, collecting model cars, and Native American art. He was a family historian and enjoyed sharing family pictures and memories. He was gifted with the ability to repair items others would consider non repairable, and teaching all he knew to others.
