I was saddened to hear of Lloyd's passing. I regret that I did not hear about it in time to make it to the viewing or funeral service. I would have been honored to pay my respects in person. He was a kind and generous man who taught us a lot about life when we worked at the cabinet shop many years ago. He also taught us great carpentry and woodworking skills. I thought of him recently when I was renovating our kitchen. It wouldn't have been possible without the skills I learned in that shop. My condolences to Ms. Pat, Lloyd S., Mark, and the entire family. I know he will be missed by all who knew him.

Remember a kind man with a wonderful smile enjoying life. We did a lot of his cabinets in his contracting days, in a white t-shirt with his cigarettes rolled in the sleeve is my first thought when think of him. Thoughts and prayers for all the family.
