Play Tribute Movie

Born on June 19, 1947 in the Westley Hospital that was located in Oklahoma City.

As a child Lloyd spent hours exploring the neighborhood playing at the creek, riding horses bareback, and finding small trouble having gotten sidetracked on his walk to elementary school. He showed an early interest in music building his own guitar out of a cigar box as a small child, calling it his “dikadune” for the sound the strings made.

He attended Madison Elementary, Taft Junior High, and NW Classen High School where he graduated in 1965.

Lloyd enlisted in the Air Force during the Vietnam War and served from November, 1967 to July, 1969. He served as Major Command as an AC&W operator. He trained in Biloxi, Mississippi and Fort Lee, Virginia and deployed to Kumejima in the Southern China Sea, working radar call sign.

Returning to OKC, he pursued his love of music with his bands Springwater and Pierce Arrow while continuing to study music and education at OU, UCO, and OCU.

Lloyd began teaching AP English, writing, and literature at North East High School for OKC Public Schools and also taught at Star Spencer High School for the next 30 years. Lloyd both attended and taught at UCO and Southern Oklahoma City Junior College, which later became OCCC.

Seeking a new challenge while teaching full time, he took the LSAT entrance exam for law school after deciding on a whim the night before to do so. Securing one of only seventy-four places, he was admitted to the Oklahoma City Law School and graduated three years later with Juris Doctor of Law.

Lloyd is survived by his wife Candace; daughters Simone and Jenny; son Brandon; three nieces; three nephews; and eleven grandchildren.

Preceded in death by his parents Haskell George and Dovie Moon; his sister Georgia Hutton, and brothers Jimmy and JD.

Lloyd loved not only people, but his treasured pets: Kukla, Kosmo, Pepper, Pertelote, Rosie, Aja, and P-Kitty.

Lloyd loved writing music and lyrics on his treasured Gibson which he bought for himself right after high school, playing music with his many friends, performing for audiences, and enjoying The Craic (an Irish tradition of good company, good conversation, and good entertainment).

On Saturdays, you would either find him in Norman at OU football games or at home following all the college games.

Mondays found him at Belle Isle enjoying pizza and beer with family and friends.

He enjoyed his travels to New Mexico and Colorado to see friends and especially loved adventures on European trip and Mediterranean cruises. Though his idea of going no further than Okarche was just fine, his adventures in Dubrovnik, Barcelona, Switzerland, Florence, Rome, St. Paul de Vence, Brussels, and Naples provided rich and treasured memories. His heart was always with Oklahoma.

Lloyd loved to engage people by following logic and reason instead of emotion when discussing politics, current events, and history.

He held wide ranging interests and knowledge such as cars - Porsche, Corvette, Ford, and Mercury; all genres of music - blues, country, rock and roll; literature -Canterbury Tales in original middle english, Shakespeare, American and English poetry, especially Robert Frost. Also science-fiction - Asimov, Haldeman, Philip Dick, Robertson Davies, and Curt Vonnegut; history - medieval France, European, American from colonial to contemporary, especially Barbara Tuchman’s insights.

Most of all, Lloyd was the most forgiving and kind soul.

Dr. Moon was the most impactful teacher I had during my time at SSHS. I had the privilege of having him as my AP English teacher...he was the one teacher that prepared me for college. He had a gift for challenging students to think outside of the box, to envision success, and to expand the boundaries of learning. The ultimate goal of teaching is to make a positive/lasting impact on a person’s life...Dr. Moon did that and more. He truly made a profound impact in my life and I am thankful to have had him as a teacher, he will be missed...RIP Dr. Moon

Mr Moon was my favorite teacher at S.S.H.S. Looked forward to going to his class everyday. I liked to read, but his class made me love to read, even that hard to understand Shakespeare!!! He was a awesome teacher and a great man. He will forever be remembered and missed by all of his students at Star Spencer.
To his family and friends, may God grant you strength, courage and peace of mind to get through these difficult times. You are in my prayers!!
Forever a Bobcat!🐾

As my brother in law, Lloyd and I had a unique relationship. I always enjoyed when we would get together for whatever the event was. He and I shared having been in military service during the Vietnam conflict and although neither of us were involved in actual combat we had a common bond just knowing we served during the same period. It was unnecessary to talk about it but it created a brotherhood for us. We shared many stories from the past but mostly we shared our enjoyment of Oklahoma Football. Lloyd was an avid sports fan and even more for the Sooners and college football.
Lloyd was one of the most intelligent, talented, educated and caring man I have ever known but he never wore it on his sleeve. He never discussed his background unless directly asked. He will be missed greatly.

So many fond and favorite memory is hard to say . I guess the one was when we were about 15-16yrs old when I talked u into inducing me to Mickey . The deal was I had to make u chocolate chip cookies well i didn't know how to cook anything but did manage with a friends help to make u some without burning them so the chocolate chip cookies lead to Mickey and I getting married (50 yrs) now . So many fun loving caring things thru the years that u have said and done for others will always remind me of u and our great friendship. Am sending u Chocolate Chips cookies like I promised when we spoke last. Love U and always in my Heart ! Margaret

Lloyd was my sweet brother in law. He was so fun to talk with because he had such a depth of knowledge of so many topics. But my favorite topic to discuss with him was college football. He was a Sooner through and through. We spent many Saturdays watching football before we left for a game, then listening to football after the game.
It was a joy for us to welcome him into the family. He was so kind and witty. Lloyd was so slow to take offense at anyone, always believing the best of people. Such a happy gracious man, we will miss him dearly.

What I liked most about his class was his ability to get you to think about things outside your world. I would sit in his class during academic team meetings and just listen to him talk about his daughter and how at such a young age she did well on the ACT. I remember him talking to us about being successful and doing more than just getting a job and working. He really did inspire and his words made me feel like I was a smart person. He will be missed. I have often shared stories of him with my kids. His positive impact went further than he could possibly imagine. R.I.P.

The time has come to say good by to my life long best friend. My heart is heavy for this great loss. Things will never be the same without him but thankful for the times we had, the dreams we shared, the good and the bad and the future we all wanted. The memories are all that remain now and the longing again for the great friendship that will always remain in my heart. Good by old friend and I believe that someday we will meet again....Mickey Guy
