Lloyd was always my hero growing up. He and Uncle Lloyd and Aunt Dorothy and Doris were so good to me. I felt like a princess when I stayed with them. Then Gladys did the same. Will surely miss him❤️❤️

I was just one of the innumerable teens that wandered in and out of the Bliss household through friendship with the Bliss family.

The misery of my home life would have been incomprehensible to them -- but in spending time with that family I found something so amazing it has stayed with me throughout the duration of my life.

Lloyd and Gladys Bliss opened their hearts and home to almost everyone. They not only so obviously loved and respected each other, they cherished their own kids and made everyone feel so welcome there that it became a gathering place for all. They valued friendship and people in ways I'd never seen before.

As time progressed and I became involved in helping other people from all walks of life, I used the template I'd seen in the Bliss home -- open hearts, a completely non-judgmental demeanor, kindness and an ever-willing-to-listen ear.

I never heard either of them say a negative word about anyone and they so obviously looked for the good in people that everyone felt at home in their presence.

Lloyd was an incredible man -- one that would ultimately leave a lasting legacy of love and devotion to his family and others that was astounding in its reach -- and all the while make everything seem so simple, so natural and so easy that you would think he never faced a challenge, shed a tear or had a difficult day in his entire life.

He made his home a lively and fun yet peaceful place for himself, his family and others -- and he welcomed virtually everyone into his world seemingly without reservation. In doing so, he changed lives, changed hearts and left an impression that, for many, would never fade.

I often think of him in my work and pray that I will be even 1% as successful in reaching people as he was -- and I am thankful for having known such an amazing human being.

Godspeed you to your destination, Lloyd.
Heaven awaits.

Aunt Gladys and family,
Uncle Lloyd will definitely be missed but his spirit and joy for life will forever be remembered. I have thought about and smiled several times this week as I think about him and all of you. As we all celebrate his life down here, we know that he is doing well in Heaven with all of his family and friends who have passed before him. I know that Grandma and Grandpa Kalso are taking good care of him up there.
Love, Neal Kalso
*I enjoy the photo of the three of them

I’m so sad to hear of the passing of this sweet, sweet man. Uncle Lloyd was so kind and a true gentleman. The love for his family was evident to all. I have such happy memories of time spent with the Bliss families during my childhood.
Much love to Aunt Gladys, and to cousins Terry, Randy, Connie and Carol.

I will always remember Uncle Llyod as one of the most positive forces in my life. I loved him and his family. When everything was going wrong in my life, he always offered hope. Without him, I would have died years ago.
