Lloyd R. Carter was born on May 29, 1951 in Shreveport, LA to Raymond and Mary Elizabeth Carter and passed away on January 7, 2021.

Lloyd retired from General Motors where he wore numerous hats in many different areas. The highlight of his long career was having the privilege of escorting President Bill Clinton through the plant alongside the Secret Service. He often said he did not miss the job, but he sure missed the people.

Lloyd was an Air Force Veteran, Patriot Guard Rider, former police officer, President of the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce and a Caddo Parish Auxiliary Deputy.

Lloyd was a kind, generous man who loved his wife, daughter, family, pets, friends, camping, cool cars, motorcycles, his country, community, and the Lord. He always had a kind word, an incredible sense of humor, and generously gave of himself with the sincerity of a kind and compassionate heart. He never met a stranger- they were just friends he hadn't met yet, but give him a couple minutes for the words to flow and you could feel the friendship grow.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Elizabeth Carter and brother, Milford Carter. Lloyd is survived by his wife, Angie; daughter Brittany and fiance' Michael; brother, Calvin and wife Dorsey; nephews, Mark and Donavin; sisters, Charlotte Braswell and Mary Beth (John) Ritter; niece Lacey, many great nieces and nephews, and many, many friends.

Services will be held to celebrate Lloyds life at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at Hill Crest Memorial Chapel in Haughton with Reverend Harold Coburn officiating. Interment will follow at the NW Louisiana Veterans Cemetery in Keithville. Visitation will be held on Monday, January 11, 2021 from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the funeral home.

Pallbearers will be Michael Ross, Carl Tew, William Tew, Dan Felicity, Glenn McKinney and Alan English. Honoary pallbearer will be Louis McGinty.

The family would like to thank Hill Crest Funeral Home, Pastor Harold Coburn, James Parker, Bossier Sheriff's Posse, Caddo Sheriff's Auxiliary, and the Patriot Guard Riders. Special thanks to Charles Gholson and Louis and Glenda McGinty for their guidance and support above and beyond.

It is hard to imagine how different life will be for us now, but we are thankful to have so much love and support from treasured friends like you. We find comfort in knowing that we are not alone and you are thinking of us.

Oh how I wish I was there in person! Two of my friends tested positive for COVID this past Friday and Saturday. I was with them both several hours a couple of days before and even though I feel alright so far I sure didn’t want to take the chance of passing this stupid plague along so am in quarantine. Daddy (Fred Braswell) married Elizabeth when I was about 10 years old and Mary Beth around 6. So two little girls got three brothers: Milford, Lloyd and Calvin who treated us like they always had sisters. WOW!! We were sure lucky! We got the best brothers. Brittney, Angie, Calvin and Dorsey and all - know that I am thinking of you and miss seeing you. Love to all the family and Lloyd’s many, many friends. We will all miss him terribly💕.

Another angel has gained their wings. Bruce worked at GM with Lloyd, and I met Lloyd through the Antique Car Museum and Street Rod Car Club. We are in Mopar Magic Car Club. Floyd never met a stranger, and once you knew him, the funny was on! Hugs and prayers to his family!

Angie I remember my first talent show. Lloyd play drums for me and persuaded me to enter the contest and I ended up winning first place. I guess you could say he started my career in 🎶 music. He was such an encourager.

We only had the privilege of meeting with Lloyd in person, a few times, when he and Angie visited Michigan. But, he definitely made you feel like you were old friends in just a few minutes.
I can’t tell you how many laughs we’ve had, from his jokes and cartoons on Facebook. They made us feel like we knew him pretty well. Always enjoyed seeing the pictures of the trips, and for sure enjoyed seeing how patriotic he was. I think he was loved by many, and will be missed by all. We are truly sorry for your loss Angie.
Love, John & Judy

I worked with Lloyd for many many years at the Shreveport GM plant.

Lloyd had the unique ability to make every single one of his friends - feel like they were truly special to him. I feel so privileged to have been included as one of his many friends.

My thoughts and my prayers for comfort are with Angie and Brittany and their extended families.

Please find comfort in how much his friends loved him too.

Our sincere condolences go out to Angie and the rest of Lloyd's family.
It's been a long time since we saw Lloyd, but we've stayed in touch. We'll miss Lloyd's caustic wit!

I worked with Lloyd for years he was always that happy person that you just enjoyed being around. He was the type that would cheer you up when you were having bad days. He will truly be missed.
