Lloyd was born on July 27, 1943 in Brushyknob, MO to Walter and Hazel Gray. Along with his parents, he and his younger siblings, Donald and Alice lived in Missouri until he was 10 years old and they moved to Nebraska.

Lloyd attended school in Louisville, NE and graduated in 1962. When he was 18 years old, he met the love of his life, Barbara Wiegert and they were united in marriage on June 6, 1964. Lloyd and Barbara were blessed with three children, Lisa, Michael and Kelly.

Lloyd worked at Western Electric (Avaya) for 38 years in a number of different roles in the cable shop. As a young man Lloyd enjoyed many outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing and camping trips with his family at Memphis Lake. He and Barbara also enjoyed bowling and were on a league with his parents for several years. He was a member of St. Columbkille Catholic Church for 44 years and took great pride in his duties as an usher. He and Barbara attended all their grandchildren’s many sporting events and they also loved to travel. Two of their favorite trips were an Alaskan cruise and a 16-day trip to Europe to celebrate their 50th Anniversary with the highlight being a visit to the Vatican. Although Lloyd had many interests, family was always the most important thing to him.

He was deeply loved by many and will be sorely missed. He will be remembered for his kindness, gentle nature, infectious smile and big bear hugs.

Lloyd is survived by his wife Barbara of 56 years; daughter Lisa Goldsmith (Robert) of Omaha, NE; son Michael Gray (Kristie) of Omaha, NE, and daughter Kelly Epperson (David) of Marathon, FL, grandchildren Matt (Kelsey), Erika (Spencer), Jordan, Brittany, Nathan, Nolan; great-grandchildren Eliza, Hayden, Rhett, Grayson, and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents and great granddaughter Saige Choquette.
