As his first cousin (and even sharing a name) (my middle name is Lloyd), I always felt close to Lloyd even though I didn't get to see him as often as I would have liked. We both grew up in military families, so our childhoods were spent all over the world. Thankfully, his father, my dear Uncle Lloyd, and mother, the supremely kind Aunt Margaret, would keep us apprised of all that was going on in his and Lisa's and Thelma's lives. When I did connect with Lloyd, we spoke for hours about music, comic books, films, television and history. I like to think we were on the same wavelength in those arenas. My regret now is that my son, Paul, did not get to really know his cousin. I do have happy memories of the times when we could be with Lloyd. I'm sure my late sister Patty and my very much alive sister Mary Nell would agree.

Kayleigh and Mielenz family , it saddens me to learn of Lloyd’s passing at such a young age! He was always a happy person whenever I saw him ,had a dear smile for all, and loved life!
Kayleigh, you look a lot like your dad and that sweet smile you have is so like his. He was very proud of you and you brought him great joy. You are a beautiful young lady and I hope you will find love and peace knowing Lloyd is now in our Lord’s care. Love, Aunt Betty Anne (Ebert)

I have so many memories of Lloyd. I met him when I was 17 and he made an enormous influence on my life. More than he would ever know. He was always happy and smiling. He was always the person to ask about music, movies and most of all Dr. Who. I can never see Dr. Who and not think of Lloyd. Although we had not spoken in some time, he always held a special place in my heart and always will. You will be missed but will live on forever in our memories. Fly high my dear friend and keep on smiling.

I have very fond memories of Lloyd. When I think of him I always think of how he made me laugh. I so enjoyed hanging out with him and all of the obscure television shows that he introduced me to. I do believe that without Lloyd I would have never really enjoyed the brilliance of Lenny Bruce. I will always think of him with a big grin on his face. He will be missed, my condolences to his family.
