Lloyd Hallum family,
I first worked with Lloyd at Boeing in the mid 60's. He was a master tool and diemaker. He took on every job with great passion and hard work and he expected me as his helper to do the same. You always knew where he stood on any subject. His nickname at Boeing was "smokin Joe Hallum" because of his very hard work on any project. I later worked for him at way pattern. Lloyd was a great mentor for me in my lifelong career as a tool and maker.
Rest in peace, old friend. Dale Segraves

Lloyd was my boss, mentor, and friend. He loved his family and made sure they knew it. He was a great man that would give people another chance when others wouldn't. I remember he loved to design and build stuff, and I mean everything. He tackled every job and task with passion, and expected his helpers to have the same level of passion also. He was genuine and straight forward with everyone. You never had to guess how Lloyd felt about something. I remember canoeing with Lloyd and friends on the Caney river. My good friend Jimmy "Bear" Stewart and I flipped our canoe over, unexpectedly, right front of Lloyd. Lloyd laid down and laughed so hard, that a group of turkey hunters came over the bank of the river, thinking that they had heard a flock of turkeys!! Lloyd loved to play hard and work hard with equal enthusiasm. The boy could eat pile of corn on the cob too, like a buzz saw! I have many great memories of exciting adventures with Lloyd. Lloyd had a huge impact and influence on my life, that growed me up a lot. I love him a lot, and I won't forget him.
