I met Llloyd thirty five years ago when I contracted him to do a job at my house at the time. I write this short memory becuase although I never met his family I did get to know him at the time. I was so impressed by him, his demeanor, his honesty and his desire to do not just good work but excellent quality eork. Years later I called him for some advice on a ob and he was very kind in addressing my questions. It is ironic that about two months ago my wife and I were looking at some problems with our flooring and we said that we needed to and would call Loyd. when I opened the newspaper today and saw his obituary a great sadness overcame and led me to write this. A great man has left us. May God open those doors quickly for his eternal life.
