Loyd served his country in the Navy from 1969 to 1975. He completed his initial training at Treasure Island, California, and completed many courses as an Electronics Technician.
He worked for Texas Instruments, Vivitar and Photographic Maintenance until becoming disabled from a staff infection which resulted in the loss of vision from his right eye.
For several years, he made his home with an elderly uncle, Walter Yates, in Commerce, Hunt, Texas at Walter's farm and helped care for him until his passing in 2007.
Loyd was an irreplaceable part of our lives and his passing has left a hole that cannot be filled by any means. We lost our Loyd, Apr 24 2013, at about 4:45 a.m.
I think we've been running on shock, since. We all thought he'd recover from what we thought was the flu, and later found out was pneumonia.
As Loyd said when they checked him in at the hospital: "It's a new experience in pain"....and, I think that's what we're experiencing, now - but, in a much different manner.
Loyd was a crotchety ole bachelor-guy - but, he was a fun, kind, caring, opinionated and compassionate human being and will be SO sorely missed, it can't even be expressed in words.
Loyd: I will miss your hugs, your freedom in expression, your honesty, your neverending sense of humor, and your integrity: qualities that are not found enough, these days, as far as I'm concerned. Besides loving you, your absence from the world is just a shame, in general. The world needs MORE people like you - NOT LESS.
