Lloyd C. Beyers, 95, of Mesa, Ariz., passed into the Lord's care on January 14, 2013.
Lloyd was born July 19, 1917, in Bloomington. He married Dorothy M. Robinson on July 16, 1938, in Logansport.
Lloyd's career was in Aluminum manufacturing, with both Alcoa in Lafayette, from 1940-1954, and Anaconda in Terre Haute, from 1964 until retirement. Lloyd ran a family-owned Service Station in Dorothy's hometown of Monticello, from 1954-1964, and then went back into manufacturing. He spent many of his retirement years in Terre Haute, but moved to Mesa in 2001, making many friends and enjoying wonderful years 'in the sun'.
He had a love for his Masonic work of 69 years, and was a two-time Worshipful Master; he was also a member of Scottish Rite, Shrine and Eastern Star. His greatest love was transporting children from Terre Haute to the Shriner Hospitals. He learned to fly as a teenager and had his own small plane for many years. That passion was carried on to his sons, a grandson and a grandson-in-law. He was a golfer and a bridge-player, and always whistled as he went through each day.
He is survived by his wife of 74 yrs, Dorothy of Mesa; and children, Ron (Bernie) Beyers, of West Lafayette and Mesa; Diane (Jamie) McInnes, of Delta, British Columbia, Canada and Mesa; Sally (Joe) Reynolds, of Portage; Rob Beyers, of Mesa, Gayle (Larry) Webb, of Indianapolis; also ten grandchildren; fourteen great-grandchildren; and one great-great grandchild.
A grandson and great-grandson preceded him in death.
