Lloyd grew up in NYC where he attended A.B. Davis High School; class of 1954. He attended Harpur College in NY, now SUNY Binghamton, where he studied English but he received his BS from Columbia Univ.
He started his career in his father's art gallery in Manhattan, called Oestreicher's, before moving on to be a salesman for Xerox, Savin, Saxon, and CompuGraphic. He opened his own art gallery in Stamford CT but it didn't succeed. Later he worked for Digital Equipment Corp. (DEC), in the early days of computers, and became one of their best salesmen winning the DecAthelon award several times.
Lloyd moved his family to Danbury CT in 1972 where he became active in the community in the Kiwanis Club, Masonic Temple, as well as Brotherhood President at the United Jewish Center.
He was very much a people person and will be remembered for his friendly personality. He liked to say he never met a stranger.
His is survived by his four children but will be missed most by his four grandchildren, whom he loved dearly.
Lloyd was diagnosed with bladder cancer in the summer of 2015 but succumbed to complications during chemotherapy. He'd not been well since his heart surgery and the loss of his wife Dolores in 2010. He now joins her in eternal rest.
