So sorry to hear of this. We first met Lloyd & Shirley at Trinity church. Then I worked with her at hospital but knew her best as my nurse many times I was ill. Both were wonderful caring people. Lloyd was a great cop and always friendly and loved to visit. And we loved watching Jim all the years of wrestling. Our sympathy to the kids and grandkids. Two very special people.

Our sympathies to Lloyd’s family. He will be missed. Lloyd was truly one of the good guys. I fondly remember the years he worked security at the drive-in. He was always calm and friendly and kept things under control. It was a joy to know him.

Lloyd, I can just imagine the reunion in Heaven of the Mitchell PD who all worked together in the 60’s-70’s. What a great group! You and Shirley blessed all who experienced your kindness and generosity. Rest well.

Sorry to hear of Lloyd's passing. I had the pleasure of working with him when I was a dispatcher at the Mitchell police department. He was a great officer and always there to help anyone in need. Shirley is waiting for you with open arms.
