He graduated from the University of Wyoming with a degree in Engineering and spent his career as a civil engineer for Barling Construction.
Lloyd was a passionate outdoorsman, who loved the challenges the outdoors brought. He had a creative and inventive mind, always seeking new challenges, artistically and mechanically.
