Yesterday, Jan. 10th, everyone involved with antique automobiles lost a friend. Lloyd passed at his home in Lithopolis, Ohio of an apparent stroke.
Lloyd was a true character and gentleman, known for his overdrives around the country, but also known as a restorer of dozens of classic cars. He was a wealth of knowledge which he shared with everyone. I will deeply miss him as will all those who knew him. The world lost a couple IQ points yesterday.
What a Gentleman hes was . Sorry to hear .
Prayers to the Family .Spoke to him about the overdrive for my 37 buick 6 months ago .
God Bless Lloyd !!!
Bought a Model A with one of his conversions several years ago and, when it didn't work, gave him a call to see if he could provide any help. I was surprised at the information and concern he offered after all those decades since he did the work. He was truly concerned that I was able to get it operating and made me pledge to call him if I had any more trouble. What a loss - not many like him any more.
He was a fixture at most Glidden Tours and was usually helping people fix their cars. He will be missed.
Thought everyone might like a last picture of Lloyd and Shirley. They bickered all the time and loved each other deeply. They were a special couple.
