Lloyd served in the U.S. Army Air Force during World War II and enjoyed reminiscing about his time as a ball turret gunner in a B-17.

In addition to radios, Lloyd and his children enjoyed making displays of collected rocks, gemstones, and insects; he enjoyed hiking, photography and developed his own film; he could make and fix ANYTHING. He was also an expert of a well-played practical joke.
