Obituary, William G Lloyd

William G. Lloyd, 87, of Sylvania, passed away Thursday, December 13, 2012, at The Toledo Hospital surrounded by his loving family. He was born December 9, 1925, in Pueblo, Colorado to Max L. and Mary (Werntz) Lloyd. He served in the Navy during WWII and was employed in the Aircraft Industry with Sperry for 32 years, retiring in 1984. William was an open person who never stopped learning. A sensitive soul, he loved singing, meeting people, giving and receiving hugs, and vanilla ice cream. He had a generous and giving nature: “You possess only that which you give away.”
