April 9, 1947 - November 28, 2021
Lloyd was born on April 9, 1947 to Ray and Erma Andrew (Figgins) in Auburn, NE. He grew up in Valley and Waterloo, NE, graduating from Waterloo High School in 1967. In his spare time, he worked at the junkyard his grandfather owned and restored old cars with his brother, Chuck. At times, they’d even race them. After graduating high school, Lloyd joined the U.S. Army on September 18, 1967, serving in the Vietnam War until his honorable discharge on May 6, 1969. During his time in the service, Lloyd received the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Air Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, and the Army Commendation Medal. On May 9, 1970, he married Luella (Penne) at St. John’s Church in Valley, Ne. Their union was blessed with two daughters, Cindy and Sherry. Lloyd and Luella lived in Waterloo, where Lloyd worked at Rob-See-Co. Then he purchased his first home in Valley. He later started working at Valmont where he was a dedicated employee for 35 years before retiring in 2009. Lloyd’s interest in cars continued throughout his life. He was a member of the Chevy Classic Club as well as the Street Machine Club. He was very proud of his first collector car, a 1955 Chevy which he painted maroon. Weekdays were spent working on his cars and weekends were spent at car shows. He added a 1963 Chevy Impala and a 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria to his collection. He taught his children about cars, even how to change oil. When he wasn’t doing something hands on with cars, NASCAR was his favorite sporting event to watch. Lloyd’s family and friends will remember being able to count on him to help them when something needed fixed on their cars. In addition to his passion for cars, Lloyd also enjoyed country music and appreciated a good meal at Applebee’s with a Pepsi. He was a lover of pets and there was always a dog in his home. The foster dogs his daughter rescued quickly took a liking to him as they could tell he was a “dog” person. Lloyd was preceded in death by his parents, Ray Andrew and Erma Hester and his son-in-law, Kirk. Lloyd is survived by his wife, Luella Andrew; daughters, Cindy Andrew and Sherry (Brian) Welton; and grandchildren, Nick, Connor, Alexa, Andrew, and Kirk Jr. Memorials may be directed to the family for designation at a later date.
