I have worked for Lloyd off and on but most memorably at Nash Phillips/Copus in the 80's. He was a great VP of Construction. Fun to be around? a strong family man and a good guy all around. I recently ran into him again Texas Grand Homes. At the Christmas Party we could not hardly stop talking about the past long enough for him to go up on stage and collect his 15 honors. To this day, we NPC'S still all asked about Loyd. Condolences to his beloved family.

Sharon Moore, November 17, 2016 A tribute to Lloyd When my husband & I first met Lloyd, he seemed like a right old grumpy man who was really having one of his moments when he was annoyed with something that was out of his control. As we got to know him slowly we realised how wrong we were. We grew so fond of him, and in fact he was just a nice teddy bear and that's what we liked to call him. He built us the most beautiful & spectacular house. Our house is the last house that he built. And do you know what he told Richard, the builder that took over from him? He told him that there was something that I wanted done to the house that he hadn't been able to complete and to make sure that he does it for me. He wanted to be sure that the house was completed exactly the way we wanted it. That was the type of guy Lloyd was. Lloyd wasn't just a builder, he became a very good friend too. He would always be smiling until something bothered him and he would get mad. He leaves behind a legacy of beautiful houses that he built and more importantly our house that he built for our family. I loved harassing him all the time. He said to me one day " you know I'm not supposed to see you every day" and then when I didn't see him for a few days he would ask me where I had been as he hadn't seen me. I always used to say to him that he will miss me bothering him and couldn't wait until we moved into the neighbourhood so that he could stop by and have English tea. Lloyd was such a great guy and we were all so fond of him, the kids loved him too. I told Lloyd only a few days before that we wouldn't close on the house until he came and was a part of it. He worked tirelessly and he deserves the full credit for building such a beautiful house for us. Thank you would simply not be enough. He worked way beyond to make us happy. We are deeply honoured and privileged & thankful to have known Lloyd in the short space of time that we knew him. Every time we look at the house we can see Lloyd, the love, time, effort and hard work that he put in for us. He will be so sadly missed by us all. Rest in Peace with love from the Miah family. Shipa & Sufian Miah, November 17, 2016 Lloyd was a really funny, hard-working and selfless guy, who enjoyed life to the fullest. I first met Lloyd at David Weekley Homes, where he was employed first as a Builder and later as a Project Manager in Grapevine, TX. He and I would meet on many weekends to go over monthly financials and other matters affecting the performance of his project and staff. He will be missed by many who worked with and for him. RIP Lloyd - your infectious laughter and humor will be missed for years to come. DAVID M. MCCLENDON, November 17, 2016
