Lloyd was born Feb. 3, 1918, in Austin, Texas, and died April 13, 2021, of natural causes.
He grew up in Forest Hills, N.Y., while spending summers visiting family in Austin, Galveston, and Wichita Falls. He was an Eagle Scout and as such served in FDR’s inauguration ceremony and parade. At the age of 16, Lloyd enrolled at Princeton and played on the lightweight football team. After graduating he continued his studies at Harvard Law School.
Upon hearing the news of Pearl Harbor, Lloyd joined the Navy and rose through the ranks to become a lieutenant commander. During this time, he met and married his wife of 63 years, Frances Potter, in Washington, D.C. After the war they moved to the Lower Rio Grande Valley in Texas, where he began his law practice. In 1959 he was invited by a childhood friend, Robert McGinnis, to join the firm that would become McGinnis Lochridge, where he remained active in law practice until his passing.
Lloyd was recognized for his strong belief in the importance of civility, ethics, and integrity, which guided his 75 years of legal practice. He was also a great supporter of Princeton and his class, and he served as vice president and president of ’38 from 2001 and Annual Giving chair from 1994 until his death.
Lloyd was predeceased by his wife, Frances, and two children. He is survived by four children, eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Lloyd will be remembered for his kindness, graciousness, and courtliness. The Princeton Class of ’38 wishes to extend its condolences to all of Lloyd’s family.
