Born October 10, 1941, in Richmond, Indiana, to Loyal M. and Ruth E. Jackson Ross, Lloyd was a life-long resident of this community. He was a 1959 graduate of Richmond High School. Following graduation, Lloyd began working at NATCO, where he worked until he retired in 2000. Lloyd was a member of Crosspointe Biker Church in Connersville, Indiana. He was also a member of the Sons of the American Legion and the National Rifle Association. Lloyd enjoyed gardening, tending flowers, feeding the birds, and riding his tractor on his trails and through the woods. He loved attending church, going to southern gospel and bluegrass music festivals, and spending time with his family. Lloyd loved his wife dearly. He was a wonderful father, whose main goal in life was to raise his kids so they could take care of themselves. Lloyd was a loyal and fun-loving friend; he always had a smile and a laugh to share.
