Lloyd was a familiar face to members of Alvo Fire Department at our car shows and pancake breakfasts even after he and Kathy moved to Lincoln, The corn field above was CRP land for several years and AFD stood by for prescribed burns. His name is the first listed on the Alvo Roll of Honor in the hallway outside the village office. Our condolences to his family.
