    Lloyd was born in Fullerton, Nebraska, on September 27, 1917, to M. M. and Etta Babb Maybon.  He was raised in Nebraska until the age of fourteen when he and a brother traveled to Eastern Idaho looking for work during the Great Depression.  They were later joined by their parents and two younger brothers.  After spending two winters in he Newdale area, they resettled in the Lakeview Community near Marsing.  Lloyd farmed for a short time with his family before enlisting in the United States Air Force.  His four years of service in World War II encompassed the war's duration, taking him throughout the European theatre and Africa.
    Upon returning from Europe, Lloyd farmed near Homedale with his father and brothers.  In June of 1946 he met Caroline Joyce Leavitt and May 29, 1947, they were married at Bowmont, Idaho.  Their marriage was later solemnized in the Idaho Falls Temple August 27, 1963.  He and Caroline resided in Homedale five years before purchasing a farm near Melba in the fall of 1952 where for forty-two years he farmed, ran cattle, raised three children and retired.  On May 29th, 1994, Lloyd and Caroline, celebrated their 47th wedding anniversary.
    Lloyd was an active member of the LDS church, serving in numerous positions and capacities; most recently serving as an ordinance worker and tour guide at the Boise Idaho Temple.  He was also active in the Melba Community while his children were growing up.  He served in many ways, such as six years of service on the Melba School Board.
    Lloyd enjoyed traveling, fishing and hunting.  He loved the outdoors and spending time at his cabin in Donnelly on Cascade Lake.  His greatest joy was his children and grandchildren.  His happiest times were when he was with them.
