     Lloyd was born at Beaver Dam, Utah, Oct. 7, 1917, to William Fife and Sarah Loveland Bowen.  He attended school at Beaver Dam, Collinston and Tremonton in Box Elder County, Utah.  He worked for Utah Power and Light Co., Royal Dairy and at Edgewood Hall Dairy as herdsman of registered cattle.  He and his family moved to Middleton in January, 1954.  There he was an artificial insemination technician for Cache Valley/Select Sires for 36 years.  He had strong feelings for his community and enjoyed serving on the Canyon County Planning and Zoning Commission.  Lloyd served for 12 years on the Middleton City Council and was on the Middleton Planning and Zoning Board as well.
     Lloyd was a high priest in the LDS Church.  He was a lifelong member and served in various capacities.  He was a dedicated servant of the Lord, Jesus Christ.
     Lloyd was married Nov. 20, 1939, at Ogden, Utah, to Venice Naomi Long.  The marriage was later solemnized in the Logan LDS Temple.
     He is survived by his wife, Venice of Middleton; a son and daughter-in-law, DeLloyd "Dee" and Judy Bowen; three daughters and sons-in-law, Janet and Paul Okamura, Margaret and Jeff Post and Debbie and Steve McCoy, all of Middleton.  He also helped raise Sherry Long Bailey of Sunset, Utah, and Fawn Long and Dorothy Thomas Garrison of Jerome.  Lloyd was proud of his family including 22 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.
     He was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters and two brothers.
     His life was his wife and family, his work and church.  He was a dedicated, honest loving person who cared.  To know him was to truly love his kindly influence.  His heart just gave out and his physical strength was gone.  He was ready to meet his maker.
