Lloyd was born on May 15, 1946, in Decorah, Iowa, to Theodore (Ted) and Irene (Meyer) Feickert. He was drafted into the U.S. Army in December 1965, honorably discharged in December 1967, after serving one tour in Vietnam. Lloyd earned his GED while on active duty. Lloyd married Marsha Henkes on Jan. 18, 1969, in Farmersburg, Iowa. He worked in maintenance and instrumentation at ADM Corn Processing in Cedar Rapids for 41 1/2 years, retiring in 2012. In his free time, Lloyd enjoyed taking care of his yard, always having the nicest looking lawn in the neighborhood. He also enjoyed fishing, collecting tractors, being a "fix-it" man, telling a joke (good or bad), watching Hawkeyes football and men's basketball, and spending time with his family. He especially loved time spent with his granddaughters and watching them play softball. Lloyd and Marsha were snowbirds in Apache Junction, Ariz., for the last seven years. He was a member of Ascension Lutheran Church and American Legion Post 298 in Marion.
He is survived by his wife, Marsha; daughters, Treva (Keith) Menke and Trisha (Matt) Wymore; and granddaughters, Addison, Avery and Presley Menke.
