Dear Snyder family, I send my love and condolences. What great memories of your Dad, Mom, and all of you. We were neighbors on Morrell street right next door many years ago early 60’s. I will always remember the time Lloyd caught me driving the car back and forth on the driveway @ 12 years old and he would remind me every time I saw him in later yrs.You were so lucky to have such loving and caring parents. Your parents are together lovingly waltzing across heavens floor…….

Snyder family, so sorry for the loss of such a great man. I worked with Lloyd at Menasha and always thought he was such a hard worker and never failed to do his share among us younger guys! He was a power house when it came to changing clothing on the machines. It was a pleasure knowing you my friend, rest in Heavenly Peace!

Uncle Lloyd was one of the good men to have in one’s life. For my cousins he must have been great to have as a dad. For brother, my sister, myself, and all our other cousins we will always remember him as a good man to have as an uncle. It was always clear that he loved Aunt Margaret and his family. Like my dad, I think some of his personality was shaped by his service in the Korean War. When my folks visited several years ago, I was able to take them to see the Korean War Veteran’s Memorial, and we noted that they had a stone engraved just for those like Uncle Lloyd, wounded during that war.

For Kathy, Rodney, Bruce, and Tony, we will hold you in our thoughts.



July 7, 2020 at 8:11 pm

Bob, thank you for your prayers and thoughts. He was a great father and will be missed but imagine what a wonderful party is going on now.

So sorry to hear about your father, I had many great memories of him when I worked at the mill. Whenever I would do my rounds in the morning I would stop in and visit with your Dad. He always offered me candy from his supply. A good man with a kind heart. Wishing you all well as you deal with your grieving.

So sorry to just hear about Lloyd’s passing. I first met Lloyd at Menasha, where I got to know him prior to his retirement. I would then see him from time to time around town, especially when he served in the VFW Honor Guard. He was extremely friendly, always with a kind word and a smile on his face. Appreciate Lloyd’s service to his country, his years of employment with Menasha, and his positive impact on the local community. Thoughts and prayers to his family.
