There is not a neighborhood in the Kansas City proper that does not have his and his son’s special touch. He and his son were and are THE Brick and Stone Masons of Kansas City!
Lloyd had many passions in his life outside of Two on top of one and one on top of two, he also was known in the Racing Pigeon community of Kansas City and the President for many years of the MO-Kan Combine as well as the IMOI Racing Pigeon club. He was also an avid Auctioneer that was well known within its community as well. He graduated from Auctioneering School by reciting the tongue twisters of "Betty bought a bit of butter" and "How much wood could a woodchuck chuck".
Lloyd was a Bricklaying Auctioneering pigeon flyer type of guy!
