I will always remember him as Rabbit. I worked with him for ten years at Monsanto and Bayer. He always had a good story to tell. He will always be missed.

I have known Lloyd for most of my life. Where he got the nickname "Rabbit" I don't know, to me he was always "Jughead" I guess from the old Archie comics. Jug and I were in scouts together with Dick Powell and that is where I met Lloyd Sr. also a really good man. Jug and I never were really that close later in life as we went to the service and raised our families. I was with him when he lost his dad and Cassandra. I will always have good memories of Jughead and cherish the friendship and times we shared. Remember that now he is with his dad and daughter in Heaven smiling and preparing a place for his family for when it is their time to join him. Ron & Bonnie Woodward
