Donald G. Lloyd, 84, passed away Sunday, August 19, 2018.


He was born June 30, 1934, in Utica, son of the late Clarence and Beatrice (Baldwin) Lloyd.  He graduated from Waterville Central School and attended MVCC.  In 1959, he was married to Joyce Nolan.  They shared almost 60 years of love and friendship.  Don retired from General Electric and was the caretaker at Deansboro Cemetery for many years.  He was a Past Chief at Barton Hose Co. and a member of the Deansboro Congregational United Church of Christ.  If something was broken, he was like MacGuyver and would find a way to fix it.
