William H. Lloyd

VOORHEESVILLE — William H. Lloyd, 82, passed away Nov. 16, 2013, at Daughters of Sarah Nursing Home, Albany, with his loving family by his side. William (Bill) was born Sept. 18, 1931, in Albany, to Kenneth and Emily (Driggs) Lloyd.

He graduated from Albany High School and Hudson Valley Community College, where he was first in his class, earning an associate's degree in mechanical engineering.

On Feb. 2, 1953, he married the love of his life, Marilyn Skicki. Bill left immediately for Korea and spent a year serving his country, a duty he was always very proud of.

Bill spent most of his career as an employee of the Delaware and Hudson Railroad. The Lloyd family moved with Bill's various positions within the company. They began in Albany, moved on to Voorheesville, Willsboro, Unadilla, Oneonta and finally back to Voorheesville, where they have lived for the past 42 years. Fearing a family uprising when leaving Willsboro, Bill bought property on the lake and built a camp, which remains the "summer home base" for the Lloyd family today. He retired in 1993 as Vice President of Operations of the New York Susquehanna and Western Railroad.

Bill enjoyed reading and fishing, passing this love on to several of his grandchildren. He also took his civic responsibility very seriously and always worked to serve others. He was a man who took great pleasure in helping others and always doing the right thing. He helped each of his children renovate or build their homes as they started their own families. In retirement, Bill enjoyed following the athletic careers of several of his grandchildren, often driving great distances to attend contests.

Bill is survived by his wife, Marilyn; his children, William Jr. (Cam), Robin Belzile, Lynn Ann McNaughton, and Sharon (Michael) Conroy; eight grandchildren, Lauryn, Macky, and Rolly Lloyd, Joseph (Margot) and Evan Belzile, Ian McNaughton, and Olivia and Aidan Conroy.
