On December 2, 2013 God guided his loyal son, Myron Lloyd Buller, to his Heavenly Home. Lloyd died peacefully at his home in Northwest Houston, Texas at the age of 75 with his loving wife, Jo, and caregivers by his side. Lloyd was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend.
Born on February 2, 1938 in Goessel, Kansas, Lloyd was the youngest of nine children born to Lydia F. Schmidt and David D. Buller. The Buller family later moved to Peabody, Kansas, where Lloyd graduated from Peabody High School in 1958. The came Bethel College in North Newton, Kansas and a Bachelor of Science Degree in 1961. After the baccalaureate degree was Hayes, Kansas and a Master of Science Degree in 1964.
Lloyd was preceded in death by both parents, his oldest sister, Hilda Buller Regier, and his oldest brother, Raymond Buller. Lloyd leaves behind his wife, Jo Anne, daughter, Kristi Ann Buller, and grandson, Devaughn Buller, who he adored as "the apple of his eye". He also leaves behind six siblings: brother Harold and his wife Verna, sister, Elizabeth, brother, Wesley and his wife, Ruth, sister Pearl and her husband, Linferd, brother, Clarence and his wife, Martha and brother, Arlo and his wife, Ann. He also leaves a host of nieces and nephews.
Other survivors include his stepdaughter, Halli Riskus, her husband Troy and son, Shane as well as his stepson, John, all who reside in Rock Springs, Wyoming.
Lloyd enjoyed many successes in life after college. His outstanding athletic ability garnered him the job of football coach of The Lamar Lightweights Eagles at Lamar Junior High in Lamar, Colorado.
Lloyd fondly recalled his Dad reading the Scriptures for daily morning devotions at the breakfast table.
He was raised in the Mennonite Church and was a true believer that Joy, Peace and Celebration go hand-in-hand in helping others, and that Peace and Wholeness is a real possibility with the diverse and multi-cultural Mennonite Church.
The family will have a small, private ceremony at a later date. In lieu of customary remembrances, the family requests, with gratitude, that contributions be made in Lloyds memory to Odyssey Hospice, www.gentiva.com.
