Army Staff Sgt. David L. Loyd was called up for deployment to the Middle East in February but returned home for 10 days this spring because his home in Jackson, Tenn., was damaged by a tornado. When it came time for his return to Kuwait, he was eager to get back to serving his country, his wife, Pamela, said. "He wouldn''t have had it any other way," she said. A member of the Tennessee National Guard, the 44-year-old Loyd died Aug. 5 of a heart attack in Kuwait. He is also survived by two sons. Family members say Loyd enjoyed working as a truck mechanic and spent his spare time riding his Harley Davidson and tinkering with cars. "But most of all he loved serving his country," said his mother-in-law, Bonnie Flinn, of Terre Haute, Ind., where the Loyds both grew up.
