Lloyd Harvey Flood Obituary
Lloyd Harvey Flood, 89, passed away at his home Saturday, Nov. 30, 2013, with his wife of 70 years, Geraldine, by his side. Memorial service: 11 a.m. Wednesday at Agape Baptist Church, 3900 Southwest Blvd., Fort Worth, 817-923-6800. Lloyd was born Aug. 21, 1924, in Oklahoma City, Okla., and was the son of Harvey and Norma Chism Flood. He met his wife, Geraldine, at a church picnic while they were still in high school. The year 1942 brought many changes: He married his sweetheart, went to work for Montgomery Ward, joined the U.S. Navy and headed off to war at the age of 18. After three years in the South Pacific, he was eager to return to his wife, his family and a country at peace. His dedication to God, his family, his country and his community guided him throughout his life. All were blessed by his life and service. His career with Montgomery Ward spanned 35 years and countless cities from San Antonio to San Francisco, Calif., to his beloved Fort Worth in 1970 as the manager of all of the company's stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. In the 1980s he started numerous entrepreneurial ventures, one of which was OFCO Office Furniture, founded in 1986 with his friends and partners, A.H. Lock and Earl Cox III, who shared his passion for both business and Fort Worth. A deacon in the Baptist church and community leader throughout his lifetime, he was president, chairman or director of organizations ranging from hospital boards to the Better Business Bureau, the Boy Scouts of America, the Salvation Army and many, many more. Survivors: Wife, Geraldine Margaret; cousin, Jay Chism; children, Lynnette Johnson, Collin Flood and wife, Gwen, Linda Grisham and husband, Jeff, and Leeann Veatch and husband, John; grandchildren, Justin Johnson, David Johnson, Stacy Lanier, Jeff Flood and wife, Tammy, Keesha Broome, Britton Flood, Caroline Veatch and Jeb Veatch. He was blessed with six great-grandchildren, Jackson and Colton Lanier, and Jacob, Lucas, Eli and Liam Flood, with a seventh on the way.
