Lloyd Tatman Obituary
Lloyd Tatman of Longmont died October 25, 2012 at his home, following a brief and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 69. Lloyd was born on February 13, 1943 in North Platte, Nebraska to Lloyd and Ruth Tatman. He graduated from North Platte High School in 1961. Lloyd enjoyed working with his hands and developed excellent wood working skills. He began a career in construction following high school. He worked in North Platte a number of years, before moving to Colorado in the late 1960's where he joined the Carpenter's Union. He later went to work for the University of Colorado in the housing department, where he worked until retirement in 2005. He continued to use his carpentry skills, taking great pride in remodeling his homes. Work was a secondary to his priority, which was fun and adventure. He loved taking vacations with his entire family, enjoying places like Lake Powell, the mountains, Phoenix, and beaches. He was an avid golfer who also loved boating, camping, skiing and scuba diving. He was a member of the Twin Peaks Men's Club and a volunteer at the course. Competitive by nature he enjoyed tournaments and friendly games with his friends and peers. Surviving are his wife Sue, whom he married in 1992; a son Brad (Michelle) Tatman of Gilbert, Arizona; two daughters Leesa (Roger) Zimbleman of Eden, North Carolina and Mikayla Tatman of Fort Collins; three brothers Gary (Bette) Tatman of North Platte; Bob (Netta) Tatman of Boulder; and Pete (Martha) Tatman of Kansas City; and four grandchildren Shane and Megan Tatman and Jake and Seth Zimbleman.
