Obituary Condolences

Lloyd Adams passed away on November 25, 2013. Born in Detroit, Michigan, Lloyd lived all over the world while working for the Department of Defense. He spent his last two years living near his daughter in Washington State. Lloyd retired from the U.S. Army as Lt. Colonel. During WWII, his Air Defense battalion was in the second landing at Omaha Beach. He went on to help free France and served in post-occupation Europe. He was awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. After retiring from the Army, Lloyd worked in U.S. Civil Service with DOD. During his many years of service, he and his family lived in El Paso, Oklahoma, Panama, Japan, Italy and Korea. El Paso was always his favorite, and he retired here in 1979. After returning to El Paso, Lloyd became an active volunteer, leading talk shows on Community TV, helping establish a new senior center in his area, and more. He was awarded the El Paso Senior Hall of Fame in recognition of his many contributions. He also was active in bowling and Senior Olympics. He loved life and made the most of it through his last years. Lloyd was a strong, yet sensitive man. He was most proud of being a wonderful father, raising four children, teaching great values and doing fun and educational things with each of them. His children value the wonderful role model he was and the wonderful experiences that he provided them. His children who survive him are Lloyd, Rod, Dee Dee and Randy. He has nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. His wife, Frances, predeceased him in 1997. His family will miss him deeply. Directed by CRESTVIEW FUNERAL HOME. 1462 N.
