Richard Kimball Lloyd

Richard Kimball Lloyd 7/25/72 ~ 4/25/08 Richard Kimball Lloyd, a loving and gifted husband, father, brother, son, and friend returned to his Heavenly Father on Friday, April 25, 2008, after a courageous and inspiring battle with brain cancer. Rich was born July 25, l972, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Kimball and Elaine Lloyd. He graduated from Skyline High School and the University of Utah, where he gave his class commencement address in 1996. He met his sweetheart, Marianne Monson, on a study abroad program in Jerusalem in 1994. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple on March 20, 1997, and were blessed with three wonderful sons, David (8), James (6), and Joshua (3). Shortly after their marriage, they moved to Boston, where Rich attended Harvard Business School. After graduating with honors in 1999, Rich and Marianne moved to Austin, Texas, where Rich worked for Dell. In 2006, Rich left his position as Director of Global Marketing at Dell to begin his dream job as President and Chief Operating Officer of Peruvian Connection in Tonganoxie, Kansas. Everywhere they lived, Rich and Marianne easily made life-long friends who have continued to love and support them throughout this difficult year. Rich certainly lived his own creed: "Life is about people, not about things." His recent battle with cancer taught us what it means to "Live Rich." Rich loved his service as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Trinidad and Tobago from 1991-1993. He was a dedicated member of the church throughout his life, serving as elders quorum president, early morning seminary teacher, and most recently, as a member of the High Council of the Lenexa, Kansas Stake. He cherished his time spent working with the youth of the church and was always a missionary and ambassador of the gospel. Rich was a talented pianist, often composing and arranging musical numbers that brought great joy and inspiration to many. His love of life and valiant testimony were reflected in his spirited music. Rich also loved sports and passed this passion on to his sons. One of his greatest joys was playing ball with his boys. He was an avid University of Utah fan, but also learned to love the Boston Red Sox, Texas Longhorns, and Kansas Jayhawks. Unquestionably, Rich's greatest passion in life was loving and serving his family and his Savior. He is survived by his wife and three sons; parents; siblings, Lisa (John Paul) Giles, Emily (Blair) Allen, Randall, Alison (Peter) Theurer, and Nathan; in-laws, David and Julie Monson and family, Dave, Traci, Kari, and Smith; grandmother, Florence Randall; three nephews; three nieces; and many extended family members and friends. His family wishes to express heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Michael Glantz and the caring, compassionate staff at the Huntsman Cancer Hospital. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Lloyd Children Missionary and Education Fund through any Wells Fargo Bank. Funeral services for Richard will be held on Wednesday, April 30, 2008, at 12:00 Noon at the Olympus Stake Center, 4500 South 2700 East. Family and friends are invited to call on Tuesday evening from 6 - 8 p.m. at the Larkin Mortuary, 260 East South Temple, Salt Lake City, Utah, and at the church on Wednesday morning from 10:30-11:30 a.m. prior to the services.
