Reed LLOYD Beloved husband, father, brother and friend, Reed died suddenly June 1,2003 after complications from a motorcycle accident. He was the rock that held our families together; we will miss him greatly. He was the most quietly decent, generous, honorable man that we will have the privilege of knowing. He could fix anything, and we always expected him to remain in that position in all of our lives. His Harry Truman-esque humor, eternal boyish good looks and ability to laugh at himself will be sorely missed. Reed was born September 28, 1942 in Malad, Idaho, the youngest of three boys to Elmer and Orilla Lloyd. He graduated from Brigham Young University in 1968 and was active in the Seattle banking community , most recently with The Commerce Bank. His tender love of his family, common sense, and quiet dignity will be examples for us to follow. Reed is survived by his wife, Melinda, his sons Chris (Rebecca) and Ryan (Jessie), his grandson Andrew, and his brothers Eldon (Mary Kay) and Ross (Alice). Memorial Services were held June 5 at the L.D.S. Church in Mercer Island.
