Darrell W. Lloyd of Lenoir, NC, after battling Parkenson’s Disease for over 10 years, passed away peaceably on May 3, 2021 at the age of 88. He was born in High Point, NC to Rebecca Ray and Troy Lloyd. Darrell served in the Army Field Artillery during the Korean Conflict and married the love of his life - Dorothy Spear in 1952. He graduated from Appalachian State University as Honor Marshal, Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Business Technology. Darrell worked for Bernhardt Furniture most of his life and retired after 37 ½ years with the company. He was a member at Zion United Church of Christ where he faithfully served as deacon, elder, president of the consistory, member of the choir, and Sunday school teacher. His love of art led him to carve wooden Welsh love spoons after retirement for which he won many awards. Darrell loved his beautiful bride, Dottie, of 68 years and together they raised 4 children. They loved living life together: hiking, camping and traveling but their greatest joy may be the countless hours they spent together serving and volunteering, always holding hands as they served together. Some of the organizations Darrell served with Dottie at were Caldwell Yokefellow, Care Foundation of Western North Carolina, Riddle Center, Red Cross Blood Drive, Lenoir Optimist Club, Community Music Club, Caldwell Men’s Chorus, and Caldwell Memorial Hospital.
