William Thomas Lloyd
William Thomas (Bill) Lloyd passed away peacefully on Sept. 25, 2016 at his home in Pioche, Nevada, after battling Multiple Myeloma. Bill was born Oct. 22, 1934 in Pioche to Daniel Lloyd and Lucretia Condie Lloyd.
Bill attended grade school in Pioche and went on to high school in Panaca. As a senior, Bill drove the high school bus. He loved sports in high school and was one of the fastest runners with a reputation for being able to run forever. Bill went into the Navy after one and a half years in college, where he received training to be a weatherman. Bill was also a well reputed boxer during his time in the Navy. After being discharged from the Navy, he went to work at the Nevada Test Site as a weatherman.
Bill married the love of his life, Mary Geneve Pectol, on June 6, 1960, and they were blessed with five wonderful children.
Bill loved the outdoors, including hunting, fishing, bottle and treasure hunting. Bill even played slow pitch well into his 70s. He spent his entire adult life giving service to others. He coached little league baseball, kids basketball, and umpired whenever asked. Anything Bill could do to help kids advance and grow, he was sure to do. Many nights Bill could be found helping not only his own children with their homework, but many of the neighborhood kids as well. With all of the tutoring he did, we’re pretty sure he graduated from high school dozens of times.
Bill had a deep love for the people of Lincoln County and it was one of his greatest honors to have served them as County Assessor for 40 years and 4 years as a Commissioner. He loved to go out assessing so he could visit the people of the County. Bill was a volunteer with the fire department and ambulance for 40 years, a member of the town board for many years, and he served in the American Legion for 50 years.
Bill is survived by his sweet wife Mary, their children Toni (Leland), Donnie (Kristina), Mark (Gina), Teresa, and Danny (Lisa), their 13 grandchildren, and 3 great grandchildren.
Bill is preceded in death by his father Daniel, his mother Lucretia, and his brother Frank.
Funeral services were held on Oct. 1, 2016 at the LDS church in Pioche.
