In loving memory of our wonderful Dad who sadly passed away on 19th May 2020

Words cannot express the sadness we feel; that it was too early to say goodbye. He was always so full of fun and life. Dad always loved his golf and if he didn’t have his golf then he didn’t have a life (if you knew him well then you know this much).

We didn’t have to waste our last moments spent saying things we never said. We were always amazingly close and therefore always said what we needed to say. Dad never judged us and we always had genuine love, openness and closeness with him; we will miss him so so much.

We want to remember our Dad with love and humour as this would have been what he wanted.

We would ask that please no flowers or donations we will be arranging Family flowers.

He will be in our hearts forever.

Zoe & Amy xxx

Our family first met Lloyd in the 1980’s when he ran his grocery shop in Portsmouth and we had our sweet shop round the corner
He became a treasured friend over the years. Kind, supportive, a very funny man always making jokes and his funny faces. Also a wonderful friend and golfing buddy to my dad George
RIP Lloyd you will be deeply missed

Dear Zoe & Amy, sorry to hear about your dad. I first met him in 1952 when my parents brought a house in Avonwick Rd. Hounslow. The day we moved in all the local kids came knocking at the door asking if my brother and I could go and play. Your dad and I got on well despite there being a 4 year gap between us, going out several nights in the week with a number of other guys and even had our first holiday abroad together in Majorca in 1967. Unfortunately our lives took us apart in the early 70's but we did meet up occasionally. Regret it was not more frequent. RIP Lloyd

I just want to thank you Lloyd for being part of my life two guys have never laughed as much as we did on that golf course. You lost your glasses in the bushes on the 5th and we searched forever A week later you hit a ball to the same place. We didn’t find it but we found your glasses Thanks for all the fun dear pal. See you soon Mr Platt

I only knew you for a few years,unfortunately not as long as others had known you, but those years are full of lovely memories to last forever. Walks into town, popping in for a chat, standing outside your door with a meal I'd cooked for you, bluebell woods, socials at Tivvy Court, and you're wicked sense of humour, you so made me laugh. Especially when helping me build a flat pack wardrobe in my lounge, it wouldn't go through my bedroom door! And that lovely bush outside your flat that you fell into taking a short cut across the garden, leaving a big hole where you fell. You swore me to secrecy, not to tell David it was you, he'll know now Lloyd. We laughed about that many many times. There's a big void in my life now, and I'll always miss you. You live on in happy memories. Catch up with you sometime in the future Lloyd, but remember to get off that "Heavenly Golf Course" and come and meet me. My thoughts are with you Zoey and Amy, you had an amazing dad. 🏌

Myself and Lloyd go back many years, approximately since the mid fifties. I lived with him for a couple of years when he lived in Stanwell. We have played golf together, snooker together and ten pin bowling together and he nearly always beat me at all three. He was a very good sportsman.
Once he had an accident with his mother in his car. She broke her wrist and he called me from Ruislip hospital. There was a very bad snow storm that night. I got to the hospital eventually after being trapped in the snow a few times and got him and his mother back home. On the way home I told them of the problems I had had getting there and his mother who was a very religious lady said that perhaps I had some help, that left me speechless.
Lloyd was a very good and loyal friend with a great sense of humour and he will be sadly missed. Rest in Peace Lloyd. Love Bryan.

Dear Zoe and Amy, I met your Dad in 1966. He was one of a group of lads including my now husband Bryan. We all used to meet up and go to parties together on a Saturday night. At the time he, Bryan and Clive were serious ten pin bowlers. I felt a bit of a groupie tagging along watching them play. When Bryan moved in with your Dad, I used to go over to the Stanwell house and usually ended up doing their ironing! Lloyd was a fast driver a smart dresser and quite a ladies man. I think though I was the only lady to catch him in his hillbilly long johns. Something he wore to keep him warm when he worked in the winter. It was a sight to behold. A couple of years ago he turned up at our home. He had a lovely mushroom omelette sitting in the garden on a warm summer day. The last time we spoke was a couple of months ago. He phoned and I could tell he was very very poorly. He did not want my husband to phone him, saying he would phone when he felt well enough. I felt then it might be the last time we would speak. I said ok and told him, I loved him. They were my last words to him and I am grateful to have had the chance to say them. He was a good friend. RIP Lloyd.

Zoe and Amy,I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad and my Friend Lloyd of 70 plus years.We grew up together in the 1940/1950's both at school and Sunday school.
After school,weekends,and holidays along with other local friends,we would gather at Lloyd's house and play for hours using the outside wall of the coal bunker for the goal for football,we also played Tin Can A Lerki,Knock Down Ginger and other Cheeky Games,We also went Swimming,and played Snooker sometimes with Pops (Lloyd's name for his Dad)
Later years after leaving school we shared many holidays together at places like Butlins.
Lloyd in later years spent some time in Australia visiting Jen (His Sister and Family),but we have always kept in touch by phone,with the occasional meet up despite a distance between us.Iwas due to go with Bryan to see Lloyd in April which unfortunately had to be cancelled due to Lockdown.
R.I.P. Lloyd Your Mum is waiting for you
