Lloyd H. Card Jr. passed away on May 6th at his home in Bethlehem at the age of 83, surrounded by his loving wife and family. Born in Coventry, Rhode Island on November 8th, 1939, to Father Lloyd H. Card Sr. and Mother Mary (Rhodes) Cole. Lloyd graduated from Coventry High School in Rhode Island, and then enlisted in the U.S. Army where he was stationed in Europe for four years. After his completion of service, he returned to Rhode Island and worked as the production manager for Hoechst Chemical Corporation for the next 27 years. Lloyd took an early retirement from Hoechst and relocated to Sugar Hill, New Hampshire with his family. Lloyd adored the beauty and quietness of the area. He went on to work for the town of Sugar Hill where he maintained the town buildings, landscapes, and the beautiful Sunnyside Cemetery. The Sunnyside Cemetery was Lloyd's pride and joy. His passion for the cemetery was well known by his family and those of the town. His grandchildren have fond memories of spending many afternoons with their grandfather where they shared picnic lunches and learned how to ride bikes. One of his favorite town duties was to wind the clock at the Sugar Hill Meeting House. Following his retirement from the town, he and Ellie moved to Rotonda West, Florida where they met a wonderful group of friends and were involved in many community activities. Lloyd is remembered for many things and one of those being his talent in woodworking. Another passion in Lloyd’s life was sports, specifically watching and coaching young athletes, especially baseball, softball, and basketball. He was an avid fan at local schools, especially during basketball seasons.
There will be a private graveside service for Lloyd with his beloved family at the Sunnyside Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Jude Medical Center, one of his favorite charities. Donations may also be made to North Country Home Health and Hospice. 536 Cottage Street, Littleton, NH 03561 https://northcountryhomehealth-hospice.org/donate/ . The family would like to thank NCHH for the care and support they provided.
