    I worked with Lloyd at Engineered Systems back in the 70’s and we became really close friends. We use to hang out a lot for many years, but as time goes on those occasions happen less and less. He called me a couple times over the years and we were going to get together and have a couple beers, but we never got the job done. When I seen this notice it hit me like a ton of bricks. He was a very, very proud Marine, and his military service in Vietnam was a huge part of his life. Rest in peace my friend, and we will get together at some point in the future, I promise. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends. Jim

    So sorry for the families loss. When cousins pass away, especially only a few years older, you realize how short life is. Going to the Grote farm growing up was one of my favorite childhood memories. Llyod was always a nice guy. God bless his family & keep them safe.

    So sorry to hear of Lloyd’s passing. As one of my older first cousins, he set an example for us younger ones. His military service during difficult times showed his commitment to the nation. My adult interaction was at family reunions. During his radiology equipment service time, we met when he did service at the Fremont hospital. Was always glad to have him on the service call. Again prayers to the family on Lloyd’s passing.

    My sincere condolences to the Grote family. Not only are we from the same little town of Portsmouth, Iowa but Lloyd and I spent many years working together at Picker International. We used to have some really good laughs together. He was a great Field Service Engineer and was a proud United States Marine and Viet Nam veteran. A tough Iowa farm kid with a heart of gold! I was shocked to hear of his passing! He will be missed! Rest In Peace old friend!

    So sorry to hear of Lloyds passing. I enjoyed working with Lloyd many years at Picker and learned much about life and work thru him. He was always respected by the team and our customers. His name still comes up often at work because of the respect we all had for him. Our prayers are with you and your loved ones as you experience a great loss. Jim and Deb Mead

    Our family would like to extend our condolences to Lloyd’s family and siblings.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. ✝️ Family of Harold and Monica Kleffman

    I worked with Lloyd at Picker from 1983 until his retirement. One of the smartest service techs ever, never a complainer about anything.

    A best friend and truly a good man, gone
