Thomas C. Lloyd - Obituary


ommy was a kind, humble, funny, loving, and generous man. Who would do anything for anybody. He never met a stranger, always there to lend a helping hand. Offering “whatever you need” and meaning it! He truly had a heart of gold. He made a difference in the lives of so many, knowing a simple kind word could have an impact. If you were a little grumpy or cold, he would “kill you with kindness” until you smiled and all that soon melted away. Whether a doctor, nurse, dietary aide, or housekeeper, he treated you the same. With a smile and a level of kindness that made you feel special. No one loved a Lloyd Family vacay more than Tommy did. He never tired of Ocean City and visited there several times a year. He enjoyed Maryland crabs, a bucket of cold Coors Lights, an ear of corn on the cob sprinkled with Old Bay, and some good conversation and laughs with family. He loved country music, especially Craig Morgan, Garth Brooks, Tracey Lawrence, Hal Ketchum, Brooks & Dunn, and Randy Travis. He enjoyed karaoke or just an old-fashioned sing-along, where he always asked someone to ‘bring up the words.” No microphone available? No problem! A Coors Light long-neck bottle would suffice just fine! Tommy was a diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan and enjoyed watching the games with his family. He also enjoyed a competitive game of checkers, playing Happy Family (where he was Judith Sheindlin, AKA “Judge Judy”), and a few rounds of PIG, where he would always say “Get your scratches out” and of course, he was the announcer of “down, ‘round, pass.” Everyone loved a good “Tommy Lloyd-ism”. Here are a few: Doesn’t hurt to ask Kill ‘em with kindness Whatcha got good? Got a job for ya You got more money than anybody I know You got the life don’t ya? Tommy adored his wife Dianna and his girls Kayla and Grace. He was so very proud of them. They enjoyed watching Wheel of Fortune, Scooby Doo, Tom and Jerry (Is you Is), FBI, and he loved to indulge Di in a good “chick movie,” where he would always shed a tear. He loved to quote his favorite movies, always making people laugh. He loved to quote Rocky and Caddyshack, the classics. He always had a job for the girls; getting a cold Diet Pepsi, or “orange drink,” putting insurance cards in the glove box, handling online transactions, and picking up IHOP after appointments. Of course, like most dads, he kept a running list of what they “owed him.” He was happy to welcome Kayla and Grace’s girlfriends, Merry and Jessie, into the family. He loved them and thought the world of them. You can’t pick your siblings. How lucky he was to have three sisters that adored him. He talked to all three of them every day, sometimes multiple times a day. They recently learned how to have a four-way call. After their parents passed away, they grew closer, continued to support each other, and enjoyed spending time together. Tommy had a special place in his heart for all of his nieces and nephews, always making sure to attend events that were important to them and share in their joy. It made him so happy. He enjoyed spending time with his cousins; laughing about the “old days” and making new memories. So much more than a father-in-law, his BFF Ben Hamrick (AKA Grandad), taught him how to “really” play checkers. So good, in fact, that Grandad could hardly beat him anymore. Along with checkers, they enjoyed an ice cream cone on the boardwalk, a cold Coors Light, a slice of Grandad’s apple pie, Thursday night dinners, and Applebees; where they always got the exact same thing. This is just a glimpse into the man Tommy Lloyd was. A blessing and a gift to all. Our treasured memories of Tommy will live on in our hearts forever. Tommy’s last gift to the world was the donation of his corneas. Because of his selfless decision, he will forever be remembered as a hero and has made a profound difference in someone’s life. Family and friends are invited to celebrate Tommy's life on Thursday, November 9 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. at the Kalas Funeral Home & Crematory, 2973 Solomons Island Rd., Edgewater, MD 21037. A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Friday, November 10, 2023, at 1 p.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help, 515 Loch Haven Road, Edgewater, MD 21037.
