Lloyd Lacer
Lloyd served 4 years in the United States Army during World War II in the South Pacific theater
returning to a long and varied working life which included employment in the petroleum industry in oil production facilities in Libya and the Middle East. In 1985 Lloyd retired after a lengthy employment at the Hercules Ammunition Plant in DeSoto, Kansas and used his “retirement” years raising cattle, helping neighbors with farming chores and sharing life with his wife, Rowena. Lloyd enjoyed gathering with family and friends in the Baldwin community at the local feed store or pubs telling entertaining “true” stories and sharing bets on the latest sporting events. He considered
everyone a friend and if for some reason a wire got crossed, he usually figured out a way to set it straight.
Rowena would like to communicate her gratefulness for all the friends and relatives who attended Lloyd’s last birthday celebration in August and how much Lloyd appreciated that time.
A private gathering of family and close friends is planned at the Lacer home in Baldwin October 19-21.
A public memorial service is scheduled for October 28, 2017, at 1:00 pm at Oakwood Cemetery in Baldwin City, Kansas. Opportunity after the service has been made for guests to share memories and condolences.
