Lloyd was born in Abbeville, La. to Lloyd Sr. and Wilma Daigle (Blanchet) on Jan. 25, 1950. He was the eldest of two children and attended Abbeville High School. He later attended Nashville Auto Diesel College and became a certified diesel mechanic. He worked a number of years in the oil field as a diesel mechanic. He then continued in the oil industry as an 18 wheeler driver. In 1985 he moved his family to Lake Sam Rayburn and opened his own outboard motor repair company. In addition, he transitioned into motorcycle repair and that is when he found his love of motorcycles. In 1988 he moved once again to Louise, where he owned, operated and became the primary cook at Porter Creek Hunting Club. After 10 years of cooking he decided it was time for a change and then he started his own Pilot Car Service which led him to travel the majority of the United States with his wife. He enjoyed the travel until his health deteriorated.
