  • My condolences to you and your family. R.I.P Mr. Lloyd. I got a few opportunities to meet your father and brothers and really respect the relationship you, your father, brothers and son have sharing a common love.

    It saddened me to see the news but I know your father is at rest and peace. Hang in there and know that you are a lucky man to have shared soo much with your father. The pain eventually subsides but never the love.

    Take care my good man.

  • Hawkstorian and Hawkster, I am so sorry for both of your losses and pray that peace finds you during these hard times. My Grandpa took the place my dad should have years ago, and when he passed away I lost a part of myself. Just know that we all are hear for you during these tough times and that you are a living legacy of your father. Physically, he may be gone, but he is with you forever.

  • John, I was truly saddened when I heard the news. I never had the privilege of meeting your father, but I am sure I saw a bit of him in you. Thank you for the past invitations to the Seahawkers dinners we used to go to down in Tacoma. Good memories for me, but no where near the memories I'm sure you shared with your father. My prayers are with you and your family in this difficult time. R.I.P Mr. Lloyd.

  • Sorry to hear the news John, but I'm glad you got to be with him and that he moved on watching the Hawks. I wouldn't mind going on to meet the Lord in that manner, especially with my kids by my side.

  • We (Seahawks.NET) dedicated today's win to him. It's nothing tangible, but hopefully it relay's the love we have for a fellow Seahawks fan and a good man. I was glad to have met and watched some games with you guys. Alicia & I send all our love.

    It reminds those of us who are dads just how important being a good dad is to our kids, and to never take them for granted. Hug your boys a little tighter tonight brother.

  • Condolences to you and your family. I don't know you personally but certainly know the Hawkstorian on here as one of the main players.

    Don't know much about your Dad either but he must have been a good Dad it sounds like.

    RIP dad.....

  • Condolences, John. I met your dad a couple of times at Temple and loved how you and your brother interacted with him.

    Good shows. He was a good man.

    Best wishes.

  • God Bless your family. I lost my dad a while back and he was my best friend, but I know he is still with me. I still try to do things that would make him proud and constantly lean on the life lessons that he taught me.

    I'm glad you were able to be there for him, and through my own experiences since my father's passing, I know that he will always be there for you.

    I am so sorry for your losses, my deepest condolences to you both.

    I can't imagine the pain you and your families are experiencing tonight, but I hope everyone's words here can help somewhat as you mourn. I pray they both travel well.

    Godspeed to your fathers, to you both, and your families.

  • We don't know each other but I am very sincere in saying I am sorry for the loss of your father. It is sad he, like my Gramps, never got to see this team (technically) win it all.

    It is imperative this team wins a championship sooner than later.

  • John, we've never met, but, through reading posts from you and about you, I can gather that you are a good man who was raised by a another good man.

    I reckon there will be a flood of memories to come, and I wish you god's speed through it all.

    May your father rest in peace.

    To hear that he passed while watching the game with family and seeing indications that the team is in good hands is enough to make me feel God could have had a hand in it.

  • What a blessing to have entered into his reward with his family at his side while occupied with a beloved activity! It sure seems like The Father ordained blessing for your father to the very end.
    Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

It's been 4 years since I lost my dad and I still miss him every single day. Our fathers make us the men we are, and I'm always grateful to my dad for his influence on my life.

  • Our prayers for you and your family. While I did not know your dad I can see by the comments here from others he was a stand up guy. The better the person the harder it is on the loved ones when they pass, your pain must be deep. My father has been gone 20 years now and to this day I remember all the big and little things he taught me and so shall you.

  • I feel for you, John. Grief is a helluva thing to go through, and it tends to be a little worse when the loss is sudden.

    However, like you, I believe that many coincidences are more than mere coincidences, that many show signs of divine intervention or manipulation. And as an ardent Seahawks fan, I can think of few ways to go that would be better than watching the Seahawks win a game while in the company of those I love. I never met your dad, but I think it is entirely possible that this is the way he would have chosen to depart this earth if given the choice.

    I hope you can find some comfort in this.

  • Extending my sincerest condolences to you and your family.
    Feel free to contact me if you need legal assistance. I have a great lawyer that helped me with an ex who violated my privacy and kept harassing me on MySpace and Facebook. He's very good. And there is legal precedent. - linuxpro

  • My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, John.

    Cherish the many wonderful memories you`ve got and it sounds like you've got too many to count which says everything about your dad.

    One day at a time...
