Lloyd and I lived in the same community, knew each other since the 8th grade, loved the same girl.  He had a quick wit and a ready smile.  He was a bit mischievous.  He and his brother loved chemistry, made many trips to Scientific Supply in Seattle, and liked making bombsfrown( They enjoyed fishing using thier bombs).  Bruce Robertson gave me a nickname in Jr. Hi. and Lloyd continued to call me by it even as adults.  He was a good athlete and started lifting weights in high school and bulked up about 50 lbs and grew 4 inches in his Junior year.  He converted the basement into his  lifting studio and  taught some of us the techniques in lifting weights  .Lloyd lifted competitively as a heavey weight at the university.  He married, had 2 sons, and passed away much too soon at 41 years old.  We"ll see you again in heaven old friend.

Thanks for your comment, Craig. Now I feel a whole lot better about Loyd's beating my school record in the bent arm pullover event--about a half hour after I set it. But it was hard to be upset about Lloyd--he was such a nice guy.

BTW, Craig, what was the nickname?
