On May 23, 1953 Lloyd and Nancy married at St. Mary & St. Joseph Catholic church. Lloyd was stationed on the East Coast for 13 years where their family grew to include five children. They moved back to their hometown of Iron Mountain and purchased and operated The Iron Mountain Machine Shop and started Tazer Manufacturing. Nancy enrolled in community college to learn bookkeeping for the businesses, which they operated together for almost 50 years.

They both loved traveling and had the opportunity to travel to Europe, Asia, Hawaii, and throughout the United States. Nancy was an excellent seamstress and shared her talents as a 4-H leader. She loved to knit and bake, especially with the apples from her orchard. She also loved reading, playing games, bird watching and gardening.

Lloyd was a skilled precision metal machinist and master craftsman. One of the last projects Lloyd was instrumental in completing was the WWII Waco CG-4 glider, that was mass produced at the Kingsford Ford Motor Plant, currently on display in Iron Mountain, MI.

He spent many years fishing the great lakes on his boats. He was an excellent marksman and shared his outdoor passions with his family, teaching them the skills of hunting. He enjoyed many other hobbies throughout his life such as wood carving, model building and RC planes to name but a few. Lloyd served on the American Welding Society and was instrumental in teaching welding to his grandsons Alex & Anthony, as well as many other young men & women.
