He was born June 27, 1936 in Chicago, IL, the son of the late Walter and Gladys Larsen. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his brother, Donald F. Larsen, of Aurora, Illinois and son Craig Steven Larsen.

Lloyd was a member of Mt. Olivet Lutheran Church for over 40 years where he sang in the Senior Choir and served as an usher. He served his country with the US Marine Corps and was Leader of Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps at NDSU in Fargo. Lloyd was honored as The Distinguished Military Student at the Summer Training Program at Fairchild Air Force Base in Spokane, Washington. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at North Dakota State University in Fargo where he was a quarterback with the Bison Football team. At NDSU he was Pledge Trainer for Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity, selected for Blue Key, and named to the 1958 “Who’s Who among Students in American Universities and Colleges.’” Lloyd went on to earn his Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA.

Lloyd’s career included engineering and executive positions at Dravo Corporation, Pittsburgh, PA; Merck, Sharp and Dohme Pharmaceutical Corp., Blue Bell, PA; Control Data Corporation, Northern Telecom, District Representative for Lutheran Brotherhood and Thrivent, Minneapolis.

Lloyd enjoyed success coaching 10 consecutive Edina Jr. football City Championships and Gold Division hockey in Edina, MN and served as President of the Edina Junior Football League and President of the Edina Athletic Boosters.

He is survived by his wife of more than 53 years, Carol R. Larsen of Edina MN; son, Lloyd Richard Larsen, Jr. (Cari), of Eden Prairie MN; daughter, Cory Lee Larsen (C.

Lloyd was deeply committed to his family, church, community service and his many financial services clients. He revered values expressed in “The True Gentleman” and conducted his life accordingly:

“The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will
and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all
emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty,
the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or
deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble
another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of
his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but
always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who
thinks of the rights and feelings of others rather than his own; and who
appears well in any company, a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue
John Walter Wayland, Virginia, 1899 – Sigma Alpha Epsilon

Lloyd’s life will be honored at Mt. Olivet Lutheran Church, at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, November 9, 2015 with visitation beginning at 10:00 a.m. Memorials may be directed to the Capital Campaign at Mt. Olivet Lutheran Church. 5025 Knox Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55419.
