Lloyd Irvin OXLEY was born April 13, 1923, in Ross Township, near Bedford, Iowa the son of Ethan Irvin OXLEY and Minnie Belle (GUTHRIE) NOWELS OXLEY. He grew up attending school at Ross Township No. 5. Lloyd's father died when he was only 11, so he had to grow up at an early age, and take over the family farm operation. On May 5, 1945, he was united in marriage to Leona WOLDRUFF in Bedford. The couple continued to farm until 1972, when he and Leona moved to Odebolt, Iowa to work at a cattle ranch and feedlot as a ranch hand. He also worked in Grand River, and Guthrie Center, Iowa and Minatare, Nebraska and Hannibal, Missouri. In 1985, upon his retirement, they moved to Mount Ayr where they continued to live until his death.

Horses were his passion and life. He rode and broke horses often for other people and enjoyed spending time working with tack and saddles. He loved being around his family and was always joking with his grandkids, or just about anybody. After he retired, he liked watching his son Steve working on tractors. He and Leona would travel locally to country music shows in the area. He enjoyed playing cards, with 10-point pitch being his favorite game, and was lucky quite often!

Left to cherish Lloyd's memory are his loving wife of over 60 years, Leona OXLEY of Mount Ayr; two sons, Carrol OXLEY and wife Marilyn [WISEMAN] of Clarinda; and Steven OXLEY and wife Carol Lea of Mount Ayr; a granddaughter Nicole; a step-granddaughter Lori; two step-grandsons, Rick and Randy; nine great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.

Preceding Lloyd in death were his parents and two half-sisters, Mildred SMITH and Wilma MAJORS.

May God grant comfort and strength to those who mourn Lloyd's passing.
