Born February 6th, 1946 in Hot Springs, Arkansas, Lloyd spent his youth playing sports, boys scouts, hunting, and fishing throughout the family farm in Jessieville, Arkansas.

Off the football field, Lloyd enjoyed playing the guitar and keyboard. Most notably joining fellow classmates as the keyboardist for The Techniques. Lloyd graduated from Hot Springs High School in 1964. In June of 1966, Lloyd joined the Army to serve his country during the Vietnam war.
