Larry Lloyd

Mr. Larry Lloyd, 73, of Peachtree City, died Nov. 23, 2008, after a long struggle with Lou Gehrig's disease.

He is survived by his wife, Anita; stepson, Keith George Baron Stewart; brothers Ronald and Delores Lloyd, of McDonough, David and Donna Lloyd, and Steve and Mary Lloyd, of Palmetto.

Mr. Lloyd was a Korean War veteran with the United States Navy. He later served as assistant to Gov. Carl Sanders and worked in both his election campaigns. He was the "advance man" for President Lyndon Johnson's campaign as well as Gov. Lester Maddox's Advisory Committee.

Larry was well known under the Gold Dome, as he had been an integral part of the Capitol's inner workings for many decades. He was truly a servant to the people, always working for the betterment of Georgia.

He worked as an aide to former State Sen. Terrell Starr, the President Pro Tempore of the Senate and was famous for his ability to provide assistance for legislators, senators, and staff during hectic legislative sessions. His wisdom and experience led Lt. Govs. Pierre Howard, Mark Taylor, and Casey Cagle to depend on him for advice.

His love for golf was exhibited as he became a founding member of the Cannongate Golf Country Club. He was proud of fact that he had a zero handicap for 30 years, as well as having 18 "holes-in-one."

Funeral services will be held Wednesday, Nov. 26, at 1 p.m., at the Peachtree City United Methodist Church, with remains placed in-state at noon. Pastor Herzen Andone will officiate. Burial will follow at Westminster Memorial Gardens.

The family will receive friends Tuesday, from 4 p.m., to 8 p.m., at the funeral home. Carl J Mowell & Son, Fayetteville - www.mowellfuneralhome.com.
