He was born on May 20, 1929 in Gladstone, the son of Walter and Alma (Sebeck) Lessard. Lloyd was raised and attended school in Gladstone where he was a graduate of Gladstone High School. He began his working career in 1949 with the Michigan Army National Guard Gladstone Armory as the head mechanic and worked for 39 years until his retirement.
