Following their marriage, Lloyd and Jean moved to Orange where he began a long career with DuPont Sabine River Works. He retired in December 1982, following 36 years of dedicated service.
Lloyd was a U.S. Army veteran of WWII where he served in the European Theater. He was an active member of First Baptist Church in Orange and a member of the Fellowship Men?s Bible Class. He was a long time member of the Orange Lion?s Club and was honored to have been twice selected Lion of the Year. He also enjoyed time spent drinking coffee and visiting with the members of the Kroger Coffee Club.
Preceded in death by his parents, Lawrence and Clara Sittig and sister, Alva Osbon, Lloyd is survived by his wife of 64 years, Jean Sittig of Orange; son and daughter-in-law, Dr. L.
