  1. Our caring thoughts and prayers to the family of John Lloyd Sr. better know to us all as “Father” Lloyd. John was a great City of Torrance employee and of course a very supportive dad while John Jr. and Deryl were involved with sports at Torrance High. It is an honor to have known him. Dee and Lowell Hardison

  2. I Fondly remember spending time with John Sr after meeting and becoming friends with John and Deryl. I will always remember those training trips to the river during High School, and John Sr\’s encouragement and presence during our competitions. He was truly an inspirational individual and will be missed. Our thoughts are with your family. Mark Hardison
