Lloyd was born in Piedmont, Texas on October 30, 1916, to Robert Mitchell and Nellie Duffie (Wright) Pool. He was the youngest of four children. No stranger to hard work and lean times, as a youngster he worked with his father on the farm, tending and herding cattle from grazing site to grazing site. He moved to Navasota to live temporarily with his aunt in order to complete his senior year of high school. He graduated from Navasota High School in 1934 while working several different jobs, among which were J. C. Penney. He proudly served our country in the U. S. Army and was honorably discharged in 1945. Upon his return home to Grimes County, he worked for the Navasota Police Department and then married the love of his life, Mary Sue Foerster in March of 1948. He worked with his brother at the Sinclair Service Station in Navasota and later moved to the Humble Service Station on LaSalle where he worked for many long and hard hours and he made many friends from the young men he hired there. He began his career at the Navasota Post office as a postal carrier and clerk where he retired after many years.
Lloyd was a member of the First Baptist Church where he served as a deacon, usher and a member of Adult 7 Sunday School Class. He served as a community volunteer fireman and was Fire Chief for almost 30 years. He was a member of Orphan’s Friend Lodge #17 A.F. & A.M. and on October 3rd of this year was presented his 70 year service award. He will be remembered as a quiet family man who was happiest tending his cows and spending time at his family home in the country spending time with his family and friends.
