William D. Lloyd 1943 - 2010
William D. “Pee Wee” Lloyd, of Dixon, Wyo., died July 29, 2010, at Sandrock Ridge Care & Rehab Center in Craig.
He was 66.
Pee Wee was born Dec. 8, 1943, in Waycross, Ga. He was the second youngest of 13 siblings.
Moving to the Baggs and Dixon area in 1995, he was known and admired by many for his carpentry skills. He shared these talents and knowledge willingly with others. For the majority of his years in the Little Snake River Valley, he appreciated his employment with Ty Kaisler and Paul Stanley.
Pee Wee was a veteran of the Armed Forces, proudly serving his country in the Vietnam War. He was a cowboy for all of his life; he loved the sport of rodeo, and was an accomplished bull rider in his own right.
Pee Wee is survived by his companion and sweetheart of 15 years, Billie “Bea” (Cook-Whitaker) Hutton, of Dixon, Wyo., as well as three children from his previous marriage: Daniel, David and Lindy.
He is also survived by eight sisters, two brothers and a large extended family that resides in or near Waycross. He was preceded in death by both of his parents, a sister and two brothers.
Pee Wee was buried, according to his wishes, at the foot of his mother’s grave in Waycross. This service was Aug. 5, 2010.
Joe Chancy, a lifelong friend and minister, presided over the services. A wake took place Aug. 4 in Waycross.
Pee Wee’s friends and family joined Bea in a celebration of his life Aug. 7 at Pete’s Meadow. The Rebekah Lodge provided lunch.
Bea asks that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Pee Wee’s memory to Grant Mortuary to help with burial expenses.
