He is also survived by siblings Carol D. Wilcox Hutchinson and Donn L. Wilcox.

Preceding him in death were his wife Hazel in 2001; son Vern A. Davis; siblings Fern C. Wilcox Denton, Ethelyn L. Wilcox passed as an infant, Faith D. Wilcox Davis, Frances M. Wilcox Feist and Keith L. Wilcox.

Per Lloyd’s request, a private memorial service will be held and inurnment will take place in Lower Valley Memorial Gardens in Sunnyside at a later date.

Lloyd was fond of saying “I have lived a good life and I had the best wife.”

  • Lloyd Wilcox was my uncle. He was helpful to our family as my mom was a widow at an early age with three children to raise. Although she worked very hard finances never seemed to stretch as far as they needed to. He, along with his brother, helped in that regard often. I will be forever thankful for that.

    God bless you Uncle Lloyd and may you rest in peace.

    Love, your niece, Elnie
