Obituary

The world and Braxton County were blessed to have 98 years with Charles Russell Lloyd. Charles left this world to be with the Lord of November 3, 2020, just short of his 99th birthday. He was born December 6, 1921 in Ohio, but raised in Exchange, West Virginia. He was preceded in death by his parents O.J. and Sarah Lloyd, his two children Cheryl Delp and Doug Lloyd, and their mother Kathleen Lloyd. He is survived by his loving wife Shirley Ann Singleton Lloyd of Flatwoods, his devoted sons Charles “Chuck” Lloyd II and his wife Karla of Flatwoods, and Greg Lloyd and Betty Taylor of Flatwoods, and his loving and cherished daughter Sharon Kathleen Lloyd. Charles is also survived by stepchildren Linda Leggett and Rick of Burnsville and Donald Conrad and Donna of Flatwoods. He is survived by his granddaughters Alexis Nicole Clark (Chris) of Riverside, CA, Amanda Hapney (Josh) of Eleanor, Amelia Daniels (Brandon) of Beckley and Laurel Lloyd of Flatwoods. He is also survived by step granddaughters Shalee Nottingham (Stoney) of Burnsville, Erin Barnhart (Clayton) of Grantsville and Bridgett Carson (Nickolas) of Flatwoods, and step grandsons Mitchell Leggett of Normantown, Daniel Smith (Kristin) of Glenville, Andrew Smith (Marybeth) of Gassaway and Justin Conrad (Stephanie) of Fairmont and also 13 great grandchildren.

Charles spent is younger years living in Canada, Ohio and West Virginia predominately. Charles was a veteran of World War II and served in the United State Army Air Corps as a Sergeant and a flight instructor. He was stationed at Victory Field in Vernon, Texas. Charles was an avid traveler and saw most of the United States and many other countries as well. Charles spent is life being devoted to his five children and his grandchildren. Many in the community felt his generosity and kindness. Charles started Lloyd’s Stave Co. in Heaters, WV and has been in business for 53 years. He owned many other businesses associated with Lloyd Stave Co, including the Shell filling station and Food Store in Flatwoods, WV. All of his employees would echo his kind heart and hard work. He still went to work every day until recently when COVID made it nearly impossible. Charles was a remarkable man who made this community prosper. Charles married Shirley Ann Singleton of Burnsville in 1986 and spent the rest of his life in a beautiful marriage with so much love. He and Shirley traveled the world together and worked together for decades, relishing in laughter, singing and dancing. Charles sang many songs and always had a song for every conversation or occasion and when there was not a song he had a joke to tell you and make you smile. Every morning, he and Shirley read devotionals before breakfast. He was a wonderful father, grandfather, friend and mentor. In 2017, Charles was enshrined into the West Virginia Agriculture and Forestry Hall of Fame. He enjoyed watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune every night and almost never answered a question or puzzle incorrectly. Many who knew him knew of his quick wit, his endless knowledge and love of puzzle of all kinds. He will be missed by so many and it will be an adjustment for all of us to live without him. He was a man who never asked anything if anyone but always gave whatever was needed. Generous is an understatement for Charles Lloyd. He was a brilliant businessman who would share his knowledge and experience with anyone willing to learn. He spent 98 years on Earth but he will spend eternity in Heaven and we can all rest easy knowing we will see Charles Lloyd again and one day hear his songs of joy.

Service will be 4:00 PM, Sunday, November 8, 2020 at Stockert-Paletti Funeral Home, 378 Flatwoods Corner Rd, Flatwoods. Friends may join the family for visitation 1:00 PM until service time on Sunday.

I know Charles & Shirley most recently through Lions Club. To me they represented the True Spirit of the Lions. I also appreciated Charles letting me put my political sign in his front yard “as long as it didn’t block his view.”

I have known and worked with Charles for 43 years. The first thing that comes to mind relative to Charles has been his easy going personality. He always had a smile and a genuine interest in others. During that entire time, I never saw him yell or lose his temper. He displayed a sense of practicality that is often missing today. He was a true gentleman and very humble in his success. I will miss Charles.
