Lloyd Alma Allen, died of natural causes incident to old age, on February 14, 2023 at his home in South Ogden, Utah.
Lloyd was born December 5, 1929, in Riverdale, UT to Maurice Alma Allen and Harriet Pearl Combe. He married Elaine LaRae Tullis Jacobs on May 25, 1962.
He grew up in the Ogden area and graduated from Weber High School.
Lloyd served in the U.S. Army from September 24, 1954 to September 10, 1956. He served in Germany patrolling the East/West German border (iron curtain).
After the army, Lloyd worked at the Naval Supply Depot in Clearfield, UT on map making machines, and later at Hill Air Force Base as a mechanic. Then in 1966, he and his wife LaRae opened Allen’s Hobby Craft in Roy, Utah, which was later moved to Riverdale, Utah.
Lloyd was an active member of the Weber County Sheriff’s Jeep Patrol. He also loved to ride motorcycles, and went on a number of cross country trips, including a motorcycle trip to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally near the Black Hills in South Dakota. He created gardens full of raspberries, strawberries, tomatoes, and even a cactus garden. Additionally, Lloyd loved to hunt, fish, and ride snowmobiles.
He had a unique talent of modifying any tool he purchased, improving its usefulness. Lloyd’s garage is full of masterfully minded one-of-a-kind Lloyd originals. He has a tool for everything, could fix anything, and always made improvements to whatever he bought.
He was a wonderful and caring husband, a terrific dad, great example, and loyal friend.
Lloyd was preceded in death by his wife, LaRae, in 1989, and is survived by his older brother Glen Allen of Roy, sister-in-law, Elaine Allen of Roy, and his two step sons, Breon Jacobs, So. Ogden and Randy Jacobs, Sandy, Utah.
