Obituary for Quentin Allan Lloyd

Quentin Alan Lloyd was born April 22, 1949 in Oakland, California to parents Kenneth and Mariette (nee Seguin). The family soon relocated to Alexandria, Virginia for his father’s work as a naval scientist. There, Quentin graduated from Fort Hunt High School in Alexandria and then moved to Michigan with his mother and sister following the death of his father. In Michigan, Quentin worked as a mechanic and machinist before enlisting in the Navy. He served as a machine repairman on the nuclear submarine tender USS Nereus at Naval Base San Diego during the Vietnam War.

Following his service, Quentin returned to Detroit where he met his future wife, Lynn, in 1972 and started a 35 year career at Chrysler in 1973. They were married in Redford in 1974 and started a very close relationship with his wife’s parents, Karl & Margaret, whom he lovingly considered mom and dad.

Despite not being a kid-person, as he called it, Quentin gave Lynn her dream of a big family with sons, Sean in 1978, Kyle in 1981, Chad in 1983 and finally a daughter, Meghann, in 1985. It was during this time that Quentin also completed his Bachelor degree at Central Michigan University while working full time for his family.

Over the next years, Quentin would spend countless days at the family cottage in Roscommon, dirt biking, snowmobiling and boating at Higgins Lake with his family. Or you could find him on the sidelines coaching his children and later cheering them on through all the soccer games, swim meets and band competitions. He enjoyed traveling the country in their 5th wheel trailer and visits to Europe, but his favorite family vacation was the annual camping trip to Lake Leelanau. While working at Chrysler, Quentin became involved in FIRST Robotics, volunteering 11 years to the high school robotics program and their robot, “Buzz.” Quentin was also a Scouter with Boy Scouts of America for over 34 years, seeing all three of his sons reach the rank of Eagle Scout and continuing as a scoutmaster and merit badge instructor at Trail to Eagle camp for 22 years.

In his retirement, Quentin could be seen working with his sons in their businesses and trying to keep up with his toddler grandchildren. It was while on a cruise in the Caribbean that Quentin passed after spending the week with his family and beloved wife, enjoying all the fun of the ship and being on the water, his favorite place.

Quentin was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, Kerry, his sister, Karyn and his in-laws, Karl and Margaret Hykal. He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Lynn; children, Sean (Julie), Kyle (Kate), Chad (Nita) and Meghann (Derek); and grandchildren Charlotte (4) and Greyson (2).
