Jeffrey Jo-Ray Lloyd, 62, Passed away at his residence surrounded by his loving family on August 5, 2019.
Jeff was born in Zanesville on January 22, 1957. He is the son of the late Wallace and Bernadine (Foster) Lloyd. He is a graduate of Maysville High School class of 1975 and he proudly served in the US Army from 1975 to 1978. He was employed with United Technologies for many years and he worked as custodian and grounds keeper with Ohio University Zanesville for the last 25 years.
Jeff was always known to be ‘chipper as a chipmunk’ and he accomplished many things in his life. He was a professional clown, a Big Brother, and a 2008 Hometown Hero Award recipient.
One of his favorite things was being a volunteer firefighter for South Zanesville Fire Department where he retired after 16 years of service.
Jeff’s greatest joy came thirty-four years ago when he rescued the love of his life, her two small children and her tipsy mother from a stalled car on the riverbank at Putnam Landing.
