James Steward Lloyd Sr., 89, rural mail carrier

June 15, 2006

James Stewart Lloyd Sr., a retired rural mail carrier whose routes once took him through the back roads of northern Baltimore County, died of pneumonia Sunday at Carroll Lutheran Village in Westminster. He was 89.

Mr. Lloyd was born in Baltimore and raised in Ruxton. He was a 1934 graduate of Towson High School and attended the Baltimore College of Commerce. During the 1930s, he served in the merchant marine.

He was drafted into the Army in 1945 and served as a guard at the Nuremberg war crimes trials.

He went to work in 1947 as a rural mail carrier working out of the Cockeysville Post Office. "He had routes in Hunt Valley, Phoenix and Cockeysville, which were undeveloped in those days," said his son, James S. Lloyd Jr. of Silver Run, Carroll County.

FOR THE RECORD - An obituary for James Stewart Lloyd published in Thursday's editions included an incorrect spelling of his middle name in the headline and incorrectly listed the date of his memorial service. It will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Krug Chapel at Carroll Lutheran Village, 300 St. Luke Circle, Westminster. The Sun regrets the errors.

Mr. Lloyd retired in 1977.

He was a member of the International Order of Odd Fellows of Towson and Alto Hunting Club in Pennsylvania.

A former member of Towson Presbyterian Church, Mr. Lloyd was an active member of First United Presbyterian Church in Westminster, where he had lived since 1989.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. June 24 in the Krug Chapel at Carroll Lutheran Village, 300 St. Luke Circle.

Also surviving are his wife of 66 years, the former Mary Cross; a daughter, Susan Lloyd Woodworth of Waynesboro, Va.; a sister, Amanda Elizabeth Lindsay of Westminster; eight grandchildren; and 20 great-grandchildren.
