Lloyd C. Gill Jr. went Home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on August 26, 2022, surrounded by his family. Lloyd wore many hats during his lifetime andwas affectionately known as “Daddy”, “Pappaw”, “Lloyd Clifton”, “Jack”, “Uncle Jack”, and “Toodnah”.
He was born on August 9, 1934, in Alto, Louisiana, to LloydC. Gill, Sr. and Mary Allyne O’Neal Gill. He grew up in the Fairbanks community. He graduated from Ouachita Parish High School and Northeast Louisiana University (ULM). He worked in the oil and gas industry until his retirement in 1999.
He married Anna Margaret Lowry Gill, and they had five children, Sheila Gill Manning, Mitchell A. Gill (Monique), Joseph Gill, Barbara Gill Hatok (Mark), and John C. Gill. Lloyd was preceded in death by his wife, Margaret, his parents, Lloyd C. and Allyne Gill, his son, Joseph Lloyd Gill, his great granddaughter, Avery Starns, and his son-in-law, Cecil Manning, Jr.
He is survived by his children and their spouses, his grandchildren, Erin Weaver (Jeff), Amy Starns (D.

Lloyd served in the U. S. Army. For many years, he coached little league baseball, youth basketball, and youth football. He was a fan of the Neville Tigers, OCS Eagles and ULM Warhawks. He was a long time member of Covenant Presbyterian Church serving as an Elder and singing in the choir (always promising a solo on Sunday morning). In his retirement years, he volunteered with the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Senior Patrol. He was a “steadfast” in so many lives and he will be dearly missed!
We would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff who took such wonderful care of him at the NE Louisiana Veterans Home and Heart of Hospice.
