He was baptized at St. Mark Lutheran Church in Symco and confirmed at St. Paul Lutheran Church where he was a member and also where he was united in marriage to Shirley Zander on August 11, 1956.

Lloyd started farming when he was 12 years old. He and his dad would get up at 4:30 am to go out to the farm to milk the cows and feed the pigs.

In 1992, Lloyd and Shirley opened Ferg's Bavarian Village. It included a Bed and Breakfast, gift shop, German style restaurant, and the Stille Nacht Church. Together they started Oktoberfest at the village in August of 1998, and it was held for the last time in 2010. From 1978 to 2010 a beautiful Christmas Nativity display could be seen on the hill at the village.
