Lloyd was a loyal community member, devoted family man and is lovingly remembered by his family: daughter Kari (Todd) Zehner of Chesterton IN; son Lloyd ‘Buck’ (Aurora) Kittredge of Chesterton IN; daughter Kelly (Tom) Brooks of Wildwood MO; grandchildren Doug and Elizabeth ‘Biz’ Zehner, Holly and Nicolas ‘Nico’ Kittredge, Alec and Lauren Brooks; sisters Ada Hiller of Valparaiso IN and Jennifer (Harry) Tice of Three Rivers MI; nephew Kent Hiller of Carmel IN and niece Anna Tice of Riverside, CA. Our extended love, appreciation and gratitude to his caregiver and a true family friend, Sharon Morris, and the many dear friends, clinicians, and neighbors whose lives he affected.
Lloyd was born in Valparaiso, IN on February 3, 1940 to Roy and Vesta (Kraft) Kittredge. He graduated from Valparaiso High School in 1958 and attended both Indiana University and Valparaiso University. He enlisted and served in the Marine Corps. He was an avid sailor, Eagle Scout, member of the Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors (SAMS), member of the Free Masons for 50+ years, singer, dog and cat lover, and loved to tinker in the garage at every chance. Lloyd retired from marine craft surveying which allowed him to follow his passion for sailing and all things watercraft. He led a rich and full life.
