Lloyd Ellis Dodd, 94, of Hampton, Iowa, passed away Thursday, April 13, 2017, at Franklin Country View Nursing Facility in Hampton. He was born on July 30, 1922, on a farm west of Chapin, to William Arthur Dodd and Stella Crain Dodd.

Lloyd graduated from Chapin High School. He was united in marriage to Elvera Ruth Johansen on June 28, 1945, in Chapin, Iowa. Lloyd farmed in the Chapin and Aredale areas. He also sold insurance and real estate and worked for the government in crop information.

Lloyd was a member of the Hampton United Methodist Church. He was on the Farmers Elevator Board, the Rockwell Telephone Board and the Franklin County Conservation Board.

Lloyd, in retirement, enjoyed crossword and number puzzles, tinkering with things to make or improve, and taking part in games with other residents at Apple Valley. He always said the benefits of retirement were doing things slower at a more relaxing speed and not at all if so desired. Lloyd also enjoyed watching sports, western movies and many other TV shows.

He is survived by his wife of seventy-one years, Elvera Dodd of Hampton, son Donald Dodd of Hampton, son Dale and wife Shelley Dodd of Hampton, son Kenneth and wife Doreen Dodd of Hiawatha, grandchildren Melinda and husband Dereck Klaassen of Des Moines, Jennifer and husband Joe Cox of Urbandale, Tom and wife Tina Dodd of Dexter, Minnesota, Bryce Dodd of Hampton, Todd and wife Keri Dodd of Marion and Jason and wife Molly Dodd of Hiawatha, great-grandchildren Ryan, Alex, Morgan, Matthew, Megan, Sam, Bianca, Abigail, Carter, Kiana, Ellis, Kaylea, Olivia, and Everett, along with many nieces and nephews.

Lloyd was preceded in death by his parents William and Stella, sisters Esther and Mabel and brothers Wayne and Harold.

Elvera, Don, Dale, and Ken,
Our families have been friends and neighbors for a long time and our hearts are sad for yours right now. Your dad was a good neighbor to our Grandpa and Grandma Collins and to Grandma Geer and Susie as well and they thought a lot of him. I still remember (vividly) looking out our bathroom window and seeing your farm on fire and how all of us as neighbors rushed to help your family who had helped all of ours so many times. May God comfort, heal and guide in the days ahead. Patti Persons

Don, Dale, and Ken, what nice memories I have of your dad, and your whole family. Your dad was always so friendly and had kind words whenever I would see him. Being the youngest, I had to find things to do on lazy summer days, as my siblings started to disappear with jobs and young adult life. So, many days, I would ride my horse to your folks' farm, and spend the afternoons having lovely conversations with your grandma, in her little trailer. What a priceless treasure she was to me! You have all been so good to our family, and I'm sorry for your loss.

Sue and I enjoyed visiting with Lloyd, and you, too, Elvera. We saw a couple who very much loved one another, and whose abiding joy was infectious to others. Prayers and peace to all of the family.

I have stopped in to talk with Lloyd and Elvera from the time I was a child all the way through adulthood. I was always welcomed with a smile into their home. The world lost a great man!!

It was always fun to visit with Lloyd and Elvera when my mother (Ardyce Riis) also lived at the apartments. Many good memories of times they spent with my parents and others in rural Franklin County. My condolences to Elvera and the family. I miss replenishing your jigsaw puzzle assortment, Elvera.
