Born March 22, 1925, in Spokane, WA, he grew up on a farm, served in the U.S. Navy and graduated in 1950 from the University of Washington with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering.

He began a career in urban planning in the Seattle area and subsequently worked with city and county governments in Portland and Eugene before opening the Portland office of CH2M Hill. He also worked for the Oregon Department of Planning and Development and was later appointed and then elected to the Portland City Council as commissioner of public works.  

He served as executive director of the Port of Portland from 1974 until his retirement in 1987. He served as AAPA Chairman of the Board in 1983-84 and hosted the AAPA Convention in Portland in 1985. 

Lloyd was highly regarded as an articulate and forceful advocate for the public port industry in an era of change and challenge.
