r ,f .. Frederick Augustus Lloyd was
born in Green Bank, Tortola, BVI.
He was the last of 9 children, 4
boys and 5 girls, born to parents
who died before he was 10 years
old. At the tender age of 15, he
migrated to the Dominican Repub-
lic, to forge a life for himself. While
there, Frederick Lloyd learned
many skills and worked in vari-
ous capacities. He delighted in tell-
ing stories, to whomever would
-, .' listen, about his adventures in the
1.Reuc Frederick came to St Thomas
I*_ in 1927. As a result of the skills he
acquired in the "Republic", he was always able to obtain employment at a
time when it was a premium. One of his first jobs was that of chef at
Bluebeard's Hotel Subsequently, he became manager of Goddard's Rum
Distillery, a position in which great trust and responsibility was thrust on
him, since the owners of the company resided on the US. mainland and
made infrequent trips to St Thomas. After the distillery was closed in the
late 1950's, Frederick was hired by the municipal government where he
held several positions until his retirement. After retiring, he joined the
local fishing industry, enjoying his postretirement career as a fisherman,
until his 80th birthday.
Frederick Lloyd loved to cook and took particular delight in preparing
the favorite dishes of his family and friends for his and their enjoyment
As a father he was a strict disciplinarian who tempered his sternness with
large doses of love and kindness.
Following a brief illness, he quietly departed this plane on Wednes-
day, February 22,1995. He was blessed with a long, full life. Although his
presence will be missed, he will live on in the hearts of all who knew and

Pop, Poppy, Dad, our father
A very special, gentle person full of love
A friend, an advisor full of wisdom
A teacher of strong disciplines full of strength
A Pop who encouraged us to love and to be good to everyone
A Pop who taught us to share, full of kindness
A Pop who taught us to trust in God
A Pop whose advice in times of difficulty was,
"Leave it to the ledger of the Lord"
He would not want us to be sorrowful
This is the Pop, Poppy, Dad that we knew
We shall always love him and remember all that he stood for.
Your sons, Ken, Bobby and grandchildren
For Daddy... Weep not for Daddy, for he lived life his way! He was
smoother than aged guavaberry wine; more nourishing than red peas
soup; sweeter than an August mango; with a hand that could satisfy any
appetite, and a smile that could warm any heart.
His love for us was intense as the island sun, yet gentle as the ocean's
breeze. How fortunate we are to have had him for so long. Rest now
Daddy, as we "fire one" in celebration of your life.
Your loving daughters, "Bamps" and "Tweeney"
For Grandpa ... In my heart, Grandpa will be remembered for his
vitality of spirit. I will always hold an image of a strong man with a full
head of white hair and a beautiful smile; a man who commanded his
children's love and my respect. It is my fortune to be his granddaughter. I
Uncle Fred .. You were more than just an uncle! You were a special
uncle, friend and a loving, caring, kind counselor. When we sought your
assistance for any problem, you always had a remedy, whether medicinal
or in words. Your love encompassed everyone.
We enjoyed your stories about your life as a young man and about
your travels, but most of all we enjoyed your discussions about your
family in Tortola and how we were reunited with each other. You leave
us not to mourn, but to rejoice your entrance to that heavenly home of
rest We will miss you, but your memory we will hold dear to our hearts.
The Lloyd Family, Tortola, BVI
Dear Uncle Fred ... We will miss you, but we take comfort in the
knowledge that you are with our dear Lord. May you rest in blissful
With inexpressible love, Marvis, Toya and family
Farewell faithful friend... We now bid adieu. No more perhaps we'll
meet till the great judgement day and I hope that I may meet you with
Christ in the sky.
Your dear friend, Carl Evert Vanterpool
Mr. Lloyd ... A very caring and concerned friend. He would call me
Lad. Every time we spoke, he would ask me about my family. Every
Christmas, I would expect two bottles of the world's greatest Guavaberry
rum. Rest in peace, Lad.
Austin Andrews and Family
Mr. Lloyd... The passing of Frederick A. Lloyd leaves a deep void in
the lives of our immediate family. It has been a great honor and privilege
for us to have known Mr. Lloyd for the past 33 years. We will always be
grateful for the numerous things he has taught us. May he rest in eternal
Bobby, Myrtle, Ling, and Linky
Mr. Lloyd ... When I heard of your departure from this world, that
was a very sad moment But, knowing that you are in the arms of the
Lord, we can all overcome our sorrows.
Your friend, Walter Dawson
