Loyd Crown passed away surrounded by family on Sept. 11, 2018, at his home in Hood River, Ore. Loyd was born on May 13, 1939, and was 79 years of age at the time of his passing.
Loyd was born to Nellie Rindels and Paul Crown in Charles Mix County, S.D. Loyd was a great story teller and we have heard the many stories of how Loyd and his brother, Andy, have built up almost everything here in the Hood River Valley. He worked most of his career in Hood River as a general contractor, then worked for the Port of Hood River as a toll collector on the bridge. In his spare time, he loved playing cards, gardening and canning food. Loyd loved listening to good ‘ol country music and man, could he dance.
He married Carol Johnson in February 1973. They loved to take their daughters, Kim and Debbie, on vacation with them. Together, the two of them loved to entertain and could often be found barbecuing, surrounded by amazing friends and food. After Carol passed, Loyd started traveling with his buddies, fishing in Alaska, going to the NASCAR experience, and to Vegas, just to name a few. He also loved his daily routine of heading out to 1301 to spend part of the day with his friends.
Loyd was preceded in death by his loving wife, Carol (Johnson) Crown in 1994; his daughter, Debbie Crown, in 2012; all of his siblings, brothers, John, Bert, Bobby, Curtis and Andy, and sister, Lois; and grandson Jason Loyd. He leaves behind his daughter, Kim Juhnke; granddaughter, Cassi Knight, her husband Chris and their kiddos Jonathan, Joshua, Shelby, Izabella, and Lea; and also many great friends that he considered family.
The family would like to share a special thank you to Heart of Hospice for assisting them during Loyd’s final days.
