After moving to the US, Lloyd settled in Hartford and spent most of his career in the insurance industry. He worked for many years at New York Life Insurance Company as a recruiting manager and later worked as an Assistant Officer of Customer Service at Connecticut Mutual Insurance Company until his retirement in 1987. Proud of his West Indian heritage, Lloyd was active in several Jamaican and West Indian groups in the Hartford Community. He was a Past Vice President of the Caribbean American Society of Hartford, he was one of the founding members of the National Association of Jamaican and Supportive Organization (NAJASO), and played the piano and keyboard for many years with the West Indian musical group, "The Hummingbirds." His involvement and selfless contributions to the community led him to receive numerous accolades and awards from many organizations over the years.
Music was a central focus of Lloyd's life. The son of a music teacher, Lloyd played piano since he was a child and served as the organist and choir director at his church, North United Methodist Church, for over 40 years. After his retirement, he founded "Island Style Disco" and provided DJ services throughout the NorthEast. He loved sports but was most passionate about Cricket and travelled back to Jamaica many times to watch test matches with his friends and family.
