Lloyd H. Anderson, age 91 passed away at Bellin Hospital on November 9, 2022. Lloyd was preceded in death by both of his parents Olaves and Maria (Peterson) Anderson. Lloyd was a graduated of Sturgeon Bay High School.
As a young man his interest in aviation started with his first plane ride at age 7 in 1937 and thus began the passion for flying that took him through the rest of his life. He obtained his flight license in 1948, and entered the Air Force in 1948. He served during the Korean War through 1952 as a Jet Mechanic. He married Darlyne Belle Grovogel and had four children. She preceded him in death.
He bought his first airplane as a project while obtaining his A&P certificate as a mechanic for Trecker Aircraft. He learned to assemble the Piaggio Royal Gulls where he earned his multi-engine seaplane rating.
Lloyd started as an air traffic controller, first in Milwaukee and then in Green Bay. He worked for 33 years and retired in 1990 due to health concerns. Lloyd was an avid EAA member, volunteering his services to the EAA Seaplane Base for many years!
In 1981, he married Gloria Nelson and together they operated the Mouse House Cheese and specialty food shop. They had one child, Christopher and also raised her niece, Angela. Many years were spent traveling, going to soccer and football games, camping, and seeing the country.
