Lloyd B. Bock
Lloyd B. Bock passed away on Monday, May 7, 2012, early in the morning at his residence. He was born in Brush, Colo. on Oct. 17, 1928, to Neil and Vera Bock. He was the second of five children. His family left Brush when he was a young boy and spent a short time in Oregon before making their home on a farm in Lebanon, Kansas where he graduated from High School.
Having a free and Independent spirit, he left home right out of High School heading west with his buddy “Cotton Top.” His first job was at the old Phillips 66 station in Kremmling. There, he met the love of his life Laverne Stathos. They were married for 65 years during which time they raised six children together.
The second love of his life was the act of working, and he did not retire completely until he was 80 years young. He owned and operated Bock Construction for many years, which is still in existence with his son Tim.
He had many hobbies and a huge imagination making lots of crafts. He loved clocks of any kind, tractors and enjoyed his garden especially after retirement. He was proud to be the Grand Marshall of the Kremmling Day’s parade in 2010.
Several in the community were recipients of his charitable heart. He loved and was loved by his large extended family.
He has 11 grandkids and 18 great-grandkids. He is survived by his wife Laverne, kids Teddi, Dan, Tim, Brenda, Ron and their families, and siblings Bill, Eula, Ruthie, Donna and families, as well as many nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his son Bill, his parents, brothers-in-law Bob Shay and Marion Stathos, and sisters-in-law Vera Shay and Jeanne Stathos.
Memorial service will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 9, at the West Grand High School. In addition to flowers, donations may be made to Heart of the Mountains Hospice, P.O. Box 140, Hot Sulphur Springs, CO 80451.
