    We want to offer our condolences to all of Lloyd’s family. Lloyd and I have been friends since grade school and graduated together from Mesa High. We also have played on many baseball and basketball teams together. My wife was a friend of Sophy and was in the same graduating class. We will miss Lloyd’s phone calls and his vivid recall of games we played in together. We certainly will miss him!

  • Thomas Rademacher

    Lloyd was a true friend and gentleman. I am lucky to have known him and he will certainly be missed.

  • I have known the Harper family for a long time! Lloyd was a great example! He is blessed to be with his sweetheart! Our prayers are with the Harper family! LOVE YOU!

  • I can’t remember when Lloyd and Sophie were not part of my life. Yes I will look forward to seeing them again. God bless the Harper family.

  • Sure will miss you yelling out “It’s yours” in the outfield and playing with you. You, Orie, and I were the 3 best subs to help win a national championship. Love you Lloyd. See you soon. You are always in my prayers.

  • He was my great great grandpa I did not know him very well but from what I did know he was a outstanding person! I miss him very much
