Lloyd Wayne Conder, 78, died Friday, October 25, 2019, surrounded by loved ones following his long battle with cancer.
He leaves behind his wife of 14 years, Marilyn (Shumway, Prock) Conder; his daughters and their families, Steve Brown & Christine (Conder) Barbere and Bob & Karen (Conder) Belcher; his sons and their families, Michael & Carley Conder, Scott & Anna Conder, and John Conder; his ten grandchildren and two great-grandchildren; his four brothers and their families; and many close friends. Lloyd loved his family and friends a great deal and enjoyed spending time with each of them. This year, he was able to hold his first of two adorable great-grandchildren.
Lloyd was born in Gunnison, Utah; and raised in California. He is the oldest son of Will and Erda (Hill) Conder. He has four beloved younger brothers.
In his early years, Lloyd graduated from Hawthorne High School in Hawthorne, CA. He served in the tank division of the Army and served as a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the state of Texas.
Lloyd met his first wife, Bessie (Ashby) Conder (she passed away in 1995) at a stake dance and they were married in the Los Angeles temple in 1965. Through the years, his success can be directly attributed to his strong work ethic, his natural kindness and sales aptitude. He took pride in primarily working for himself and with business partners in ventures including owning multiple grocery stores and residential property rentals. His favorite, and highly recommended labor of love, was as a temple worker in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Mesa Arizona Temple and the Gilbert Arizona Temple.
A funeral service will be held November 9 at 10am at the LDS church building, 2252 W Mesquite St, Chandler, Arizona, 85224. His body will be interred in a family plot at the Mesa Cemetery.
