He married Patsy Dunegan on November 7, 1953. He was honorably discharged from the Air Force in 1957, and the couple moved to El Dorado, Kansas, where Lloyde worked at the local Ford dealership while also running cattle on their 160-acre ranch.

Shortly afterwards, the family moved to Wichita Falls, Texas and Lloyde re-established his used car business and then on to Bowie, Texas, continuing in the business for an additional 21 years until his retirement in 2018, due to illness. After retirement, the couple then moved to Altus to be close to family.
