Dr. Edward H. “Ted” Lloyd Jr., 78, of Northwood, ND went peacefully to
his heavenly home in the presence of family on March 17, 2019, at
Aneta Parkview Health center, Aneta, ND.
On September 24, 1940, Edward H. Lloyd was born to Edward and Lela
Lloyd in Jackson Hole, WY. He was baptized and confirmed in his home
church of St John’s Episcopal Church, Jackson Hole, WY. He was raised
on the family’s cattle ranch and graduated from Jackson High School in
Edward earned his BS degree in Agriculture at the University of
Wyoming, where he met the love of his life, Susan King, from
California. They were married in 1963 in Van Nuys, California.
He continued his education at the university and received his MS
degree in Plant Pathology. He went on to Washington State University,
where he received his PhD in Plant Pathology in 1968.
From WSU he accepted the position of Extension Plant Pathologist at
North Dakota State University. He was able to organize a TV
short-course on plant disease, wrote weekly pest reports to county
agents, managed the NDSU Disease Diagnostic Laboratory, and learned to
fly a single engine airplane so he could use infra-red photography to
help detect plant disease in the fields as he traveled the state to
give talks concerning disease. He felt his white hair was helpful --
instead of thinking he might be a “young whipper-snapper” discussing
plant disease.
Edward had an excellent job at NDSU, but felt strongly that private
consulting would be the future. This became his dream. After eight
years with NDSU, he moved his family to Northwood, ND in 1976 and
established AGVISE, Inc. He was blessed to have John Norgaard as
Research Director, Bob Deutsch as a soil specialist, and many other
dedicated employees throughout the years. Ed felt strongly that there
should be a national society of agricultural professionals who would
provide research and advisory services to clients. NAICC (National
Alliance of Independent Crop Consultants) was founded in 1978, and Ed
was one of the founding members.
In 1994 he was elected by ND District 19 to the office of House of
Representative. He felt honored and humbled to serve his state.
Edward was able to develop a certified Red Angus cattle herd, for it’s
hard to take the cowboy away from the ranch life! He was a member of
the National Red Angus Association and held a position on the board.
He treasured his given family. He was a devoted husband and father.
One of his proudest moments was seeing his two sons and grandchildren
having the interest to continue the AGVISE Research company. He
always desired to have a hover machine to survey the crops for disease
and now his family may have that opportunity.
Edward was a member of Ebenezer Free Lutheran church where he taught
Sunday School and resided on the Building Committee after the tornado
occurred. He was a member of the Northwood Lions Club.
He is survived by his wife, Susan; two sons: Edward (Jodi) and Derek
(Robin); grandchildren: Joel (Kim) Lloyd, Danielle (Dave) Berg, Alise
Chin, Dustin (Ginger) Kunz, Cory, McKenzi (Isaac) Bartow, Jenifer,
Katelyn, Baylee, Colter and Hayden; great grandchildren: Makaia,
Kaden, Westin, Hallee, Aaliyah, Aria and Montana Jo; Lael Byrne
(brother-in-law); many nephews, nieces, cousins; and his cowboy buddy,
Gene Shinkle.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Lela Lloyd;
daughter, Rebecah Kunz; and sister, Louise Byrne.
The family of Edward wishes to thank Aneta Parkview Health Center, Red
River Hospice for their compassion and dedicated care.
