Lloyd was skilled in many things in life. He was a jack- of-all-trades, but he was a master in welding, and that was his passion. He was very talented and could turn someone’s trash into treasure. He was a brilliant man. Lloyd enjoyed country music, especially Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson.
His love for his grandchildren transformed him into the most amazing Papa. Although Lloyd had made mistakes in his lifetime, he spent the past few months trying to make amends with people he loved. Most importantly, he had reaffirmed his relationship with God and was secure in that knowledge.
He was preceded in death by his biological mom, Addie Sue Watson; his dad, Louie Baker; his sister Maurice Sands; his biological sister, Barbara Meeker, as well as his grandson, Aremy, Jr.
Lloyd is survived by his wife, Juli Pevehouse-Baker; his mom, Dorothy Baker; his children, Nicole Baker, Dana Baker and husband Aremy Armstrong, Skyllar Baker and partner Gerardo Hermosillo; his grandchildren, Trinity, Cosme, Jada, Peyton, Matthew, Zerayah, Nevaeh, Shaughnessy, Myleigh, Sarah, Ezekiel, Leilah, and Blakely. He is also survived by his sister, Antionetti Flanagan, his brother, Marion Baker, and his biological siblings, Doug Watson, Christine Harris, Charles Watson, Craig Watson, Cynthia Ferrara, and Carla Watson.
I would like to reiterate that Lloyd WAS a brilliant man. When I met him, I was extremely impressed with his knowledge and talent. We shared some very special moments that will always remain in my heart. Before meeting we both made choices that led us in the wrong path. But had we not made those choices, we would not have met. And even tho we were not “the one” for each other, I will always be grateful and consider it a blessing to have known him. May he rest in eternal peace. Love, Esmeralda Lucero Patterson
