He was born Feb. 3, 1934, in Aliquippa, Pa., to Wilbert and Thella Lloyd.
Don graduated from Shippensburg State Teachers College, and received his Master’s degree in education from George Washington University. He served his country in the U.S. Army throughout Europe. Don was a former principal in the Prince George’s County, Md., public school system for 32 years, a Masonic brother for over 50 years, and was also the former owner of Pyramid Carpet in Camp Springs, Md.
