Galen C. Lloyd, age 53 years, of Great Bend, Kansas passed away on Saturday afternoon, May 13, 2017 at Great Bend Regional Hospital in Great Bend after a sudden illness. Galen was born on June 14, 1963 at Great Bend, Kansas to George J. and Betty J. (Byerly) Lloyd.

    I will always remember when we were growing up and was
    staying at aunt Betty while my mom and Dad John and uncle
    George and aunt Betty would go out he would always pick on
    me and Mary and Richard and would have us all laughing while
    we would be watching Charlie and the chocolate factory .
