September 29, 1949 ~ March 9, 2021

Born in: Jackson, Mississippi
Resided in: Lawrenceville, Georgia

Jesse Edward Lloyd was born September 29, 1949 to the late Edward Lloyd and Annie Mae Gray. He was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi where he attended Lanier High School and Alcorn A&M College. Jesse was preceded in death by his sister, Ella Mae Kelly.

Jesse accepted Christ at an early age in Jackson, Mississippi where he was baptized. He is survived by his devoted wife, Shirley M. Lloyd, to whom he was united in holy matrimony for 43 years until his passing. To this union, two sons and one daughter was born.

During his career, Jesse worked in shipping and receiving at Continental Trailways Bus Line and as a machine operator at RR Donnelley. After several years in retail management, he worked at Cinram in shipping and receiving until his retirement in 2012.

He was a member of Main Baptist Church in Aurora, Illinois under the servant leadership of Pastor Julian Spencer where he served on the Usher board until relocating to Lawrenceville, Georgia in 2014.

Jesse was a loving husband, devoted father, exceptional grandfather, cherished uncle, favored brother-in-law, and friend to all. He never met a stranger and was loved by many because of his bright personality and attitude towards life. Those who knew Jesse knew his love of cooking, fishing, family, and more cooking. He was a master in the kitchen and you would never be hungry around him.

On March 9, 2021, he was called to his heavenly home at the age of 71 while at Emory University Hospital in Decatur, Georgia. God called out to let him know his job here was “well done,” and He carried him home where there is no sickness, pain, or sorrow.

He leaves to cherish his memories: Three sons – Carl Lloyd (Arlean) of Jackson, Mississippi, Anthony Lloyd (Mechelle) of Jacksonville, Florida and Jared Lloyd of Lawrenceville, Georgia; Two daughters – Tony Gunn (Christopher) of Jackson, Mississippi and Tshinina Gear (Jamal) of Lawrenceville, Georgia; 12 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, and a host of in-laws, nieces, nephews, relatives, and lifelong devoted friends including David Terrell, Marion Roots, Bobby Dixon, Dale Hobbs, and Lester Harvey.
