Lloyd Ervin Joiner, the son of Harold Thomas and Ethel Viola (McFarland) Joiner, was born February 6, 1935 at Fort Dodge, Iowa. He was raised on the family farm in Weaver Township and attended Unique Country School. He attended Humboldt High School where he played football and where his love of playing the trumpet was sparked in the high school band. Following his graduation in 1953, Lloyd began farming with his father until establishing his own farming operations in 1958. While attending a dance at Bohemian Hall, Lloyd met Marilyn Hess and the couple was united in marriage on November 27, 1960 at a small church in Jamaica, Iowa. To this union, three daughters were born. Lloyd loved every one of the 58 years he farmed and was heartbroken when his health forced his retirement and was very proud of the his family’s century farm.
Music was a big part of Lloyd’s life. Learning to play the trumpet at an early age, it became his passion. He enjoyed the dance bands he was a member of in his early years, including the “Silver Tones” and the “Rhythm Ramblers, and the many community functions he shared his gifts through, including church services and 30 years with the Community Chorus. He was a member of the Faith United Methodist Church and the Humboldt Model A Club. His many years on the farm made him a jack of all trades and took great pride in restoring his Model A cars and antique tractor.
