Lloyd was born Oct. 10, 1951, in Libby to Frank and Lillian Wood O'Brien. He was raised in Eureka and Missoula.

Lloyd and his wife Susan raised five children while living in northern Idaho. While Lloyd and Sue built their home, Lloyd worked in construction to provide for his family. After 20 years Lloyd and Sue were divorced.
