Lloyd D. Stansberry, beloved senior member of our family took a sharp left turn off the path of life from his new home in Prescott, Arizona recently. Born in Denver, as a “Firecracker Baby” on Independence Day 1952, this second baby boomer of Stan and Dolores joined the parade of the American experience in the Post War era of growth, optimism and prosperity. Stan’s rising star in business, supported by Dolores’s stellar family management led all five of the family to Houston, as part of the American post war diaspora to the Southwest, from where Lloyd’s story begins.
Finally, settling in the fast growth zone south of Houston, Lloyd joined the firm of Alton Todd and Roy Brown, his mentors of the practice of private Law. Assigned their criminal and family law matters, he quickly became known as a sharp litigator with lethal cross examination skill in the court rooms of Brazoria County.
In the end, Lloyd’s greatest legacy will be in his family life manifested by two stout offspring. David, the first born, as a young scientist (Lloyd never could get science!) And Marisa, an up and coming health care executive (Lloyd didn’t like doctors much, either). The brightest light in Lloyd’s eye was the love and commitment for these two wonderful individuals. In leaving the world better than one finds it with our offspring, Lloyd has contributed to the global good with this fine spirited family, enabled by the wonderful partners in his life who loved him despite it all (in chronological order): Susan, Kathy, Bobbi, and Sun.
