Obituary of LLoyd Bock

Lloyd B. Bock was born in Brush Colorado on October 17, 1928 to Neil and Vera Bock. He passed away on May 7th, 2012 at his residence early in the morning after battling cancer. He was the second of five children. His family left Brush when he was a young boy and spent a short time in Oregon before making their home on a farm in Lebanon, Kansas where he graduated from High School.

Having a free and Independent spirit he left home right out of High School heading west with his buddy "Cotton Top." His first job was at the old Phillips 66 station in Kremmling. There he met the love of his life Laverne Stathos. They were married for sixty-five years during which time they raised six children together.

The second love of his life was working and he did not retire completely until he was eighty years young! He owned and operated Bock Construction for many years which is still in existence with his son Tim.

He had many hobbies and a huge imagination making lots of crafts. He loved clocks of any kind, tractors and enjoyed his garden especially after retirement. He was proud to be the Grand Marshall of the Kremmling Day's parade in 2010.

Several in the community were recipients of his charitable heart! He loved and was loved by his large extended family.

He has eleven Grand kids and 18 Great Grand kids. He never did forgive his first Grand son Jeff for making him sleep with a Grandma! He is survived by his wife Laverne. Kids: Teddi, Dan, Tim, Brenda, Ron and their families. Siblings: Bill, Eula, Ruthie, Donna and families. Many Nieces and Nephews.

Preceded in death by His Son Bill, His parents, brother-in-laws Bob Shay and Marion Stathos. Sister-in-laws Vera Shay and Jeanne Stathos.

I have always liked a lot of Lloyd's stories. The one I remember the most is about the Floridian that came to Kremmling to build his cabin in the mountains. He was one of the guys that had a way of always rubbing you the wrong way. He complained about the high cost of everything in Colorado. He was having Lloyd put his driveway in, and complaining about the cost of doing it. He ask Lloyd what a septic system would cost him, and Lloyd told him about $2000.00, (which is cheaper than I am sure anyone else would even consider doing it for). The Floridian said "no way", he could get one done for $600.00 in Florida. Lloyd looked at him and with out cracking a smile said "put it in your suitcase and bring it with you then". I will truly miss Lloyd's wit and great wealth of knowledge about the area and all who lived here many years ago.

Our thoughts and love to the Colorado Bocks during this time. Uncle Bud was quite a character to have around in our family, and we could definitely see the impact and influence he had on his wonderfully zany brood! We greatly regret that we won't have a chance to meet and talk with him again, but will always cherish the wonderful memories we made with him and you all at our last family reunion. May you all find comfort through memories, laughter, tears, and each other during this time. Lots of love to you all, Crystal and Jacob

So sorry to hear about Lloyd, we have a lot of fond memories of our friends Lloyd and LaVerne. Our prayers go out to the whole family. Wish we could of come to the services. We were saying we have lost a lot of very close and good friends from Kremmling. One of our memories is our riding our bikes in the evening after dinner in Kremmling, except it normally was just us women and my husband LLoyd. Once in a while LaVerne would let Lloyd come with her but he always wanted to stop at the Dairy King and get ice cream which defeated our purpose of the bike ride. But we all went with him and laughed a lot.

I'm thinking Jared was four when we stopped through Kremmling when Uncle Bud and Aunt Laverne took us to eat at a new really nice restaurant in Hot Sulphur Springs. Jared was served milk in a nice glass and took a bite out of the glass. He wasn't hurt but the restaurant owner was very worried about him. Jared also threw a rock at the big window in Uncle Bud's house. We weren't sure we would be invited back to Kremmling but we've managed to make several trips there since. We'll miss Uncle Bud and his stories. Kirk, Kathy and Jared
