LLOYD ERNEST FAULKNER – began his journey into this world on June 12, 1935 in his grandmother’s front room in Malvern, Arkansas. He was raised in Dallas, Texas by his mother, Marie Duncan and stepdad, Norval Duncan. Lloyd lived his life “his way”. He was always a positive, cheerful person and enjoyed every day. He graduated from Sunset High School where he was a fun-loving cheerleader. After graduating in 1954 he submitted his name for the draft and spent 2 years in the Army in Germany Every day was an adventure for him – he even liked the Army food.
In business, Lloyd was Comptroller of the Zales Jewelry Division before branching out in the 1970’s as a self employed salesperson in fashion jewelry. He often said he’d been to every little town in Texas. Then moving in fine jewelry, he opened First Gold Corp., manufacturing and selling fine jewelry and diamonds. When he traveled on the road he not only made customers, but they became friends as well some of which he still had.
Lloyd was literally a man of many hats. He started a construction company building a large self-storage facility and several duplexes. He bought rental houses and remodeled them. And if that wasn’t enough, he opened a ladies fashion clothing manufacturing company. He loved it all.
But most of all, he loved his family. Pre-deceased by him – Mother, Marie Duncan; stepdad, Norval Duncan; brother, Larry Duncan; and uncle R.G. Ham. Survived by the love of his life, wife and best friend, Shirley; daughters LeeAnn English (Steve); and Melinda Griffin (Stephen); stepdaughters, Mindy Kahn and Lori Cummings; “adopted” daughter and caregiver Teri Hitchcock; grandchildren (Ponca to them) Lauren Helfrich, Meigan English and Ian Cummings; son-in-law Guy Cummings; brother, Roland Duncan; sister, DeLaine Hurley and many nieces and nephewsand some wonderful friends.
