Lloyd Eads Obituary

Lloyd Lavon Eads passed away peacefully in Crawfordsville on January 29, 2024, at the age of 91. Lloyd, also known as Buck, was born on November 6, 1932 in Montgomery County to the late Lloyd Eads and Martha (Blacker) Eads.

Buck was a man of many talents and passions. He attended Wingate High School, where his intelligence and hard work led him to graduate as the Co-Valedictorian of his class. During his time in high school, Buck was an athlete and played on the baseball team. One of his greatest achievements was leading his team to becoming the Montgomery County Champions during his senior year.

On July 20, 1952, Buck married the love of his life, Joanie Laverne Dale. Their union lasted an incredible 70 years until Joanie's passing on January 14, 2023. Together, they built a life filled with love, joy, and cherished memories.

Buck took great pride in his work in construction, overseeing numerous projects throughout his career. He had a deep love for restoring homes, gardening, and farming. One of Buck's proudest moments was working alongside his father-in-law, Harry Dale, building concrete paving equipment at Pav-Saver in East Moline, Illinois. Together, they constructed the first slip form paver.

Buck will be deeply missed by his two children, Terry (Ron) Johnson and Brad (Laurie) Eads; 8 grandchildren, Grant (Katie) Eads, Cassandra Eads, Jacob (Jessica) Shaffer, Aaron Shaffer, Eli Shaffer, Sharon Lou (Jamie) Bradley, Jennie (Mark) Simison, and Derek Brady; 13 great grandchildren, 3 great-great grandchildren; and a sister, Claressa Perry.

He was preceded in death by his parents; son, Mark Lavon Eads; and his grandson, David Brady.
