Lloyd Ivan Wingert

Graveside services will be held on Sunday, September 11, 2022, at 2 p.m. at the Clinton Cemetery. Lloyd passed away Sunday, August 28, 2022, at his home.

Lloyd was born in the rural Baldwin area on May 7, 1927, to Jesse and Elsie Elizabeth (Peterson) Wingert. He was the fourth of nine children. He married Doris Cox on April 29, 1951, at the home of Doris’ parents.

Lloyd retired from FMC in 1992 after 28 years of service. Prior to that, he worked at the McConnell Machinery and Lawrence Asphalt. Throughout his life, Lloyd also farmed in rural Douglas County. After retirement, Lloyd worked summers for the Wakarusa Township Road Crew when needed.

He was happiest when helping others. Lloyd loved working in his shop and not only repaired tractors, lawnmowers, chainsaws, etc., but also built trailers, log splitters, box blades, etc. Welding was one of his talents that he spent many years doing. There were many times when pieces of machinery needed repair but were so old there would be no parts available. So, Lloyd made the part needed to fix the machinery. Neighbors knew Lloyd’s shop was usually open and he was available to fix what they needed, when they needed it!

Lloyd was very devoted to his family, and they brought him great joy. He never missed the chance to watch baseball, softball, and volleyball games whenever his kids or grandkids had games. He continued to enjoy watching his two great-grandsons when they started playing ball. He was not just interested in sports, but in anything they did!

He was preceded in death by his wife, Doris, his parents, and brothers: Leo, Merle, Gene, Clarence, Jimmy and Alfred and a son-in-law, Jeff Miller..

Survivors include a daughter, Janice Miller, a son Larry (Lynn) Wingert, four grandchildren, Kyle (Shelbie) Miller, Troy (Jennifer) Wingert, Emily (Josh) Pritchard, and Matthew Wingert and two great grandsons, Caden and Hudson Pritchard and his brother, Carroll (Donna) Wingert and a sister, Katherine (Wingert) Koehler.

Memorial contributions are suggested to Douglas County Visiting Nurses, sent in care of Rumsey-Yost Funeral Home, P.O. Box 1260, Lawrence, Kansas 66044.

As Lloyd would say….”Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

To Janice & family
I am saddened to hear of the passing of Lloyd, such a great man! I wish I could have been able to attend his funeral. Lloyd was always so kind and helpful to me over the 40 years I had known him. He helped me get my first Allis Chalmers tracktor up and running and always had enough fire wood to keep me warm in the winter.
He will be deeply missed! Prayers to your family.

Janice, Larry and rest of family, I just got back in town and found out about Lloyd, so sorry for your loss, I worked with Lloyd at FMC for many years, he was a great friend and co-worker. My prayers and thoughts are with you.

From Sherrie Wingert-James...

Janice I’m so so sorry we missed it! It wasn’t for the lack of trying. When you said Pleasant Grove Cemetery I just assumed that’s where it was. Of course I didn’t think to check the obituary where it said Clinton Lake Cemetery! I’m so sorry I wasn’t more prepared. I wanted to see you and everyone else. I don’t want the rest of the family to think I didn’t care enough to show up! That’s not the case at all! I hope to talk to you tonight! Love you and Uncle Lloyd!

Janice, Nancy and I are sorry for your loss. Lloyd was such a help to me when we first moved in to be your neighbor. He disced my weeds, and was always good to answer questions. One of our fondest memories is watching Kyle and Emily feed our catfish and and Rocky. Our prayers are with you and yours.

Larry so sorry for your loss. Your family will be in our prayers.

From Bert and Marge Rowell...

Lloyd is so sadly missed in the neighborhood. He was the best neighbor anyone could wish for. He would do anything for you and more, often without ever being asked. But don’t ask to BORROW anything from him. Like the wise man he was, he knew that tools borrowed developed their own walking legs! Janice and Larry our thoughts and prayers are with you. May all the happy memories last for ever. Your Dad will never be forgotten.
