Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Lloyd Duane Frey, age 91, of Hastings, passed away on June 27, 2018 at Thornapple Manor with family by his side.

Lloyd was born August 21, 1926, in Banfield to Julius and Ruth Frey. He graduated in 1943 from Hastings High School.

Lloyd married Shirley Wine in March 1946; they lived at the four corners of Lacey before moving to Long Lake in Delton, where they resided for 47 years. Lloyd worked at Eaton Mfg., Oliver Aircraft, Clark Equipment, KHS Air Freight, and many service stations/auto repair garages before retiring and working in his own shop on small engines.

Lloyd enjoyed many adventures traveling, fishing up north, camping and yet his favorite place to be was right at home on Long Lake. Lloyd and Shirley enjoyed meeting friends and customers at the local restaurants in the Delton area.

Lloyd was preceded in death by his wife Shirley in January 2018; his parents; infant daughter, Suzanne; brother, Harold Frey; and sister-in-law, Barb Frey.

He is survived by daughters, Linda Irey, Sandi Christie, and Marge Loew; sons, Mike (Deb) Frey, and Ken Frey; grandchildren, Jeff Loew, Heidi (Brian) Artz, Heather (Jeff) Kennedy, Jen (Tracy) Frey, Ken (Wendy) Loew, Hope (Robert) Horton, Tori (Pat) Mascho, Shawn (Jody) Frey, Mindy Westra, and Mickey (Marty) Loew; great-grandchildren, Janell Loew, Padriac Artz, Justin Kennedy, Pat (Gabi) Loew, Connor Loew, Dylan Kennedy, Kayla Loew, Lincoln Artz, Ryelee Mascho, Sara Horton, Caleb Frey, Elijah Mascho, Joshua Frey, Lisa Horton, Lily Mascho, Teague Westra, and Madelyn Frey; great-great-grandchildren, Violet and Daniel Loew, Jeremy, Johnny and Jasmine Artz, and Emmett Artz; as well as many nieces and nephews.

There will not be a service at this time.

We wish to thank the staff at Thornapple Manor and Great Lakes Caring Hospice for their care, comfort, and compassion.
