He attended schools in Frankville, Luana, and Calmar, Iowa, before moving to Preston where he graduated from high school. He attended Luther College for two years. Cloy was married on October 14, 1950 to Laurice Peterson at Grace Lutheran Church in Preston. He began working for the Hormel Company in Austin in 1949.

After retirement in 1991, Cloy and Laurice enjoyed many travels within the U.S. and abroad, sharing that time with their many friends and family members.

Sports were an important part of Cloy’s life. He participated in basketball, football, and his specialty, baseball, in high school, and continued playing baseball for the Preston town team after high school. His true passions were playing golf and St. Louis Cardinals baseball, and he enthusiastically shared his passion with others.
