Lloyd M. Leibfried, age 71, of Spring Valley, Minn. passed away peacefully at his home in Spring Valley on Thursday, June 19, 2014.

Lloyd was born in Sherburn, Minn. on March 14, 1943, son of Joseph & Florence (Studer) Leibfried. At age 5, his family moved to rural Ostrander, Minn. where Lloyd attended Leroy schools. On April 16, 1966, he married Terry Kay Thon, daughter of Laverne and “Monnie” Webster of Spring Valley. They made their home in Spring Valley where they raised their 3 children. Lloyd worked 19 years as a boiler operator at Land O’ Lakes Coop Creamery in Spring Valley. He then went to work for Rochester Iron and Metal Recycling where he retired in 2010.

Lloyd enjoyed spending time with his family (especially fishing with his grandsons), camping, and gardening. He also had a love for the outdoors and loved tinkering with his 1965 Minneapolis Moline tractor. He also enjoyed antique tractors, tractor pulls, antique car shows and had a small collection of John Deere toy tractors. For those that knew him, they would also say that he loved music, dancing, and was a great story teller with a great sense of humor.

He is survived by his wife of 48 years Terry, of Spring Valley, his daughters Lisa (Donnie) Thompson of Chatfield, Minn., Kelly (Scott) Reiland of Spring Valley, and Cindy (Jeff) Baumler of Savage, Minn., six grandchildren Natalie and Caleb Thompson, Carter and Madison Reiland, Elizabeth and Grace Baumler, siblings Edward Leibfried of Racine, Minn., Kenneth (Gayle) Leibfried of Racine, Kathleen (Ken) Klaes of Bowie, Ariz., Cecelia (Jerry) McCloud of Brownsdale, Minn. and several nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, three brothers, and two sisters.
