Middleton, MA - Lloyd F. Ballard of Middleton, husband of Martha (McGoldrick) Ballard, passed peacefully at his home, surrounded by love, on Dec. 5, 2018.
Lloyd was born on Oct. 5, 1920, in Boston’s neighborhood of Jamaica Plain, to Austin and Esther Ballard. His family settled in Middleton, and Lloyd ultimately made a home in the same town with Martha, his wife of nearly 70 years (formerly of Lynn), and seven children at a residence on Riverview Drive.
He and his two brothers were called up to serve at the outset of WWII. Lloyd served first with the MP Escort Guard, and later with the 82nd Airborne. All three brothers returned home safely.
A carpenter by trade, Lloyd was skilled in many other areas. His career included first working as a pipe fitter at Pitco Frialator Co., and later at McGoldrick Construction & Builder, Inc., in Lynn, as a member of the Carpenter’s Union until he retired.
Lloyd is survived by his wife, Martha; and his sister Pauline (Ballard) Kolodziej. He is predeceased by his brothers, Wayne and Gerald; his sister Cora (Ballard) MacLean; his daughter Kathy (Ballard) Faino; and his sons, Kevin and Sean. Surviving children include Brian Ballard and his wife, Lisa; Maureen (Ballard) Haley and her husband, Jerry Gilchrist; Kent Ballard and his partner Shelby Dean; and Brett Ballard. He is also survived by numerous grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Also of mention is Lori Maytum, a long-time family friend who has been lovingly supportive to Lloyd and the family.
