Lloyd Kemp Eskridge, 70, of Seaford, passed away at the Delaware Hospice Center in Milford, Thursday, March 7, 2013. Mr. Eskridge was born in Salisbury, Md., son of the late Frank C. Eskridge and Hellen C. Eskridge. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brother Frank Eskridge.
Lloyd was employed as the manager of Meherrin Agriculture and Chemical Co., Bridgeville branch. He considered all of his employees members of his family and all of his customers were his friends. He was extremely loyal and fiercely protective of his family and friends. He was honest and honorable and true to his word. His only fault was his lack of diplomacy - if one can call that a fault. Lloyd was dearly loved and will be forever missed by everyone who knew him. He was a graduate of Laurel High School and past president of the Bridgeville Lions Club.
He is survived by his wife Lynne Rose Eskridge; his daughter Teresa Lynne Robinson of Manassas, Va.; granddaughter Heather Syvilla Bronson of Richmond, Va.; one stepson, Vaden David Robinson III of Courtland, Va.; his sister Joyce E. Ferenc and her husband Joseph of Baltimore, Md.; and a brother, Richard 0. Eskridge of Naples, Fla.
Memorial services will be held at 11 a.m., Tuesday March 12, at Union United Methodist Church, Laws Street, Bridgeville. A visitation for family and friends will be held from 6 to 9 p.m., Monday, March 11, at Parsell Funeral Homes & Crematorium, Hardesty Chapel, 202 Laws St., Bridgeville.
Lloyd requested that you make a contribution to the Delaware Hospice Center, 100 Patriots Way, Milford, DE 19963 in his memory.
