Obituary/Notice

Lloyd A. Hetz, age 90, of Girard, was released from his earthly body to begin life anew in his eternal home with Jesus Christ on Monday, April 1, 2019.  We long for the day we will see him again.

He was born at home in Millcreek, 1811 Fairfax Ave., which is now E/W Runway at Erie Int’l Airport, on December 17, 1928, a son of the late Perry E. and Laura Zister Hetz.

Lloyd attended Millcreek High School.  He served 20 years with the Army and Coast Guard and was very proud of his service career.

Lloyd joined his dad as a residential custom painter in the family business, P.E. Hetz & Son Painting and Decorating as a teenager.  He also worked at Smith Meter for 20 years.

He was a former member of Westminster United Presbyterian Church and a member of the Girard American Legion.  Lloyd enjoyed dancing, fishing, hunting, traveling, tinkering and spending time with his family.  His only regret was that he didn’t learn to fly a plane.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his first wife, Jean M. Crocker Hetz; his brothers, Harold, Norman and Arthur Hetz; as well as a grandson, Nathan Hetz.

Lloyd is survived by his wife of 12 years, Susan Cleary Hetz; his children, Sharyn Michalli (Eugene) of SC, David Hetz (Bonnita) of OK, Lori Lohrer (Sam) of OH and Eric Hetz (Tammy) of Lake City; step children: Debbie  Peyton (Rick) of Cranesville, Darlene Klemm and Denise Raffensberger (Jeff), all of Girard; grandchildren, Mychele Odell, Kyle Michali, Jennifer Stephens, Sarah Hetz, Shawna Howard, Scott Wade and Trisha Wade; step grandchildren: Daniel Peyton and Hannah Klemm; great grandchildren: Blake and Jayde Stephens; as well as many nieces and nephews.
