Lloyd M. Leibfried, 71, of Spring Valley, died peacefully at his home in Spring Valley on Thursday, June 19, 2014.

He was born in Sherburn on March 14, 1943, son of Joseph and Florence (Studer) Leibfried.

At age 5, his family moved to rural Ostrander where he 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 three children.

He 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.

He 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 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 storyteller 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, Kelly (Scott) Reiland of Spring Valley and Cindy (Jeff) Baumler of Savage; six grandchildren, Natalie and Caleb Thompson, Carter and Madison Reiland and Elizabeth and Grace Baumler; siblings, Edward Leibfried of Racine, Kenneth (Gayle) Leibfried of Racine, Kathleen (Ken) Klaes of Bowie, Ariz., and Cecelia (Jerry) McCloud of Brownsdale and several nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by three brothers and two sisters.

Funeral services for him were held Saturday, June 21, at St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Spring Valley, with the Rev. Marreddy Pothireddy officiating. Burial will take place at a later date.
