Lloyd Henry Hintze was born on the family farm in Sioux Valley Township, Jackson County, Minnesota the son of Leonard and Minnie (Fick) Hintze on May 21, 1919. He attended school at Sioux Valley, MN. After completing the eighth grade he farmed with his father. On September 14, 1938 he was united in marriage to Arlene Ruby Raveling in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. After their marriage they moved to Sioux Valley, Minnesota and began farming and raising their family. Lloyd continued to farm with Arlene's help. For a brief time in the 1950's Lloyd and Arlene ran the Log Cabin Steakhouse in Sioux Valley, before returning to their love of farming. Around 1964 they began traveling to Florida for the winters. They continued to travel there every winter for the next 30 some years. They then made Las Vegas their winter home for many years. They loved to travel together, seeing almost every state. On April 12, 2012 Arlene passed away. Lloyd missed her deeply, and on June 16, 2012 Lloyd too passed away at Sunset Hospice Cottage in Worthington, Minnesota at the age of 93 years, and twenty-six days.
Lloyd was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Sioux Valley, his entire married life. Lloyd loved to fish. He had enjoyed fishing with Arlene; they began their fishing trips many years ago with trips to Northern Minnesota. Since then they have fished many places with their family and lifelong friends, Mel and Sis Reimers, including the Missouri River, Oregon River and the Oregon Coast for Tuna, and Florida. Arlene and Lloyd would have many 4th of July fireworks celebrations on their farm, which the grandchildren really enjoyed.
Lloyd loved the land, from full time farming it when he was younger and helping out on the farm up until he was 90 years old. He also enjoyed gardening with Arlene throughout their years together. They loved to share their prize winning watermelon and muskmelon with all of their family and friends.
