Joseph Mallard

August 12, 1933 ~ June 14, 2017

Joseph Lloyd Mallard, 83, of Bozeman, MT, passed away June 14, 2017, of natural causes.

Lloyd was born to the late Charlie and Grace Mallard on August 12, 1933, in New Smyrna Beach, FL.  Lloyd graduated from New Smyrna Beach High School in 1951 and enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in 1952.

While stationed at Lowry AFB near Denver in 1957, Lloyd met Carol Dolezal, and they were married in 1958 in Havre, MT.  Lloyd’s Air Force career took them to several military installations in the United States and Germany through the years.

Lloyd began his Air Force career as an air-crew member on the B-29, B-36 and B-52 bombers.  In 1966, he changed career fields and became an air-traffic controller, which he remained until his retirement in 1979.  He was awarded a Bronze Star medal for meritorious service in Vietnam, plus several other medals that recognized his dedicated service.  Lloyd attained the rank of Chief Master Sergeant before retirement.

After retiring from the military, Lloyd worked at National General Supply in Great Falls for several years and then worked at Big R Supply, also in Great Falls, until fully retiring in 2006.  He enjoyed traveling and visited 29 countries throughout his military career and retirement.  He and Carol volunteered for several years at the Great Falls Visitor Center, and he enjoyed golf in the summer.

Lloyd was a 50-year-plus member of San Jacinto Masonic Lodge in Amarillo, TX; Great Falls Scottish Rite; Amarillo York Rite; Algeria Shrine Temple in Helena; and the Air Force Gunners Association.

He is survived by his wife of 59 years and two sons:  Scott (Jenny) of Belgrade, MT, and Mark (Pat) of Butte, MT.  He is also survived by four grandchildren:  Matt (Halle), Charlotte (Andrew), Jace (Sammi) and Alaina.  He is also survived by two great-grandchildren:  Finley and Kendall.  He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Charlie Ellis Mallard.

A private family service will be held at a later date.
