Obituary for Loyd Chastain Jr.

Loyd  Chastain Jr.

Loyd Esburn Chastain Jr., of Canon City, went to be with his Lord and Savior February 4, 2018 after a lengthy illness. He was born April 9, 1931 in Cotton Center, Texas to Loyd and Myrtle (Asbill) Chastain. He grew up in Lubbock, Texas where he graduated from Lubbock High School.
He was a member of the Texas National Guard where he qualified as a sharp shooter. He worked several jobs prior to moving to La Junta, Colorado. There, he purchased his own business, Tom’s Wholesale Snack Foods, in 1968. He remained in this business for 42 years while purchasing the Tom's distributorship in Colorado Springs along the way.
Loyd married Bernice Hill in Clovis, New Mexico in1950. God blessed them with four children. His business provided the family needs, but Bernice (the Lil’ Darlin’) was the reason he woke up every day. He loved his family and he also loved World Wide Wrestling. Loyd was a great guitar picker and played at the Royal Gorge Manor for his friends. He was a member of the Canon Community Baptist Church in Canon City. After his retirement he and Bernice joined the RVer's and traveled around the country in their motor home for several years before settling in Canon City.
Loyd was a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and loving friend to many people. To say he will be greatly missed is grave understatement because his passing will leave a void in the world of all who knew him.
Loyd is survived by his wife, Bernice; two daughters, Debbie (Larry) Stephens of Canon City, Shelley (Lonnie) of Lake Ozark, Missouri; son, Shawn (Kathy) Chastain of Canon City; five grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Minnie (Finnis) Hill; and daughter, Marla Benson, who he called Molly Kay. She welcomed him into the arms of Jesus. God speed to you, Dolphin.
Memorial service, 11:00 a.m. Thursday, February 8th at Canon Community Baptist, 1111 Monroe Canon City, Colorado
