Lloyd Albert Siefke, 80 of Libby passed away Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017. He was born Dec. 24, 1936, in Libby to Joe and Elaine (Templin) Siefke.
Lloyd grew up and attended school through the eighth grade. He worked for the railroad until he was inducted into the Army in May 1960, where he served in Korea and was honorably discharged in 1962. Afterward he worked for J. Neilís, St. Regis and Champion and retired from Stimsons after 37 years of working in the lumber mills.
