LEESBURG,Virginia – Lloyd W. Sutherland, Jr., 86, passed away peacefully at his home on Friday, May 11, 2018. He was born in Portage, Maine on June 2, 1931, a son of Lloyd and Vera Sutherland.
Lloyd served in the U.S. Army from 1948 to 1952. From 1950-1952 he was stationed in Northern Japan during the Korean War in an anti-aircraft unit. During that period he asked the Lord to save him at a chapel on base, and his life was changed forever. After finishing his military service he graduated from Bob Jones University and earned his master’s degree from Columbia Bible College.
Most of his working career was for the Federal Government. He was a U.S. Customs Inspector on the borders of Maine and Texas and in the Port of Baltimore, and completed his government service as a Senior Immigration Examiner at the central office in Washington, D.C. After he retired he opened his own business as an immigration consultant, which continued as long as his health permitted.
Lloyd is survived by his wife, Doris of Leesburg, VA, three sons: David (wife Deanna) of Hong Kong, Dan (wife Elise), and Dale (wife Patty) both of Virginia; three sisters: Jean St. Pierre, Sandra Porter, and Gail Sutherland, all of Ashland, Maine. He is also survived by nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
Lloyd was predeceased by his parents, two sisters, Bessie and Joyce, and three brothers, Robert, Wayne and Jack.
A graveside committal service was held at the Portage Municipal Cemetery on June 4, 2018 at 4:00 p.m.
