On October 18, 1986 he married the former Susan Canada in Phoenix, AZ. He and Susan moved to Janesville in 1991, and he opened his private practice in the Hayes Block, specializing in Criminal and Family Law. He retired in 2013.
Lloyd loved cooking and gardening, and enjoyed raising prairie plants in his garden. He had a lifelong interest in Frank Lloyd Wright and his architecture, and he and Susan traveled around the country to see his work. He was an avid reader, of everything from LA Noire Fiction to the American and European Classics. Lloyd never met a cat he didn’t like, and he adopted many that showed up as strays. His family meant everything to him, and he loved being able to spend as much time as he could with his wife and son.
He is survived by his wife, Susan; his son, Jacob T. Oberman, of Janesville; his brother, Jay Oberman; and by many other extended family and friends.
Funeral services will be held at 2:00 P.M. on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at the WHITCOMB-LYNCH FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION SERVICES. Burial will follow in Oak Hill Cemetery. Visitation will take place from 12:00 until 2:00 P.M. on Wednesday at the FUNERAL HOME.
Susan and Jacob would like to extend their sincerest thanks and appreciation to the fine staff of Agrace Hospice and the Agrace Center for Hospice & Palliative Care, for the wonderful care given to Lloyd, and the compassion and support shown to them during Lloyd’s brief time in their care.
