Lloyd Henry Moon, 77, passed away Thursday, Nov. 30 in Petaluma, California.

Lloyd was born, September 1, 1940 in Minnesota to Ruth and Earl Moon. When he was two, Lloyd and his family came to Marin County. He graduated from Sir Francis Drake High School in 1957. After graduating, he began working at Marin Town and Country Club as a lifeguard. Lloyd also began working at the Fairfax post office when he was eighteen years old. It was there that he served as the postmaster for over 44 years. At the age of 21, Lloyd began bartending at Deer Park Villa. In the years to follow, he would ultimately work there alongside his children. When not working, Lloyd was an active and dedicated member of the Odd Fellows Club. In fact, he was the Grand Poobah at the Marin Odd Fellows. Additionally, he was a loyal footprinter.

After a mutual friend introduced them, Ordell Tartaglia and Lloyd wed at Saint Rita’s in 1963. Over the course of their marriage, the couple welcomed 4 children into their home on Gregory Drive. His children remember him as a kind, gentle, and humorous father. His nine grandchildren will always remember his love of pie, coffee, and telling jokes (specifically, of the blonde variety!).

Ordell and Lloyd have been married for 54 years and she refers to her husband as the most patient, loving, and kind man she has ever known. Lloyd is survived by his loving wife, Ordell; four children, Angie (Tom) Hyland, Arlene Moon, Rick (Kathy) Moon, and Alisa (Don) Shannon; nine grandchildren, Cavin, Shannyn, Melynee, Makayla, Nick, Shealin, Hunter, Colten, and Liam; one great grandchild, Ella; and one brother Leeland (Penny) Moon.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated, Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Rita’s Church, 100 Marinda Drive, Fairfax, with reception to follow at Deer Park Villa, 367 Bolinas Road, Fairfax. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Lloyd’s life.

Condolences may be sent to 1905 Bristol St. in Petaluma, CA 94954.

The family would like to thank all caregivers and hospital staff for their efforts throughout the years. In particular, the family would like to thank Arlene and Melynee for their time and care for Lloyd.
