Obituary for Lloyd Ray Draper

Lloyd Ray Draper, of Richardson, Texas, passed away on March 18, 2021, at the age of 70. Lloyd was born on February 10, 1951, in Fort Worth, Texas. He graduated from RL Paschal High School in 1968. He went on to attend Texas Christian University where he was a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity and was an offensive lineman for the Horned Frogs. Lloyd graduated in 1972, with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree and became a proud member of the TCU Lettermen’s Association. He met Mary
(Johnson) Draper while he was at TCU and the two married in 1973. Lloyd and Mary moved to Dallas where he started his career in Land Title Insurance. Lloyd served as the President of the Texas Land Title
Association in 1990-1991 and was TLTA’s “Title Man of the Year” in 1993.

Lloyd is survived by his wife of 48 years, Mary Johnson Draper. He is also survived by his sons, Stephen and Scott Draper, Stephen’s wife Ann, and their three children, William, Quinn, and Benjamin. He is also survived by his brother, Mike Draper.

Lloyd, or “Lloydo” as his friends and family knew him, had an avid love for TCU Football. Lloydo never missed a game or a tailgate, and some of his happiest memories were competing on the grind iron and watching from the stands with the purple faithful.

During his Title career, Lloydo was well known for his larger than life personality and the passion he brought to the industry for more than 40 years. The life-long friendships he made were some of his most cherished.

Lloydo led a happy life, filled with family and friends. He was the life of the party and never missed an opportunity to hit the dance floor. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather, and he will be forever missed.

A Celebration of Lloydo’s life will be held on Friday, March 26, 2021, from 3:30-6:00PM at 1118 Pueblo, Richardson, Texas. Memorial gifts may be made in Lloyd’s name to the TCU Frog Club at or c/o TCU Frog Club, TCU Box 297140, Fort Worth, TX, 76129.

I was shocked, like everyone else to hear of Lloyd's passing.  I knew Lloyd from Westcliff Elementary and always thought highly of him.  I pray he rest in peace now.  He will be missed.

I'm still in shock after hearing the news about Lloyd. All of us remember his zest for life and always enjoying it to the fullest. He will be missed by so many. Let's all stay safe, well and make every day special. Billy

I too am shocked to hear of Lloyd's passing. He was one of those guys that you somehow believed would be around forever; such was his presence. It's weird for me to call him Lloyd because after we all graduated and scattered to the winds and came back around for the reunions and planning I started calling him Cotton and he always responded as if I'd called him that all our lives, which for us went all the way back to Westcliff. I never called him by anything else all these years.
He will be sorely missed.

How can that be?  Lloyd, a “Man in Full” slips away with no fanfare, opposite of the life he lived.  

You can always tell the greatness of someone, by the huge void they leave   Lloyd left craters in our hearts.  

Heaven got them a good one, no doubt.  Now, when it thunders, I’ll be reminded, that’s Lloyd up there entertaining the troops  

Rest In Peace dear friend.

So shocked to hear of Lloyd's passing. Hard to accept the death of a friend so full of life and outgoing no longer being there at our celebrations roaring with laughter or enteraining us by "gatoring" on the dance floor. Rest in Peace and give a shoutout to all those other classmates who have gone on and awaiting our own arrival.

I pray for the comfort of your family.

Lloyd was a Westcliff and neighborhood friend first and then through PHS. His passing is sad but a wake up call to us how short this life is. Love your family and friends every day just like Lloyd did. He would tell us that. God's peace and comfort to his family. David Bloxom

.The. beauty of the eloquent tributes from Lloyds buddies tells the story. He was a force of nature in the best way. Many don't know how he worked with Debbie and the reunion committee to ensure that the group kept going. . I always looked forward to visiting with him when I was able to get to town for a meeting. These are special people who have kept the fire burning    My heart is with his family and his lifelong friends in whose memories he will always loom large. Memories ever in our hearts remain.  We miss you Lloyd.

I was saddened to hear of Lloyds passing. I knew Lloyd since Westcliff elementary scholl. One thing I noticed in the comments sections was how many of his friends had known him for so long. Once Lloyd made a friend- the friendships remained -he was a man you could not forget. Lloyd was one of the most sincere persons I ever met and I beliveve it was his sincerity that endeared him to so many. He will be remembered. He will be missed.
