Lloyd H. Kok
Lloyd Henry Kok, age 88, died Sunday, April 17, 2016, in Quincy. Lloyd was born on March 28, 1928, in Douglas County, S.D., to parents John and Lena Kok. He lived in South Dakota until he met and married Grace Honcoop on Dec. 30, 1958. They made their home in Lynden for 15 years before moving to Quincy, where they lived for the past 42 years.
Lloyd was a social, active man who was deeply involved in his church (Quincy Christian Reformed Church) and was a founding member of the Quincy Kiwanis Club. He also served his country in the U.S. Army from 1952 to 1954. He could also be found working at Farmer-Consumer Awareness Days for many years before declining health made him slow down. His family and friends will always remember him as a kind and gentle person.
Lloyd is survived by his wife, Grace, and three children, Lavonne (Henry) Bansberg, Larry (Shelby) Kok and Laureen (Ben) Hernandez. He is survived by his grandchildren, Michael (fiancé Kelsey) Kok, Keisha Urwin, Dakota Kok, Joshua Bansberg, Jacob Bansberg, Julia Hernandez and Matthew Hernandez and a great-granddaughter, Brynlee Kok. He is also survived by sisters, Evelyn DeRuiter and Doris Jensen, and numerous nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, John and Lena; brothers Orin and Casey; and sisters Herena and Hulda.
