James Michael Lloyd

Born in suburban, Portland Oregon on Thanksgiving Day in 1950. Jim was an extraordinary person. He was kind, loving, compassionate, patient, genuine, vibrant, strong and brave. His smile was for all, he never met a stranger. His integrity and giving spirit were legendary and shown through every aspect of his real estate career. Ensuring his clients were always well taken care of was more important to Jim than the sale itself. His zest for life was an inspiration to many. His love and devotion for family, friends and community was incomparable as was his love for fitness and the outdoors. He was a standout athlete, an avid sailor, runner, hiker, biker, swimmer and skier. ALS hit him in 2017. He fought the fight against this brutal disease with courage, grace and determination. He made his transition November 18, 2020, at home in Kirkland just before his 70th birthday. Kristen, Berna, Amanda and Savana were with him as he took his last breath and drifted peacefully to his forever rest. Free of ALS. Free to bike, hike, run and swim in paradise.

He is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Kristen; Sister Berna Kieler and brother in-law David Debin; Daughter Amanda Rothe and son-in-law Daylon Rothe, Granddaughter Saylor James Rothe; Daughter Savana Lloyd.
