Heaven One

Nate Barbour

This posting was sent with an extremely heavy heart. Blue Knights L.E.M.C Maryland Chapter 1 has lost an incredible Blue Knights Brother of the utmost and highest order.

Our beloved Nate Barbour, accompanied by his brother in the knighthood and dear friend Henry Seppi, made it to the 2015 Pigs On The Beach. 

Brother Seppi advised this writer that Nate insisted on attending with the ongoing health concerns and discomforts withstanding.

I was touched in a most profound manner to have spoken with Nate, shake his hand embracing in those special hugs only Nate could give. Nate's gentle bearing and memory will always occupy a prominent place in my heart.

Ride with Pride our beloved Knight in Heaven One. 

I will not say goodbye, simply said I will meet you along the road of Heaven One. Please keep a watch for me !

Signed Brother Robert L. Freeman

A Life to be Remembered

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful." II Timothy 4:7

Lloyde Andrew England, born to the late Clyde and Sallie (Jamieson) on April 25, 1934 in Washington, D.C., departed his earthly life after a lengthy illness. He was baptized at an early age at Macedonia Baptist Church, Arlington, VA.

Lloyde was an only child. He graduated from Armstrong High School in Washington, D.C. where he met Hester B. Lewis. They married in 1954, had seven children, and lived in Arlington, VA. He spent most of his career working for Capitol Cab Cooperative Association in Washington, D.C., where he was a representative on the Taxi Cab Commission, member advocate, board member and driver. Before joining Capitol Cab, he worked for Greyhound and Maloney Concrete. Lloyde was also a certified mechanic and enjoyed working on cars, especially Fords.

Lloyde grew up having close relationships with his cousins and life-long friends. He enjoyed the freedom of the open road and developed an enthusiasm for riding motorcycles, Harley’s in particular. He was a proud member of the Blue Knights International Law Enforcement Motor Cycle Club, MD1 Chapter. Lloyde was a courageous survivor of the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon.

Lloyde was a family man and a caring son, husband, father, and grandfather. He was predeceased by his wife Hester and son Lloyde England II. He is survived by his children Cerise England Thrift, Michael (Julie), Nancy (Marion) England-Adams, Timothy, Phyllis, and Florence; grandchildren Michael England Jr., Nicole, Erica, and William Walker, Lloyde England III, Mark Lewis II, Nathaniel Tate, Kendra England-Combs; 13 great grandchildren, nine great-great grandchildren, five nieces and nephews, special friend Shirley Hughes and step-daughter Felecia Hughes-Overton and a host of relatives, friends, and club members.
