Obituary of Lloyd Howard Voight, II
Lloyd Howard Voight II, 75, of Virginia Beach, VA, passed away on September 19, 2022 after a long battle with scleroderma of the lungs.
Howard was born on September 27, 1946, to Lloyd Howard Voight I and Mavis Josephine Voight (née deSouza) in Tacoma, Washington. Being that his father was in the military most of Howard’s young life, he lived in many places throughout the world before his father retired from his military career in Suitland, Maryland. After graduating from Suitland High School in 1966, Howard had a brief stint at the University of Maryland before enlisting in the Navy during the Vietnam War. He served in the Navy for four years and was a radioman on a destroyer in the Mediterranean. After his discharge, Howard returned to the University of Maryland and completed his BS degree in Transportation. While a student at UM, he sold programs for the Washington Redskins (for 10 cents each).
Upon graduation, Howard landed his first job as a Station Master for Federal Express, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and was one of the first drivers for FedEx in DC. He continued a lengthy career in sales within the transportation industry. He was a true entrepreneur and had many of his own businesses. He continued learning throughout his career, taking classes on coding and website development at the local community college. Howard loved to travel and had a real zest for life and sense of humor.
Howard was preceded in death by his parents, Lloyd H. and Mavis J. Voight. He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Linda Eileen Voight (née Ward); three children: Natalie Carey (husband Marshall) of Washington, DC, Allison Voight of North Carolina, and Maxwell Voight of Virginia Beach, VA; four grandchildren - Matthew Voight (14), Declan Carey (8), Grant Carey (6), and Sohpia Voight (4); two sisters: Tricia Voight (husband James) of Fallbrook, CA, and Cheryl Vaughn (husband John) of Washington, NC; one brother: Bradley Voight (wife Mary Josephine) of Bowie, MD and many nieces and nephews.
