    Lloyd M. Ilgen (“Pappy”), 85, of Potters Mills, PA, entered into eternal peace on Thursday, September 4, 2014, at the UPMC Trauma and Stroke Center in Altoona.  He was born on March 15, 1929, in Tylersville, PA, to the late William and Myra (Dress) Ilgen.  He met his future wife, Shirley A. Weaver, in 1954 while she was a senior at the Sugar Valley Area High School.  They began dating after her graduation, were married on December 19, 1954, and immediately set up residence in Potters Mills, PA, where they lived until her death on August 5, 2012.  
    After serving in the Army, Lloyd then went to work for the Pennsylvania Fish Commission from which he retired after 41 years of service.  
    His favorite current activities included bowling on several leagues, Grange Fair and carnivals (and hot sausage sandwiches), attending sporting events, hot tea with lots of sugar, and spending time with his family and friends. In his healthier/younger days, he and Shirley enjoyed growing crops and fruits, traveling (with their favorite trips being those to Germany), attending sporting events, and – of course – their children’s and grandchildren’s numerous activities.  Lloyd also was an avid outdoorsman who hunted, fished, and trapped.
    Lloyd is survived by three children: Marvin of Howard, PA; Dennis (Belinda) of Greeley, Colorado; and Patricia Corbett Hamel (Karl “Mike”) of Pleasant Gap, PA.  He is also survived by his beloved grandchildren, Patrick W. Corbett, III, Esquire, who moved back to the area several years ago to live with his grandparents as their primary caretaker, and Daniel Corbett of Pleasant Gap, PA, who also moved back to the area to be close to his grandparents and also help with their needs as they aged.  “Pappy” is also survived by grandchildren, Brandon (Anastasia) Ilgen of New Mexico and Sean (Haley) Ilgen of Washington, as well as several step-grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.  Other survivors include his sister, Thelma Maser of Florida, and numerous members of his “in-law” Weaver family.    
    In addition to his wife and parents, Lloyd was predeceased by three brothers (Laron, John, and Thomas) and three sisters (Anna, Alemena, and Irene).    
    Visitation will be on Monday, September 8, 2014, at the Kader-Neff Funeral Home, 135 W. Main Street, Howard, PA.  Public visitation will be from 6-8 p.m. with a brief service held immediately afterward to which everyone is welcome.  Graveside service will be held on Tuesday, September 9, 2014, at 11 a.m. at the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Loganton, PA.

Patty and family - My sincerest condolences. I have many fond memories of your father and mother when they were my babysitter! Now, more recently, I had enjoyed seeing your father attend PV sporting events. I have no doubt that he and your mother are enjoying their time together. Live in the memories!

My sincere condolences for the family of Lloyd. I have many memories of him while working for the Fish and Boat Commission. One in particular stands out was the chicken he tended while hatch house man at Pleasant Gap hatchery.
