Lloyd Arthur was born on March 23, 1929, to Leander and Emma (Olson) Lindholm on the family farm in Prairie View Township, Wilkin County, MN. He met the love of his life, Ingrid Meyhuber in Barnesville and they were married June of 1952. Lloyd and Ingrid farmed near Barnesville and have five children: Gail, Greg, Debra, Jim, and Brian.
Lloyd's true heart was a farmer. He was the man of many talents who also worked in insurance, a crop adjuster, and at the potato house. He loved his gardens, dogs, playing Farkle, corn hole, and fishing trips with his family. Lloyd shared a passion of music, singing in the church choir for almost 70 years, and singing in the Community Easter Cantata's, calling square dancing, and singing for the "old" folks. He enjoyed wintering with Ingrid in Texas. He was a member of St. James Church in Barnesville.
He is survived by five children: Gail (Larry) Smith, Cross Lake, MN; Greg (Deb) Lindholm, Franklin, OH; Debra Mormile, Minneapolis, MN; Jim (Monica) Lindholm, Barnesville, MN; Brian (Erin) Lindholm, Champlin, MN; 17 grandchildren: Jason (Shelly) Braaten, Josh (Emily) Braaten, Cindy (Greg) Swenson, Kelly Hazelwood, Tony (Becca) Smith, Tamara Jo (Kevin) Richards, Christopher Lindholm, Bethany (Devin) Bailey, Sarah (Pat) Hendrick, David (Callie) Lindholm, Jess McMillan, Garrett Mormile, Courtney (JR) Cossette, Candace (Matt) Aakre, Colten Claus, Emily Lindholm, Eric Lindholm, and 20 great grandchildren: Brandt, Rolland, Ryan, Kolton, Makenzie, Joshua, Jonas, Annica, Pryce, Erica, Jenna, Gaby, Nolan, Lucy, Liviana, Lincoln, Carter, Lucy, Gavin and Jenna.
