    Lloyd Eldon Hittle, Sr. (1924-2012), resident of Lodi, crossed home plate into heaven on March 3, 2012.

    He was the loving husband to Bernice Hittle for 65 years, and beloved father of three children: Gerald (Mary), Joanne (Jimmie), and Lloyd Jr. (Gayle). Dearest Poppo to Marc, David (Caresse), Dusti (Zak), Sandi, Jeremy (Sandra), Rachel, and Amy (Steve). Great-Grandfather to Marcus, Akayla, Haylee, and Cody. Lloyd was born in Acampo and lived his life in the Lodi area.

    He served the U.S. Army in the Pacific during World War II.

    He played professional baseball 1946-1954 for the Stockton Ports, Oakland Oaks, Bremerton Bluejackets, Washington Senators, Chattanooga Lookouts, and the Hollywood Stars. He later played semi-pro ball with Lodi Guild Wine.

    He worked thirty years for Pacific Telephone while he and Bernice raised their family. Lloyd loved the outdoors, and family vacations usually were spent camping and fishing.

    My tribute to Hittle. I had the opportunity to interview him (through his wife because he was hard of hearing at that time) and she gave me some nice tidbits about his career.
