Lloyd W. Disher, 98, of Winston-Salem, NC went to live with our Lord in Heaven on November 14 at Arbor Acres Retirement Community. He was born in West Salem (Broad Street) December 27, 1918 to Flora Louise Harrison and Cicero Columbus Disher. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Anthony Hamilton (Mike), Bynum Vance (Bill) as well as infant twin brothers.
Lloyd is survived by his wife of 64 years, Hazel Saunders Disher, originally from Swan Quarter, NC; son, L. Wayne Disher Jr.; daughter Suzanne Disher Miller and husband Robert (Bob); granddaughter, Jennifer Miller; grandson, Robert Miller Jr.; nieces Debbie Prendergast, Camille McDowell, Karen Nolan, Beth Bailey, Lynne Young; nephews Bill and Tony Disher.
He attended Wiley, Reynolds High School and The Citadel, in Charleston, SC. Lloyd studied mechanical drawing and applied his skills early in the family business by building houses here in Winston-Salem. He was bookkeeper for what eventually became Commercial Industries. He retired in 1999. When he wasn't working, Lloyd enjoyed hunting, fishing, golf, gardening and woodworking. On March 25,1945, Lloyd transferred his membership from Christ Moravian Church to Home Moravian Church, where he was an active member. He promptly joined the Men's Bible School Class with his father and two brothers, and later served as President of the class. He taught Sunday School, helped with the Youth Fellowship Program, served as an usher and was a sexton. He drove the church van in the early years of Salemtowne. Lloyd helped serve Easter morning breakfast to band members then ushered along side his brothers at the Easter Sunrise Service until he was no longer able to physically do so. He enjoyed church band music and attended the Salem Band Concerts at Christmas each year. Music was an inspiration to Lloyd. He enjoyed a variety of genres found in his old record collection, multiple music boxes and his ever present radio.
Lloyd was a wonderful husband, father, father-in-law and grandfather.
The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation to the staff of Arbor Acres for their loving care of Lloyd.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Sunnyside Ministries (319 Haled Street, Winston-Salem, NC 27127) or Home Moravian Church (529 Church Street South, Winston-Salem, NC 27101).

I just wanted to express my deepest sympathies. When we lose our dear loved ones it confirms that the time we spent with them was priceless and that they are truly irreplaceable. I’m sure this is a very difficult time for you. With that in mind, please know that you can draw comfort from our Heavenly Father. He’s promised that, very soon, he will address this issue. He will make death "no more” here on Earth and also bring back our loved ones that have already "fallen asleep" so we have a chance to be reunited with them (2Cor 1:3,4 Rev 21:3,4 John 5:28,29 & 1 Thess 4:14). These are promises that we can trust. Again, please accept my sincere condolences
My thoughts and prayers are with ALL of you! May you find peace in the love and care you provided for Mr. Disher.

Out thoughts and prayers are with the family. We did not know Lloyd but remember him sitting in front of us at church. He will be missed by all.
My thoughts are with family of Mr. Disher. I had the pleasure of sharing a small amount of time with Mr. Disher towards the end of his life here on earth and I always enjoyed his smile and easy going spirit. I wish the wonderfully devoted family happy thoughts regarding their loving husband, father, grandfather and friend.
With sincerest love and admiration,
(Prn nurse at Arbor Acres)
