April 26, 1965 – February 29, 2020

   Lloyd C. Apricio passed away at his home in Black Forest, Colorado on February 29, 2020.  He was a lifelong resident of the Colorado Springs area.

Lloyd was born on April 26, 1965 to Casey Apricio and Susan (Aragon) Martinez in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  He graduated from Coronado High School.  He married the love of his life, Rosemary Thiele, in May of 1993 in Colorado Springs.

   After graduating from high school Lloyd worked in a cabinet shop where he honed his woodworking skills.  He continued woodworking as a hobby throughout his life creating custom made furniture for family and friends.  In 1986 he began his career in the security industry, starting out as a technician and moving into sales in 1998.  He was a Sales District Manager for Bosch Security Systems at the time of his death.  Lloyd had many other hobbies throughout the years, but his favorites were softball and mountain bike riding.  He was blessed with incredible mechanical and technical aptitude and could fix or create pretty much anything.  He also loved watching the Denver Broncos and the Colorado Rockies.

   Lloyd was a loving father who strived to give his daughters many opportunities.  He had a determined personality and taught his daughters to be strong.  He fought his disease with the same determination he showed for everything else in life.

  1. I’ve been honored to work with Lloyd over his tenure with Bosch. I remember the pictures he shared of his biking adventures (and the occasional scrape here and there). Lloyd loved life, his family and friends! There are many lives he touched, mine most certainly. There is hope in the cross and God’s promise that we will see Lloyd again, this is our only consolation. I will be praying for the family as you walk through this season. May the peace of the Holy Spirit be with you.

    1. Thank you so much Dan for your kind words. You are right, the consolation is that we will see him again some day. Until then we will miss him and continue to love him.

  13. Lloyd, sometimes life gives us something that we simply cannot find the words for.
    All we can do is remember that God has a plan.
    Somehow we are all a part of that plan and for that reason, I am glad that you played a role in it as well.
    Thank you for the kind words you shared with me, those many years ago.
    I smile at the memories, and for the laughter we shared from time to time.
    Maybe these things require no words at all, and we are just meant to feel the bonds between us instead of searching for those words.
    You will be missed sir.
    May Heaven be as beautiful as we imagined, and may you go there knowing that you were an important part of the plan.
    Godspeed

  14. Rosie, Haley, Kaiya, our deepest sympathies in this difficult time. I was honored to have had the opportunity to work so closely with Lloyd over these last several years. His level of integrity and relentless unwavering commitment to do what was right drove his success in his professional and personal life. We started out as coworkers but quickly became bonded friends. I consider him my brother. Its so difficult to find words to console each other or ourselves in time like these. Know that we love you and you’re in our thoughts and prayers every day. Lloyd, until we meet again my friend. We love you and will miss you dearly…

    1. Eric, thank you so much to you and Kenna for your support. Lloyd treasured you as a co-worker and a friend. It is hard to believe he is really gone, but I do believe we will meet him again. In the mean time we will be missing him together.

  15. our hearts ache for your loss. A friend of Arthurs told me, after asking about his health condition, “whether he lives or dies he will be alright if you believe in life after life”. Lloyd is alright, asleep in the arms of Jesus.

  16. Our deepest condolences on your loss. He is in the arms of Jesus.

    1. Thank you Clara.

  17. It was an absolute honor and a pleasure to work with Lloyd over the past 10 years.

I am grateful that we were blessed to spend time with you both last year in Cancun. Dianne and I have been praying for you for all and as so many others have already said, we know that we will see Lloyd again someday when we are all called home to be with Our Lord and Savior!

    1. Thank you Derrell and Dianne for all the prayers. Those months that Lloyd was feeling good and we were able to go on the Cancun trip were an absolute gift and I know it was an answer to all the prayers being said for him. I will miss seeing his Bosch family.

  20. My name is Chris Gomez out of Phoenix.
    I always referred myself to Lloyd as his 2nd favorite mexican. He was one of my most favored individuals in the technology industry that he served.
    Most importantly…… he was a man of distinction and integrity.
    I have had the privilege of knowing Lloyd since 2008.
    My deepest sorrows and prayers to the Apricio family.
