Lloyd “Highwayman” Wimp died on November 12, 2010. The Bank Street Brewhouse beer garden is named Lloyd’s Landing in his honor, so if you choose to enjoy an adult beverage today, hoist it to Lloyd.
Lloyd was a doer. For those who didn’t know Lloyd and would like a little insight as to why we miss him so much, click on the “Highwayman” in the right hand column of this blog. Then click on Lloyd’s blog “View from the Highway” and read — Mark Cassidy
On November 29, 2010, a wake for Lloyd was held in the Prost area of NABC’s Pizzeria & Public House: “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen.” Here is what I wrote about it, and some photos.
Last night’s wake in honor of our friend Lloyd Wimp proved to be a rousing sendoff. Close to three kegs of Guinness were consumed, memories and tales and stories were shared, and there was music, food and laughter. Lloyd wanted us to have a good time and remember him, and I believe the evening did him proud. Thanks to everyone who helped organize and pay for the evening; you know who you are. Special thanks to Martin, Jon and Leslie (Lloyd’s wife, who drew the marvelous portrait above; it will hang in the barroom of the Public House).
Here are a few of the photos collected by Jon, as well as the .jpg of Lloyd’s eulogy, written by Lloyd himself, and read by Martin. It’s time to say goodbye, and to get back to work.
To echo Jared: “Long Live The Highwayman!”
