Lloyd Petipren page. by George Deible

This page will be dedicated to one of my best friends that got me started in Armwrestling in the mid 80's, Lloyd pasted away in July 1989.

I Just Received this Picture of Lloyd after giving it to a friend to scan 22 yrs ago.
I forgot about it, and was given the picture back a few days ago.

Lloyd was a worker as you can tell by the pile of Apple wood he cut.

  • 1987 Ohio State Sit-Down Championships
    We all had a great time at this tournament and I don't think anyone of us that went with Lloyd will forget how much fun we had with him.

  •  1988 Michigan State Championships
    was directed by Lloyd in June of 1988 and was the first tournament I was involved in promoting.
    Lloyd was one of a kind that knew how to have fun and be a serious puller too. All of us that traveled and  pulled with him always had a great time.
    Lloyd traveled a lot to tournament all over the Country and Canada and this helped made the 1988 Michigan State Championships a great success.
