Lloyd Claytus Sills, 88, of Russellville, formerly of Hardin, Kentucky, died Monday, June 7, 2021, at Legacy Heights Nursing Home in Russellville. The son of Loyd and Dorothy (Rowlette) Sills, he was born May 5, 1933, near Dover, Tennessee.
Lloyd was a Union Electrician and proud member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local Union #700, Fort Smith, Arkansas, for 64 years.

He loved to hunt, fish and travel in his recreational vehicle (RV). He was a proud grower of tomatoes, with his largest tomato officially weighing 3.2 lbs.
