In Memorial of Wally Lloyd
May 21st, 1949 to January 30th, 2009
It is with much sadness that we announce the death of one of the great friends of Iquitos, Wally Lloyd. No one knows what was in Wally’s mind that night when he decided to end his life. It came as a great shock to us all when we heard of his untimely death on 30th January.
Wally arrived here in Iquitos in August 2001 from Kington, Herefordshire, England to run “Jungle Jims Pub” which soon became one of the best bars in Iquitos. Laughter, music and good food where always in plentiful supply and “Jungle Jims” was the place to be until the owner sold the bar leaving Wally high and dry in April 2002.
Wally, always a worker, soon found employment and worked on several construction jobs until April 2004 when he started construction of the Amazon Golf Course, the first in Amazonia. Wally designed and constructed both the golf course and the clubhouse, which will be Wally’s lasting legacy here in Iquitos for years to come.
Wally is survived by his two daughter Katie and Racheal.
The Editor and staff of the Iquitos Times and Dawn on the Amazon, send our sincere condolences to Wally’s family and friends.
Rest in Peace Wally.
