Of the remaining six people known to have worked at the Sebewaing Brewing Company, until a few days ago, six were still with us. Lloyd E. Bolzman, 90, passed away Tuesday, July 15, 2014, at the Tuscola County Medical Care Facility in Caro. While employed at the brewery, he worked in the Bottling House and performed other various tasks on and off-site in the buildings owned or leased by the brewery. Lloyd was one of the more versatile brewery employees and would often cover for the approximate seven volunteer fireman who had to leave the brewery when the fire whistle sounded.
He was born April 9, 1924, to the late Ernest and Elsie (Thede) Bolzman. On Aug. 10, 1946, he married Evelyn (Dubs) at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Linkville.
Lloyd enjoyed farming, hunting and fishing. He was a life member of St. John Lutheran Church in Kilmanagh, serving on different church boards during his life time.
