Lloyd F. Chaney


Lloyd F. Chaney, 88, passed away Sunday evening, January 9, 2022 in IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital, in Muncie.

A native and life resident of Blackford County, he was born October 1, 1933 to Virgil and Mary M. (David) Chaney and was a 1952 graduate of Hartford City High School.  He married Phyllis A. (Cox) on June 6, 1954, in Delaware County. They celebrated over 62 years of marriage, prior to her passing October 16, 2016.

Known for his ownership of “Chaney’s Corner” in Blackford County, Lloyd continued after his father in the automotive service, at the same location for fuel and many automotive needs.  Lloyd had also worked at Anaconda Wire of Marion, Indiana and retired from General Motors.

His family and the time he spent with family, was most dear to him.  Many fond memories were made “at the lakes” where Lloyd enjoyed water skiing.  Water skiing was his passion and was even known to ski barefoot.  A notable quotation of Lloyd’s, known to provoke his wife on Sunday mornings, when they were at the lakes was “Sunday mornings are for water skiing”…which also riled local fishermen.  Additional interests Lloyd had, include bowling, car racing and trains.

He leaves behind four children:  Janette Milholland (Keith), Mary A. “Annie” Battiste, Michelle Roush (Stan) and Michael Chaney (Kim); former-son-in-law, Charles Atkinson (Richael); fourteen grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.  He also has a brother-in-law that survives, Les Cox (Cheree)

In addition to his wife and parents, he also is preceded in death by a son, Lloyd Francis Chaney, Jr. and a daughter, Janelle Atkinson.

Services will be held at 1:00 P.M. Friday, January 14, 2022 in the Waters Funeral Home, 501 W. Washington St., Hartford City, with Pastor Kevin Lex presiding.  Burial will follow in the Hartford City Cemetery.

Visitation will be held Friday, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. prior to services, at the funeral home.  Online condolences may be sent to his family at
