Biographical History

Lloyd Harline, Sr. (1927-2014) was an educational administrator in California.

Lloyd Harline, Sr. was born January 14, 1927, as the fifth child to Horace and Lorine Harline in South Gate, California. During his childhood in the Great Depression, he managed to work various jobs including being a paper boy and a farm hand and managed to be good at basketball--to the point where his friend and NBA Hall of Famer Bill Sharman said that he was the only one he knew who could outshoot him. As an adult, he decided to assist in World War II by enrolling in the Maritime Service's radio operator program in New York. After proving to be not capable of working in the sea in 1945 (he had sea-sickness), he was then drafted to serve in the Army as a member of the 85th Signal Corps Battallion in Korea. After finishing his duty in the military, he soon married his first wife Naomi Baleme whom he had two children with and, once they divorced, married Kay Lorraine Swingle in 1955 in the Latter-day Saint St. George Temple. As he raised his family (which grew up to eight children) with Kay, he also took the opportunity to go to university: first to Pepperdine where he got a bachelor's degree in Accounting and later at the University of Southern California where he got a bachelor's and a master's in Education. With the latter two degrees, he not only was able to teach Elementary-aged children, but then served as a principal in two elementary schools (Temperance-Kutner and Mickey Cox) near Clovis, California, from 1960 to his retirement in 1989. Afterwards, he and Kay left California to move to see the rest of their family in Orem, Utah in 1992, where he lived until his death in August 30, 2014.
