Sparks - The Sparks Police Department is mourning the loss of one of their own.

53-year-old Robert Lloyd died while on patrol Easter Sunday.

The police chief says Lloyd stopped by a friend's house Sunday evening where he died from a massive heart attack.

The department says he was an outstanding officer and will be hard to replace. 

"Big shoes to fill. Real big shoes. Like I said, he was very dependable. Just a hard to find type officer these days and time," says Police Chief Marty Stafford.

His co-workers have set up a the Robert P. Lloyd Junior Memorial Fund for his family at Adel Banking Co.

They expect to plan some other fundraisers in Cook and Lowndes counties in the next few months.
