Lloyd Vickers was a former Strickland Propane employee who was placed in temporary control of the company, by Buck. He appeared only in Snow Job.

After Buck sufferers a heart attack, he places Lloyd Vickers in temporary control of the company over Hank, due to the fact that he has a business degree. Hank is distraught over Buck's decision, being as he worked for Buck for fifteen years, and especially after Buck assigns Hank to feed and clean up after his dogs. Later, Hank becomes upset with Lloyd Vickers' decision to raise prices since the weather has caused propane shortages. Hank, in disagreement, angrily explains that people need them during such a time, and that it wouldn't be the right thing to do. Lloyd, unfortunately, is unconvinced.

Later, Joe Jack tells Hank that Lloyd Vickers had Tattlers installed into the Strickland Propane company trucks, which further incenses Hank and the Strickland employees. Eventually the drivers, angry and fed up with Lloyd's decisions, remove the Tattlers from the trucks as a protest. When Lloyd refuses to back down, the drivers all quit en masse, and storm out of his office. Lloyd, unmoved, tells them that he has a whole alumni newsletter full of friends he can call, and that they'll drive the trucks just for the life experience. Joe Jack laughs at Lloyd's declaration, shouting that his friends have to be Hazmat certified, leaving him confused. When he calls Buck for an explanation and tells him the news, Buck, outraged to learn that he has no drivers, furiously explains a hazardous materials license is required to drive a propane truck. Lloyd offers to hire a new batch of drivers at once, but Buck angrily tells him that there are no drivers available at this time of the season, especially in the wake of the emergency, and fires Lloyd over the phone.
