Actor Sam Lloyd died on April 30, 2020 after a long fight with lung cancer. For some reason the news of his death did not spread widely a month ago, but I’d still like to take the time to honor a man that made me cackle all through college.
Lloyd appeared in tons of hit TV shows including Desperate Housewives, Seinfeld, Modern Family, The West Wing, Cougar Town and Malcolm in the Middle.
The character I learned to love through tears of laughter was Ted Buckland from Scrubs, the below average lawyer and above average acapella singer. Every time Ted waltzed onto the scene you just knew something hilarious would happen.
It’s a shame to see someone so talented suffer at the hands of cancer after only 56 years on this earth. Here’s to remembering Sam Lloyd.
