July 25, 1943 - December 29, 2021
Sidney William Lloyd, 78, of Dallas, Texas, passed away on December 29, 2021, after an extended period of illness.
Sidney was born July 25, 1943 to Lewis Keith (L.K.) and Cydney Lloyd in Shreveport, Louisiana. He spent much of his childhood in Shreveport followed by high school years in Minden, Louisiana.
He attended Centenary College in Shreveport and later graduated from Louisiana Tech. He attended the University of North Texas in Denton for graduate studies in psychology, earning a PhD in Psychology in 1980. Sidney worked as a psychologist for many years and retired in 1999.
Sidney and his wife Jeanne met in the summer of 1966 and were married in 1968. They have two children, Sara and Matthew.
His children were the delight of his life. He loved every minute of being a father, from infancy to adulthood – yes, even the teenage years. He was proud of them and wanted the best for them. He missed them dearly as they moved away from Dallas, but always wanted them to have the life they wanted. He eagerly awaited their FaceTime calls and their visits.
Sidney and Jeanne loved to travel and traveled to many places both nationally and internationally with friends and family. Some of Sidney’s favorite destinations included Hawaii, the Canadian Rockies, France, Spain and Ireland. He delighted in meeting people from other countries whose life experience was different from his own and in witnessing the beauty of this earth.
After he was no longer able to travel, he encouraged Jeanne to continue traveling with Sara and loved hearing stories and seeing pictures of far off places. He always wanted his family to have wonderful experiences and follow their dreams even when he was no longer able to.
Until the very end, Sidney always greatly enjoyed and deeply appreciated the visits and calls from steadfast friends and family members.
Sidney is predeceased by his parents, his brother, Cecil, and his sister, Ann. He is survived by his wife, Jeanne; his brother Keith; and his children, Sara and Matthew.
