Cecil Rhodes Lloyd, 89, of Shreveport, Louisiana passed away on June 14, 2020 in Fort Worth, Texas.

The memorial service will take place at 10:00 AM on Monday, June 22, 2020 at the Wade Family Funeral Home in Arlington, Texas. The military service will follow at 12:30 PM at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery.

Cecil was born in Corpus Christi, Texas to Cecil Rhodes Hilbun and Cidney W. Linxwiler on August 18, 1930. He did his undergraduate studies at Louisiana Tech, Louisiana State University, and Centenary College. In 1958, he graduated from Loyola University School of Dentistry in New Orleans and later owned a private dental practice in Shreveport, Louisiana for over 45 years. He served as a Marine in the Korean War.

Cecil was an accomplished Eagle Scout and served as Lieutenant Governor for Louisiana Boy’s State. An athlete himself, he was a coach, chairman of the YMCA and the Independence Bowl, president of the Shreveport Sports Foundation, and founder of the Shreveport Sports Hall of Fame. Cecil was proud to call Shreveport home, as he served on city council, several of the city’s hospital boards, and the Louisiana State Board of Dental Examiners.

Cecil had many talents and passions. He was a national 4-wall handball champion in age group competition, and he was an avid runner, tennis player, and golfer. He also raced motor bikes and enjoyed fishing. He was a fabulous singer, held several roles in the Shreveport community theater, and sang with the Shreveport Opera. Above all of his interests, his greatest love in life was his children.

Cecil was preceded in death by his mother, Cidney Lloyd, her husband, Lewis K. Lloyd Sr., of Shreveport, LA, and his sister, Ann Meeks, of Delray Beach, FL. He is survived by his children and their spouses: J. Michael and Karen Lloyd of Austin, TX, Leigh Ann and Robin Roberts of Hot Springs, AR, Kendall and Charlie Stewart of Westlake, TX, Lauren and Reid Cloy of Keller, TX, and Sutton Lloyd of Denver, CO, his brothers and their spouses: Sidney and Jeanne Lloyd of Dallas, TX and Keith and Karen Lloyd of Birmingham, AL, his grandchildren: Leighton Legg, Cidney Legg, Mallory Roberts, Michael Lloyd, Scott Lloyd, Isabelle Goetz, Thomas Goetz, Cason Cloy, Griffin Cloy, and Sutton Cloy, and his great-grandchildren: Thirsdei Legg, Rhodes Legg, Eliot Legg, Violet Legg, and River Legg.

It’s with a very heavy heart I’m writing this. I’m Wade Lollar and I am proud to say that I was truly blessed to have had a stepdad that loved and treated me as his own. That great man was Dr Lloyd. As I watched the service today all the memories came flooding back and my heart ached. I remember the life lessons he taught me, the many many sets of tennis we played and the miles we would run together. He was also my hunting partner in a blind when we’d go to South Louisiana duck hunting and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I could go on and on about the things he did for me that he didn’t have to but the most important thing was that I knew he loved me. I was fortunate enough to run into him at Herby K’s with Mike a few years back and I took that opportunity to tell him how much I truly appreciated him and loved him. I know everybody is feeling this same way but sure wish I could tell him one more time. He will be one I’ll be looking for when I get to heaven.

Love and prayers to all my cousins and their children. They all spoke beautifully today. Uncle Cecil was a bigger than life figure to me from as far back as I can remember and he will be missed dearly by me and my family; Kelly, Stephen Jr, Austin, and Liam, who I'm so thankful got to know his great uncle over the last 9 years.
