Obituary

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.

A memorial service will be held
January 7, 2022 at 10 a.m.
Highland Park United Methodist Church.

    Our prayers continue for this precious family. We were blessed to know Sydney and Jeanne and had a wonderful trip with them to Canada. Sydney loved every single minute of the trip, but one place brought him to tears. We visited Lake Morraine, located outside of Banff, Alberta Canada. The climb to the top of one of the scenic places was a long, hard climb up. Sydney wanted to see it so badly, but the climb was too much for him. Our sweet and thoughtful guides helped Sydney to the top. Tears rolled down Sydney’s cheeks as he looked out over the beautiful lake and mountains. I’m pretty sure that’s how Sydney lived his life. Quiet and humble gratitude for the many gifts God showered on his life. Blessed to know him! Jeanne, we will continue to pray for you and the family as you move forward without him. His sweet spirit lives on in each of you! Heaven holds him. Big hugs….Cindy and Michael

    I know how much you will all miss Sidney. We will miss him too. He was always so kind and had just the right thing to say with a touch of humor. One of our fondest memories is playing charades for “the fish”.
    My first memory of him was as lifeguard at the municipal pool. Aren’t you glad you had to take us to swim lessons now!
    We love you all so much and our heart hurts at the loss. Will talk soon.

    I miss you so much Sidney the laughter our little jokes. Sayings from Shreveport britches and pansies. He was a character he use to get mad at me and me at him but at the end of day he would apologize and me as well he’d raise his eyebrow as only he could and smile.

    Love You

    We enjoyed our many travels with Sidney & Jeanne so much from Russia to Spain. Every time we learned something new about him. We’ll never forget his wrapping that snake around his neck in Morocco! Betty would have had a heart attack on the spot and we fondly remember his Starbucks search in Russia so he could have their picture taken in front of it in Moscow! The walks along the beaches in Spain provided scenery that he really enjoyed-was it the beaches or the fopless bathers that fascinated him? I guess we’ll never know! We’ll miss him dearly, our fellow world traveler.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
