In reply to: USA Today Obit Link & Pic 's message, "I loved "Ted" on TV's SCRUBS -the classic nebbish, but had a HOTT wife in real-life! Heartbreaking they just welcomed a new baby. ..." on Friday, May 01, 07:34:55pm

...Sam Lloyd was born in New York City in 1925 and raised in the suburban communities of Stamford and New Canaan, Connecticut. After graduating from Lawrenceville School in 1942, he joined the U.S. Marine Corps, serving with distinction in the Pacific. After the war, Sam trained at the Feagin School of Drama and Radio and played summer stock in Ridgefield, Connecticut and Chatauqua, New York. He then joined the acting company at the famed Cleveland Playhouse in Ohio, where - interrupted by a return to duty with the Marines during the Korean War - he spent many productive seasons.

Sam first came to the Weston Playhouse in the summer of 1952, and he has subsequently appeared in more than 1000 Playhouse productions, including Sherlock Holmes (1990) with his wife Barbara, brother Christopher, and son Sam. During the late 1950's, he moved to New York City where he studied with Uta Hagen, understudied Walter Matthau in the Broadway production of A Shot in the Dark and appeared in A Cook for Mr. General with a young Dustin Hoffman.

Sam and his family moved to Weston in 1960, where he combined acting, business and community service into a life of extraordinary breadth. He owned and operated the Weston Bowl Mill for more than three decades while finding time to serve in the Vermont State Legislature, moderate the Weston Town Meeting and serve repeated terms on the State Environmental Board and as President of the Weston Community Club.

Sam was elected to the Board of Directors of the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company in 1996, further gracing the theatre with his vision and generosity. On the Opening Night of his performance in An Ideal Husband (July 13, 2001), the company commemorated his fifty years on the Playhouse stage by naming its rehearsal hall in his honor.
