Lloyd Hyde was my college roommate at Indiana University in 1960. We were members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Lloyd was the kindest and most gentle of our classmates. Still, he was a gifted athlete and was a member of our Little 500 bike team. I visited his grave in Evansville, Indiana, some years ago and recalled with great heartache the loss of my good friend. I lost track of his sister and parents and understand that his widow Pat [Scott] Hyde passed away a few years ago. He was also survived by a son.
I would love to hear from his son or sister.
