Sam Lloyd was best known for starring in over 95 episodes of the hit American television series Scrubs, guest starring in an array of other popular series over his career.

Most tragically, the actor was diagnosed just weeks after welcoming the birth of his first child with wife Vanessa. Producer of the show Tim Hobert and his wife had endeavoured to help the family by establishing a GoFundMe page to raise money for the actor, who was struggling to keep up with medical bills and childcare expenses.

Yet Lloyd is being remembered for his optimism and witty attitude even in the darkest of times, whilst enduring the worst parts of his cancer.

“Rest In Peace to one of the funniest actors I’ve ever had the joy of working with,” co-star Zach Braff (who played character JD in Scrubs) wrote in a social media post.

Sam Lloyd made me crack up and break character every single time we did a scene together. He could not have been a kinder man. I will forever cherish the time I had with you, Sammy.”
