Smith, Lloyd

Feb. 20,1917 – June 15, 2013

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Lloyd Muir Smith, Ph.D., on June 15, 2013. Dr. Smith was born on Feb. 20, 1917, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He earned his B.S. from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, prior to serving three years in the Royal Canadian Artillery during World War II. After the war, he returned to the University of Alberta for his M.S. degree. During this time, Lloyd met and married Edythe C. Dodds.

In 1950, the couple moved to Davis, where Lloyd completed studies for his Ph.D. At UC Davis. In 1954, Lloyd joined the department of food science and technology at UC Davis. He had a long and distinguished career at UCD as a professor, researcher, scientist and chemist. Dr. Smith was a world-reowned expert on edible oils, fats and dairy processing.

Lloyd and Edythe traveled extensively, with Lloyd having the opportunity to work in New Jersey (as a guest professor at Rutgers), New Zealand (as a Fulbright Scholar leading research on the poultry industry), as well as other sabbatical leaves including Australia and Brazil.

Lloyd is survived by his sons, Michael and Douglas; daughter-in-law, Lisa Herstrom-Smith; and his granddaughters, Ashley, Lauren and Rachel; as well as his nieces and nephews in Canada. The family also offers heartfelt acknowledgement to Ann Moore and family of Irvine. He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Edythe C. Smith, and daughter-in-law Elaine Besser Smith.

The family wishes to thank the staff at the University Retirement Community in Davis for their care of Lloyd; their love and kindness is truly appreciated.

Per family request, a private memorial service will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
