A gifted character actor, Lloyd appeared in such shows as Desperate Housewives, Shameless, Modern Family, The Middle, Spin City and Seinfeld. In film, he had roles in The Brothers Solomon, Galaxy Quest and Flubber.

Lloyd played attorney Ted Buckland in 95 episodes of Scrubs during its longtime run on NBC and ABC. He also reprised the role in three episodes of Cougar Town.

The cast and crew of Scrubs paid tribute to the actor on social media following news of his death.

"Rest In Peace to one of the funniest actors I’ve ever had the joy of working with. Sam Lloyd made me crack up and break character every single time we did a scene together," Zach Braff wrote on Twitter Friday. "He could not have been a kinder man. I will forever cherish the time I had with you, Sammy."

"Thinking a lot about Sam Lloyd today. (Ted). Truly such a kind, sweet guy. He will be missed by so many," showrunner Bill Lawrence tweeted.

"Simpler times, happier days, the kindest man I ever met," Robert Maschio, who played Dr. Todd "The Todd" Quinlan on the comedy, shared from his Twitter. "Easy going Sam, Rest In Peace. #RIPSamLloyd."
