Lloyd Peter Wallace ’79

Published in Oct. 24, 1990, issue

LLOYD DIED OF AIDS May 14, 1990, at his home in Philadelphia. His illness had been diagnosed at least two years earlier.

Lloyd was born and raised in Pittsburgh, one of nine Wallace brothers and a sister. At Central Catholic, Lloyd was an outstanding student, swimmer, and citizen.

Matriculating at Princeton was Lloyd's pride and glory. He lettered in swimming as a freshman, and was a member of Cottage. Lloyd was active in Class activities and developed close relationships with classmates, teachers, administrators, and others fortunate enough to cross paths with this gentle giant.

After graduation Lloyd attained his C.P.A. and M.B.A. and spent most of his career with Morgan Bank, more recently as senior V.P. of their financial division in Wilmington, Dela. Lloyd was a devoted son of Princeton and was instrumental in founding the gay alumni assn., The Fund for Reunion. He returned to campus annually and was a Prade marshal. For many of us, that orange and black Da Vinci hat, along with his love for Sinatra and Bing, and the quality of his friendship, has become one of Lloyd's enduring trademarks.

He is survived by his mother and father, his brothers and sister, numerous nieces and nephews, and Michael, his companion of eight years.
