Lloyd was a great guy and you two made a great couple. We really enjoyed seeing you at the dental class reunion at the Floyds.
Carol, I went to Midland High School with Lloyd, who was funny, smart and thoughtful - and just great to be around. Lloyd will live on the hearts of everyone who knew him.
We are honored to have known Dr Smith. He was an excellent dentist and an outstanding person. We always looked forward to seeing him and Carol; it was more like visiting old friends than going to the dentist. He touched a lot of lives and we'll miss him. Our thoughts are with the family and hugs to Carol. Rest in Peace, Dr. Smith. We'll never forget you.
Carol, I am Sharon Cox, Peggy Pitzer's sister and I used to be a patient of Lloyd's and I visited with you whenever I came to the office. Lloyd came to Max's funeral and Peggy and I were so very touch that he traveled all the way to Yuma to be there. I had a great visit with him and we talked about old times in the 70's when Lloyd would go dirt bike riding with my husband and me. We had so much respect, admiration and just plain liked the heck out of Lloyd. He wasn't just a great dentist, he was a wonderful friend, especially with Max! When you or one of your son's get on your feet, somewhat, after the funeral, please email Peggy with you new email or phone #. Pam Pitzer is with me right now and she need to ask you how to get hold of her old dental records. Please, please, there is no rush on this. By the way, if I would have known of Lloyd's passing Pam and I would have come to his funeral. God be with you all the way on your future journey without Lloyd. It will be rough but you'll make it. We know you are a strong gal!
I traveled from Phoenix to Tucson for dental work because Dr. Smith was the BEST, most caring dentist I had ever found! God bless us all that loved him! He is truly one in a million.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Carol and your family. Lloyd will be missed by all.
Carol, I was a good friend of Lloyd's growing up in Midland. We played on a great Little League all star team and I spent the night at his house with Marilyn and Blex. We lost touch after high school. I can see from all the comments that he was a great dentist and a wonderful person. God Bless, Bob
Dear Carol and family, John and I are so sorry we could not attend Lloyd's memorial service today. He not only was a wonderful dentist, but a kind sincere,loyal and caring person. You both made a great team! We feel truly blessed to have known him! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Sincerely, John and Melody Holley

Carol and family: Lloyd will be truly missed not only because he was the best dentist ever but also because he was the most caring and genuine person ever. My
thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Carol. Love, Genice Fones
Lloyd was a great man. I always enjoyed out talks in the men's grill. His smile and his warmth, along with his fantastic outlook on life inspired me. My life and the way I treat patients has improved because of Lloyd. I miss him greatly.
Not only were you the best dentist in the world....You were a great friend.
Dear Carol and Family,
Please know you are all my my thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time.
It so saddened me to see that wonderfully kind smile in the Sunday paper. As a patient of Dr. Smith's for almost 30 years, I can only thank him for everything he has done for me.Never, ever will I find a dentist who truly cared as he did. He is one of a kind and I am so blessed to have had him as my dentist for so many years. He is one of those 'pivotal people' in my life. May he rest in peace and know he touched many lives in such a positive way.
Carol and family,
We were saddened to learn of Dr.Smith's death. He was the best Dentist. He will be missed.
Love,Dennis and Jeannine Palmer
Dr. Smith was the best dentist ever! We will miss his smile, sense of humor, and professionalism. God bless his family.
Dear Carol and family,
I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened the newspaper and saw the obituary. My heart is sad at the thought of him being gone. And it isn't the same experience going to the dentist after almost 30 years. Know that you are prayed for. With love ~
Dr. Smith and his lovely wife, Carol were my employers for 15+ years. Not only was he a great boss, he was an excellent Dentist, and a wonderful person. He was a mentor and a friend. His passion for life, his enthusiasm in all his endeavors, is something we all can aspire to emulate. I will remember him with great fondness and he will be missed.
Carol, Garrett, & Tracey, I am so sorry to hear of Lloyd's passing. I remember all the fun times we had with Sabino Canyon Little League. Gosh, was that a long time ago, but wonderful memories.Lloyd was the greatest!
Blessings to you all. Take care. Thinking of each of you. HUG
Dear Carol, Sincere condolences to you, on Dr. Smith's passing. You and he have felt almost like family to me than during my past 30 years as a patient of his. Thank you for giving me that feeling. My best wishes to you and your family.
I am so sorry to hear this.
I enjoyed seening Dr. Smith eveytime he came into the cancer center and everytime he told me he needed to lose some pounds. :) I will never forget his fight and motivation.
Dr. Smith was a wonderful dentist. He will be greatly missed
Dear Carol and family, thoughts and prayers to you all. Remembering our times at the Gaslight Theater and Super Bowl gatherings.
Carol, it was our good fortune to have known Lloyd and to have these amazing men in our lives. This community wraps their arms around you. We will get together soon... Ellen Yasmer
Best to Carol and the entire Smith family. Dr. Smith was what every dentist should strive to be, he was the best. He was kind, compassionate, and passionate about all of his patients. It was amazing how many family and friends he had as patients and treated all of us with such great care. He will be greatly missed.
Carol, Tracy and Garrett--I am so sorry for your loss. May Lloyd's memory be always a blessing to you.
Dr. Smith was a great and trusted dentist. We miss him and wish only the best for Carol and his family. May he rest in peace.
Tom and I wish to covey our condolences. He was not only a personable person, but an awesome dentist. He actually made going to the dentist enjoyable. All that music we listened to during drilling or cleaning. He had good taste. We will miss him!
Great memories of an incredible dentist who took gentle, compassionate care of
our family for many years. We were some
of his first patients in Tucson. We send our love and prayers to Carol and
thank-you for your years of making the
office visits run smoothly. He was truly
one of the finest persons we have ever known.

Carol, Garrett and Tracy,
You have our deepest sympathy at this very sad time. Lloyd was a wonderful Huisband, Father and friend and we will miss him very much.

Our love goes out to Carol and family. When Dr. Smith said he was a painless dentist he meant it. Never could tell when he gave you one and never had the soreness and pain after. We will miss him. Rest in peace Lloyd.
Lloyd Smith was a wonderful dentist, caring for several generations of my family over decades. I had long respected him as a conscientious professional dedicated to providing the highest-quality dental care to his patients at an affordable price. He was also a very personable guy who took time to get to know his patients as individuals. After he shared his cancer diagnosis with his patients, I found new reasons to admire him. He faced his illness with strength, courage and humor. His positive outlook and his determination to enjoy whatever time he had left were truly awe-inspiring. When I last spoke to him a few months ago, he described himself as “the happiest terminally ill person you know.” He was taken from us far too soon, but his life-affirming legacy will live on.
Dr Smith was a kind emphatic man and a great dentist. My wife and I were his patients for many years. and we became friends as well.He had a good sense of humor. On my first visit with him and after reading and signing the bit about the fee for missing an appointment, I jokingly said my policy was to charge him my hourly consulting fee for the time I had to wait after my appointment time. He laughed. Often when it was almost time for me, he would prompt his staff to speed things up to avoid my fee. In all the years I visited him, he was never late. Dr. Smith was the most gentle dentist I and my wife had ever known. I will miss him very much.
