I got this note from Ginny when I came in this morning.
Lloyd was a staff director at CBS starting in the late 40’s, later directing hundreds of New York based game shows for Goodson-Todman including the syndicated version of What’s My Line, I’ve Got a Secret, Beat the Clock, Choose Up Sides, Play Your Hunch, To Tell the Truth, Two for the Money. Among the other game shows he directed were the original version of The Wheel of Fortune (1952), Make a Face, Masquerade Party, Window Shopping, Music Bingo and Supermarket Sweep.

Dear David, It is with great sadness that I want to inform you that my darling Lloyd passed away last night at the age of 92. He was in good health until about 6 weeks ago, and then he went into kidney failure and died after only 10 days in the hospital. He was very fond of you, and looked forward to your E mail and phone correspondence.

Sincerely,
Ginny Gross
