December Programs 2016
Program Chair: Joe Fiend
Friday – December 2nd
Friday's meeting will be dedicated to honoring Emeritus Member Alan S. Lloyd. (1929 - 2016)
All members and guests will be given an opportunity to tell their memories of Alan and reading of email messages. This will be followed by a viewing of some of Alan's slides from his presentations to EAH over the 60 years of his membership in EAH.
Our friend and mentor Alan Lloyd passed away this last Tuesday Nov 22. We had just visited with him last Friday at the EAH meeting. Sunday, he complained of tightness in his chest and went to the hospital, where the doctors confirmed he’d had a heart attack. He was admitted to the ICU to monitor his condition. Unfortunately, Tuesday evening in a moment, he left us. His daughter Lori Lloyd said Alan will continue to teach us as he left his body to the John A. Burns School of Medicine. Also, the family does not plan to have any services and wants friends and family to honor Alan’s life in private.
We will all remember Alan’s wonderful stories, Battle of Midway, the Big Island, Niihau, Canadian Rockies, just last month the Destroyer Ward, his passion for nuclear energy and challenging the status quo on Climate Change. He joined EAH in 1956 and was an Emeritus Member. This February he was honored at the Engineer’s Week Banquet by the Hawaii Council of Engineering Societies with the Lifetime Achievement Award. He was also a Fellow with the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, Air Conditioning Engineers and a member of American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
