For those of you who did not get to meet Dr. Trimble, He was a longtime Life member of GOMA who has served the Osteopathic profession and his community honorably for many years. He started practicing osteopathic medicine in Moultrie, GA, before moving to Columbus and then to Atlanta in 1961. He practiced for almost 40 years and was the very essence of what an osteopathic physician should be. He comes from a family of D.O.'s . His father was a D.O., and he had three brothers and a cousin practicing osteopathic medicine. After serving on several committees through the State association, he was elected as President in 1952.

Dr. Richard O. Loyd, a Georgia Cancer Specialists physician and former bishop of the Athens 2nd Ward congregation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, passed away on Saturday, August 19, 2017. He died surrounded by family after 11 days in the Piedmont Athens Regional Cardiac ICU. 

Born in New Orleans, La., on July 17, 1958, he was raised and graduated high school in the Memphis, Tenn., area. Dr. Loyd went on to receive bachelor's degrees in microbiology and medical technology from Memphis State University, and later a master's degree in immunology from the University of Mississippi. After receiving his medical degree in Florida, he served a one-year internship with Georgia Cancer Specialists in Atlanta, then was an Internal Medicine resident and Oncology fellow at the world-renowned Alton Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans.

In 1998, Dr. Loyd returned to Georgia, basing his Georgia Cancer Specialists practice in Gwinnett County, then moving to Athens in 2007 to open the first GCS clinic in the area. Dr. Loyd also was on the board of directors of Georgia Cancer Specialists. Currently affiliated with Northside Cancer Institute, Georgia Cancer Specialists is one of the largest oncology practices in the U.S. and a national leader in advanced cancer treatment and research . With more than 40 medical oncologists in the practice, its large, specially-trained medical staff allowed Dr. Loyd to extend the latest in cancer treatment, technology, therapy for blood disorders, and clinical trials to the local community. 

From his medical school years until the present, Dr. Loyd was involved in several community service organizations. His most significant volunteer service was in the lay ministry of his Mormon religion. He served in numerous ecclesiastical leadership positions including leading the youth organizations, local missionary work, and serving as bishop, or congregation leader, of the Athens 2nd Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from 2010 to 2015. During his years as bishop, nine young men and women served across the world concurrently as missionaries from the congregation, the most ever in the history of the area. He wrote each missionary every week a personalized email letter. Most recently, he was asked to lead in a multi-congregation Northeast Georgia effort to initiate a new world-wide program replacing Mormon employment resource centers with a self-reliance outreach not only helping those seeking employment, but assisting those hoping to improve their educational prospects and succeed in starting small businesses. 

Most important to Dr. Loyd was his own family, leading and teaching them to also do their best to serve one another, the church, and their communities. Dr. Loyd is survived by his wife of 27 years, Kathy Eyre Loyd; his children, Audra Loyd of Athens, and Alex Loyd (Kaitlyn) of Provo, Utah. 

Richard O. Loyd, DO, was a long time member of GOMA and was President in 2005. He recently return to serve on the GOMA board as Vice President 2017. He will truly be missed in the  Georgia Osteopathic community. (Edited)
