The Monumentally Sad Passing of Lloyd Dobson

Brothers and sisters,
It is with great sadness that I have to tell you all that Lloyd Dobson passed away last night of an apparent heart attack.
Lloyd was a friend and a teammate and a brother and a true Nomad for most of his life. I know that he was a teacher to many of you younger players and was responsible for many of you finding your way to the game of rugby and to our club.
He was a mainstay of the Nomads and I’m crushed that we won’t be able to share the field again.
My family is gutted as my children genuinely loved him and my daughter Lucy, just yesterday had a great time teasing and goofing around with Lloyd at the game. She is shattered today.
If there is any comfort in this, at the very least, Lloyd spent his last day surrounded by his Nomad brothers and sisters, watching his club play and having a laugh with everyone afterwards.
We don’t have any details regarding a memorial just yet but will pass them along as soon as we do.
Rest easy my brother, you will be missed.

-Adam Mernick
