U-D Great Lloyd Brazil Dies at 59
Lloyd Francis Brazil, 59, University of Detroit baseball coach and one of the greatest athletes in the school's history, died Saturday in Mt. Carmel Mercy Hospital.
Brazil, of 18980 Ferguson, was injured Wednesday in an auto accident en route to his office in the U-D Memorial Building.
It was reported that he suffered six fractured ribs and head cuts but his condition had been descried as good until late Friday when doctors had to perform a tracheotemy.
Doctors said he died at 10:15 a.m. Saturday of a severe lung injury.
Brazil's accident came 12 years to the day after a near-fatal stroke in 1953, associates said.
He fought back from the attack and continues his duties as head baseball coach and manager of athletic properties.
In 19 years as head baseball coach, Brazil's teams won 222 games and lost 142. The Titans competed in the NCAA championships for four consecutive years beginning in 1958.
Thirty-nine years on the University of Detroit campus, Brazil, a native of Flint was termed the "greatest Titan of them all."
No one in the school's history ever achieved more in athletics, or devoted so many years to the school.
To thousands, he was known affectionately as "Braz," a one-time campus hero matured to sports administrator, quiet of manner, friendly, counselor of young men - and an exceptional coach.
Only the older football fans really remember the Brazil who fired the Titan gridiron ambitions in the golden 20s.
Surviving are his wife, Leola; a son David, and four grandchildren.
Requiem high mass will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday in Immaculate Heart of Mary church, Pembroke and Rutherford. Burial will be in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
The body will be in the Ted C. Sullivan Funeral Home, 14230 W. McNichols, after 4 p.m. Monday.
