A Baltimore podiatrist known for making house calls to elderly diabetic patients has died of coronavirus-related complications.

Dr. Lloyd Thomas Bowser Jr., 56, who was a 1981 graduate of Walbrook High School and active in fitness training, died Nov. 13 at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, The Baltimore Sun reported.

Born in Baltimore and raised in Morgan Park, Bowser, a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., was the son of Lloyd Bowser Sr., a federal personnel manager who served on the Baltimore City School Board, and his wife, Dr. Geneva Bowser, an assistant principal at the Francis Wood School, The Sun reported.

His father died just weeks before him on Oct. 8 of cancer, according to the funeral home that handled the arrangements.

Bowser earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biology at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and a degree in podiatry at the University of Iowa and did residencies in New York City, Delaware and Maryland, prior to opening his own practice in Baltimore, The Sun reported.
