David H.

Service: Held on Friday, January 22, 2021 at REDEEMER LUTHERAN CHURCH. Service will be live streamed at 3PM on the church’s Facebook page: Redeemer Lutheran Church-Milwaukee.


With the Lord’s love and guidance, David passed suddenly on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at the age of 68. Beloved husband of Maureen (McFarland) for 44 years. Dear father of Ryan (Abby) and Dan (Shannon) Lloyd. Loving grandfather of six above average grandchildren: Emilia, Eddie, Robbie, Violet, Henry and Tommy.  Brother of Rob (Bonnie) Lloyd, Bill (Beth) Wilson.  Also survived by sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, many other relatives and friends. Preceded in death by his brother, Gary, and his spirited brother-in-law Dennis McFarland.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, January 22, 2021 at REDEEMER LUTHERAN CHURCH. Service will be live streamed at 3PM on the church’s Facebook page: Redeemer Lutheran Church-Milwaukee.

David earned his bachelors’ degree at UW Madison School of Psychology and a Masters’ of Science of Marquette University. David worked as a counselor at Impact Family Counseling. While David was loved by his large family and dear friends, we all knew Dolly Dog was his favorite. David enjoyed Door County vacations, grilling, bonfires, swimming, reading, music, Packers, dog walks, Rachael Maddow and reviewing Moe’s Social Calendar.

Memorials to Redeemer Lutheran, which Dave loved and served as an usher would be very meaningful to him.

    “Dave Dancing” was the BEST! Always (seemingly) mellow, his dancing was a reflection of that “chill-ness”. We sure had fun!!!!

    There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love.

    Insightful, perceptive, non-judgmental. Sly, smart, quick witted.
    Humble, soft, shy. Safe shelter in a storm. God seeking, devout wonderer, standing watch.

      Well said! He always wanted us all to go to the higher ground where gossip and unkindness was not welcomed.

    David was a wise man with a gentle soul. His insight, gratitude, and true listening, made him an amazing counselor and treasured friend to all! David demonstrated why dogs are called “Man’s Best Friend”. His little Dolly will follow her master’s wishes, by pouring all of her love into Maureen! That bond will be very special! Many blessings to you Maureen, your dear boys and their beautiful families…

    I worked with Dave at Impact for many years. I witnessed firsthand his gift for listening…both with his clients and with us. He made a difference. I will remember his gentle, caring way and his quiet strength.

    I was honored to have worked with David at IMPACT for 15 years. His unmatched compassion, kindness and gentle spirit were an inspiration to all who had the privilege to meet him. I will hold his memory dear and send my heartfelt condolences to his family. Heaven has gained an incredible angel.

    What a tremendous gift it was to have worked with David for so many years at IMPACT. It cannot be overstated how beloved and respected he was to all of us. Please know that David adored his wife and bursted with pride whenever he talked about his sons. I’m so very sorry for his passing but he will always be remembered for his kindness, calmness and generosity.

    The few times I had the privilege of spending time with David were each memorably heartwarming. David had a way of making me feel totally at ease with his kindness, attention, and easy disposition. What a gentle spirit. What I would do right now for a glass of red by the bonfire with David and Mo in the Johnson’s old, magical garden. David, you’ve left this world a better place by having touched our lives with your gifts, and we are grateful.

    I was blessed to have worked with David at IMPACT. There are too many times to mention of how he made me laugh and was just a kind presence that didn’t have to announce himself. Grateful and blessed to be witness of living life in such a way that it touches other lives for years to come.

    Praying for his family’s peace and comfort in their memories of him as they walk through grief.

    I feel very blessed that our daughter Shannon married into such a loving home. Dave and Moe were always warm and welcoming and I so enjoyed the times we got together, I wish there would have been so many more. Dave leaves a wonderful legacy in his sons and grandchildren, a testimony to his life well lived. Rest in peace Dave, we love you.

    Dave was the leader of our college tribe at UWMadison in the early 70’s. Dave and I were roommates and Mary was Moe’s roommate for a few years. We lived, loved and experienced all that life offered as a close group of friends. Music, parties, classes, and all the trials and tribulations that twenty somethings go through. Mary and I were both honored to stand up in Dave and Moe’s wedding. Dave was always there for us and offered kind and thoughtful guidance in our college lives and beyond. Dave had a profound influence on our lives and we are thankful that he shared his wisdom and kind, fun loving spirit with us. Moe and Dave are a great duo that we are proud to know.
