Mathwick, Lloyd F.

Entered Eternal Life on February 10, 2015, at the age of 88. Loving husband of Alice Mathwick (nee Schmidt) for 64 years. Caring father of Kelly Mathwick, Victoria (Karl) Schneider, and Robin (Dale) Cox. Dear grandfather of Mikaela, Abigail, and Luke Schneider, and Madeline and Angela Cox. Brother of Dona (Allen) Akey and Patricia Bailey. Also survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Lloyd was a veteran of World War II serving with the US Navy in the South Pacific. After graduating from UW Madison with a degree in economics, he began a long and successful career in the group health insurance industry at Employers Mutual (Wausau, WI). He was an early innovator in the HMO business, first serving as a liaison with the federal government, and ultimately launching Heritage National Healthplan, an HMO subsidiary of Deere & Company (Moline, IL). Lloyd was devoted to his family, and will be remembered as an avid outdoorsman, animal lover, and great philanthropist to many causes.

A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, February 20th at 11AM at Hales Corners Lutheran Church, 12300 W. Janesville Rd., Hales Corners, WI. Visitation will be held at the church from 10AM until time of Service. Interment at Eagle River Cemetery in Eagle River, WI. Memorials to Hales Corners Lutheran Church greatly appreciated.

To the Mathwick Family,
My deepest sympathy to you all! It is so difficult to lose a father; someone so close to your heart.
I am yet another of Lloyd’s former employees who had the privilege of working for Lloyd beginning in 1993 when he worked at the Independent Physicians Association. He was a true mentor! He taught me so many things about not only insurance and working with physicians, but also about business in general…He was a forever optimist!
What I also learned that if you mentioned Whitey’s Ice Cream in an earshot of Lloyd he was the first one in….. “I’ll treat if you go pickup”…An offer you could not refuse!
While I’ve not seen him in many years, I have often thought him with gratitude and wondered how he was doing…
I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Many blessings, Kathy Lawler Langley

Alice and family, We shared the news of Lloyd’s passing with friends at Faith Lutheran, Moline, especially with the choir. Our sympathy to all of you! We remember the girls playing the piano in the sanctuary – such talent! Lloyd was so proud of the girls. We have a smaller choir than when you were singing, but we’re still praising the Lord! Shirley and Gary Forret, LaVetta Koresko, Candy Smith, Dawn Johnson (our Director) and Clark Miner remember you. We still have that choir photo on the rehearsal room wall and look at it every time we’re there. Bless you for your example of love and longevity in your marriage. Sandy Perry, Moline, IL.

Alice and family you have my deepest sympathy. I started my career with Lloyd in 1984 and continued with Lloyd as my mentor until he retired from HMA to enjoy his family in Wisconsin. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

To all of Lloyd’s family and friends,

You all have my deepest and heartfelt sympathy and you are in my thoughts and prayers. I began my career in Managed Care under Lloyd’s leadership with Quad City Health Plan (QCHP) in 1984 and continued with the Company as it became Heritage National Healthplan and John Deere Health. I remember Lloyd as always having a smile on his face and was always a caring Leader.

I am sure you have a lot of great memories of times spent with him, hold those memories close to your heart. No one can ever take them away and they will help you through the difficult days ahead.

With Deepest Sympathy,

Mary Wassell

To Alice and family: I served as Advantage Healthplan Marketing Manager in the early
2000s in Davenport. Lloyd was the kindest man, a gentleman, who I will always remember with the greatest respect and fondness. He was an uncommonly good man. He was a caring executive with integrity who I shall never forget. I was so blessed to have moved through his world, albeit for a short time. He was so kind to me in very difficult and trying time for me. I always felt he had my back. I can’t articulate how sorry I was to read of your loss in today’s paper. God bless you all and rest in God’s peace, Lloyd. His soft but strong and articulate voice, with that comforting and confident cadence to it, was a once in a lifetime experience in a working relationship for me.
With sincere condolences: Jon (Carolynn) Peterson, Rock Island, IL.
