David Thomas Moreland, 65, of Benton, passed away at his home on Thursday, July 18, 2013. He was born Sept. 2, 1947 in East St. Louis, Ill. to the late Harold and Marge Thomas Moreland. Mr. Moreland operated his own insurance agency in Bryant and was a member of First United Methodist Church in Benton.
David's favorite moments involved doing anything with his three grandchildren, watching sports, and spending time with family and friends on the lake at the houseboat. As a husband and father, he was always there for all of us, a steady presence, and a constant example of God's steadfast love and an emblem of patience and strength through this last tremendous trial.
He is survived by his wife, Annette Smithey Moreland of the home; two daughters, Leslie and husband Rich Cochran of Little Rock and Angela Black of Benton; three grandchildren, Taylor Black, Brandon Black, and Trey Cochran; other relatives, and many friends.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Monday, July 22, 2013 at First United Methodist Church of Benton with Rev. David Jones and Rev. Victor Green officiating.
Reception will follow the service in the church's fellowship hall.
In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to First United Methodist Church Music Department and American Cancer Society.
