The Reverend Arthur Selden Lloyd passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis, MA, on August 4th. He was born December 5, 1927 in Osaka, Japan. He was the seventh and youngest child of Episcopal missionaries the Rev. James Hubard and Louisa Myers Lloyd. Art graduated from Hargrave Military Academy and Virginia Episcopal School, and received a BA from the University of Virginia. He earned Masters degrees in Theology from Virginia Theological Seminary and Yale Divinity School. He also received a Masters in Adult Education from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He taught History at Hoosac School in Hoosick Falls, New York. He was ordained as an Episcopal priest in 1956 and served as Assistant Minister at the Church of the Redeemer, Cincinnati, Ohio; Associate Minister for Campus Ministry at Trinity Church Bloomington, Indiana; and Chaplain at St. Francis House in Madison, Wisconsin. He married Susan Ellsworth Scherr in 1960. Art was passionate about peace, justice, and human wellbeing, particularly the rights of those on the margins. Throughout the years he was active in the Madison Area Peace Coalition, the Wisconsin Interfaith Coalition for Central America, Basic Choices Inc., the Apprentice Organizers Project, and St Dunstan's Church Outreach Committee; and he helped found the Episcopal Network for Economic Justice. He also served as chair of the City of Madison Ethics Board. In the 1990s, Art and Sue took leadership roles in the group which founded and developed The Village Cohousing Community, Inc., a condominium association and the first cohousing project in Madison. Art and Sue moved into the community in 1999. In recent years his many hobbies included painting, bird watching, singing in the choir, playing recorder, cooking, baking sourdough biscuits, yoga, micro-breweries, tennis, golf, cross-country skiing, photography, and reading, including the St. Dunstan's men's book group selections and much more. He was a loving husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather and friend to all. He truly loved all people, and made friends wherever he was. He is survived by his wife Susan, of Madison, WI, son Joseph (special friend Diane Chapman) of Madison, WI, daughter Louisa (Greg) Cierzan of Lewiston, MN, grandchildren Robert Lloyd and Jessica Pena, two brothers, the Rev. John Janney and the Rev. Robert B, and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, Hubard and the Rev. Barton, two sisters, Louisa Lloyd and twin sister, the Rev.

My sincerest sympathy. May the God of all comfort strengthen your family during this time of sorrow. Those who die God keeps in his memory because he cares, they are precious in his eyes. Psalms:116:15

It was always such a pleasure to have you and Susan stop by my stand. I always looked forward to seeing both of you and have often wondered how you were.

My mother came to me in a dream and said that Heaven had such beautiful flowers. She was very happy and I know you will be too even though Susan is not with you at the moment.f

I have very fond memories of both of you.
