David Wayne Holland, age 70, of Elgin, passed away February 21, 2018 at St. Joseph Hospital in Elgin. He was born April 23, 1947 in Grand Tower, Illinois, to his loving parents, Edgar Wilson and Freida Holland.
David received his formal education in Muphysboro Township in Murphysboro, Illinois. David worked as a machine worker and floor tech for 20 years at Main Steel. He was a very hardworking man, as well as a great provider.
From a young age, he showed his care and love for his family. He would go out fishing and hunting to bring food home for his sisters.
David loved music, putting things together, and working on and rebuilding cars. He also enjoyed entertaining company. He didn’t meet any strangers – once you met him, you were considered his friend. He always had a smile on his face and a joke on his lips.
