I met Lance about 40 years ago on the island of Okinawa, Japan . A very special friend to me and many others who attended Kubasaki High School. Lance was always a fun and happy guy! We will remember you always. Kubasaki Dragons- sending prayers and Love to his Friends and Family.
The David Family were truly the the rock of our cud-de-sac family. Jane and Lance are the best people I have ever met. Lance will we missed by us forever, his quick wit and laugh will always bring a smile to my face. David Garin and Family.
Lance was a great person to work for and an even better friend. Was great to spend time with him on my last visit to Seattle. Will miss his smile and goofy jokes...
Rest well my friend....
I am so very grateful that Pam, Sean, Lauren and I had the fortune to become friends with Lance, Jane, Will and Diana. His easy and genuine way with people, raw determination to go hard, love of family, and decency made an impact on everyone who knew him, including my family.
Despite the horrible sadness, my thoughts keep returning to happy times following our kids in their shared activities through the years, which always included Lance's mischievous laugh while telling a story or teasing one of my kids.
One measure of a person's life is how many smiles they caused on the faces of others. You're still putting them on my face, Lance. Thank you.
I've known Lance and Jane and very well his brother Scott (married to my sister, Amy) since my WFU days in the late 1970's.
I remember competing against and watching Lance in intramural sports, and he was always the first to extend a hand to anyone (teammate or opponent) who went down....
I did not see Lance much over the years after WFU, but when I did, he always had a smile, kind words and you could tell he garnered the respect of all those around him.
His positve influences made those around him better, so his legacy is certain and well earned...
Rest in peace...
We first met Lance as a young Lieutenant in 1/4 ADA at Ft Lewis... a ready smile, and professional demeaner made it easy to become friends. We were very happy to renew that friendship with him & Jane three years ago.
Such a terrible loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jane and family.
Rest in peace, fellow West Seattle cyclist.
Lance's passing has devastated a Wake Forest community that counted Lance and Jane as beloved friends for over 35 years. We truly believed him indestructible - solid in his person, his loyalty to his friends, and his devotion to his close-knit family. Kudos to whoever captured his essence so wonderfully in this obit/tribute.
The David brothers are all one of a kind and exceptional men. I am fortunate to have married into this family. Lance's passing leaves a huge hole in the entire extended family unit. I hope I can emulate Lance's passion for life in all I do going forward.
