Dec. 25, 1934 - Dec. 16, 2013
David Arthur Lamberson, 78, of Sarasota, Florida, passed away on December 16, 2013. He had undergone a second heart surgery in August 2013 and wasn't able to fully recover. David was born to Arthur and Ethel Lamberson on December 25th, 1934 in a farmhouse in Fayette Country, Indiana. He graduated from Purdue University in 1956 with a degree in Economics and as a member of Kappa Sigma Fraternity. David met Sandra Elliott while attending Purdue and they married on July 7, 1957.
David was a graduate of the Navy OCS and served 3 1/2 years in the Navy Reserves. Following his service he worked for General Motors in Warren, Ohio for 6 years. David retired from Merrill Lynch in Fort Wayne, Indiana after 33 years as a Financial Advisor, and relocated with Sandra to Sarasota in 1999.
David will be remembered for his ever-present smile, his dry wit, and his passion for the Purdue Boilermakers, college and NFL football, horse racing, golf, movies, and all things Disney. He loved walking Crescent Beach and watching the sunsets. Most of all, he will be remembered for being a devoted and loving husband, father, and grandfather.
David is survived by his wife Sandra (Elliott); son Ronald of Littleton, CO; daughter Sherry Kegel of Johnsburg, IL; and sister, Martha Pearcy of Jeffersonville, IN. He is also survived by four grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, an older sister and brother, and an infant daughter, Holly.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made out to the
of Sarasota in memory of David. The family would also like to acknowledge the care of Dr. Hakim Morsli, his staff, and the staff of Sarasota Memorial Hospital.
Memorial services and a reception will be held on Saturday, January 25, 2014 at 11:00 AM in the Bee Ridge Presbyterian Little White Church, 4826 S. McIntosh Road, Sarasota, FL
