David Lank, 71, of Barnstead, NH, passed away on Friday, February 6,
2015 and he was a star. He was a star to many people, not just family or
friends. He loved people, whoever they were, wherever they came from or
whatever they believed in. He was the guy who started conversations,
knew who needed help and how he could help, and then just did it. He
liked to work hard and get things done, but he also knew how to have a
good time, make the best of things and to let everyone feel like they
were included. So many times in his travels, whether it was in a far
away country or a little restaurant in the back of a general store, he
could always find someone to swap stories with. He was well read on many
subjects and enjoyed a lively discussion about almost anything.
He was born
on June 2, 1943 in Wolfeboro, NH, to the late Clinton Lloyd and Ruth
Butman Lank and he was a devoted husband and father and is survived by
his wife, Margie; sons Stephen and wife Kimberly, Aaron and wife Linda,
Joshua and girlfriend Valerie Hulse; sisters Rowena Boyd, Ruth Riel,
Eleanor Boyd, and Dorothy Philbrick; and his beloved grandsons Aiden and
Collin Lank. In addition to his parents, brothers Howard Lank, Clinton
Lank, and Richard Lank preceded him in death.
He had a
special place in his heart for his family – of all the rewards in life,
he cherished most the time with his family. His mother, his brothers and
sisters, aunts, uncles, and cousins, his nieces, nephews and
grandchildren – on both sides of his family – he loved to spend time
with them. He loved to dance and sing, tell stories and hear about what
was happening in everyone’s life.
not have you to cry in his absence, he would rather you told some
stories about how he made you laugh.
He was also
a proud veteran serving in the U.S. Army and was a member of the
American Legion Earl B Clark Post 42. He was owner of S.D. Lank and Sons
Plumbing & Heating and retired after 30 years of doing the hands on work
he so enjoyed. He was a Mason, Corinthian Lodge #92 F&AM and a member of
the Bektash Shriners of NH, serving for a few years as leader of the
Bektash Drum Corps. He was a member of First Congregational Church in
Pittsfield, NH and a founding member of the Scurvy Prevention League. He
was an ardent follower of all the New England sports teams, loved to
hunt and fish, and particularly loved to travel the world with his wife
and many friends.
service will be held in May.
In lieu of
flowers, memorials may be made to Bektash Shrine, P.O. Box 4086,
Concord, NH 03302 and/or charity of the donor’s choice.
