A much-loved husband, father, and grandfather, David G. Lamborne II, 75, of Rockledge, Florida, passed away on August 13, 2018. He was born June 26, 1943 in Kokomo, Indiana, but moved frequently in his youth as the son of a Navy officer, the late David G. Lamborne, and his wife Dorothy Colyar Lamborne.

He had a love of baseball, which included a brief run in the Minor League. Dave was highly educated and dedicated his career to education, serving mostly as a school administrator in many school systems covering all grade levels, ultimately retiring from West Cape May School District. Upon retirement, he fulfilled his dream of owning a boat large enough to travel up and down the East Coast. Dave was always able to find the positive side of life and enjoyed making memories with his family.

He is survived by his loving wife of 16 years, Sandra Lamborne; daughters Renee Doyle and husband Steve, Nicole Lamborne Salvati and husband Harry, and Danielle Almquist; son Trae Lamborne and wife Donna; stepdaughter Andrea Branco and husband Dann; stepson Carmen Delessio and wife Kerry; and 15 grandchildren, Gabriella, Alyssa, Michaela, Drew, Grace, Nicholas, Cara, Jack, Cecelia, Greta, Aurora, Danny, Nora, Dante, and Will.

Visitation will be held Saturday, August 18, 2018 from 10:00 until 11:15 am at St. Clare of Assisi in Swedesboro, NJ. A funeral Mass will follow at 11:30. Interment private at the convenience of the family.

We will always remember David's calm demeanor and witty sense of humor. David was always able to find the good in people. He was always a joy to be around and I'm sad to say we didn't have the opportunity to spend more time together. He was a good father and loving grandfather. He will be forever missed.

My sincere condolences to the Lamborne family. Dave was one of kind, and I have so many great memories. Sandi, I know your heart is broken, and I wish somehow I could make it better. Dave officiated our wedding just four years ago. What a legacy of children and grandchildren he leaves behind to carry on. God Bless you all, and may Dave forever be remembered with smiles and laughter through the tears.
