Obituary

David Carl Lankard, a longtime resident of Shelby Twp, Michigan and Bradenton, Florida, passed away peacefully on November 26, 2019 in Bradenton, Florida. He was 84 years old.

David was born on January 8, 1935 in Schellsburg, Pennsylvania to Charles and Violet (nee Deaner) Lankard. He was united in marriage to his beloved wife, Nancy, on June 28, 1958 in Warren where the couple made their home for over 58 years. The couple also made their winter home in Florida for over 30 years. David worked for over thirty years as a model maker at the General Motors Tech Center in Warren, retiring in 1983. Outside of his work and in his retirement, he enjoyed tennis, walking, reading, and following the stock market. David was also a devoted University of Michigan football fan, Detroit Tigers and Pistons fan. David was an active member of the Bethany Baptist Church in Michigan and the West Bradenton Baptist Church in Florida. Most of all, he loved his Lord and Savior and lived life with love and purpose. David touched many lives and will be deeply missed by those who knew and loved him.

David is survived by his devoted daughters, Beth Lankard and Betsy (Ed) Peters; his adoring granddaughter, Amanda (Brian) L’Heureux and great grandchildren, Kelsey, Ethan and Ava. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife Nancy, sister Jane Sonnenberg, and his parents.

Visitation will be held on Monday, December 2, 2019 from 2-8pm at the Faulmann & Walsh Golden Rule Funeral Home, 32814 Utica Road, Fraser, Michigan 48026.

Beth and Betsy, I think your dad was my dad's favorite nephew. I know from the time he was a boy and then into manhood, the two of them would go to Tiger Stadium and watch the Tigers. Now, together, they can watch the Tigers play again.
