Obit LombardDavid N. Lombard lost his courageous battle with cancer on August 22, 2012, surrounded by his loving family.

Dave was born in Seattle on December 6, 1949, and lived in the area all of his life. He graduated from Queen Anne High School, the University of Washington and UPS Law School. He was married to Susan Elliott on October 22, 1983, and had three children, Matt, Jeff, and Megan.

He was an adoring husband and father and loved most to spend time with his family.  He especially enjoyed watching all three of his children participate in sports activities and volunteered his time to the Woodinville Little League and Woodinville High School sports for many years.

Dave was a man of integrity, generosity, common sense, humor and loyalty. He was a mentor to many. Family, co-workers and friends were very important in his life.  He loved to practice law and often said it was “a little bit of heaven” to go to work!  A colleague and friend said it best this past week: “He made a difference.That he made a difference may be the least that can be said of Dave. For sure, I am both a better person and a better lawyer for having known him.”

In the last several years he enjoyed traveling with Rick Steves to Europe, playing golf and going on wine tasting excursions.

Dave’s legal practice resembled a solar system with him at the center. Through skill and judgment, Dave attracted clients who became eternal friends. He worked adeptly with opposing lawyers who respected him.  He loved his law partners and they loved him back.

Dave’s solar system started with a bang at the UPS Law School (now Seattle University) from which he graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1976. From there he clerked for Justice Orris Hamilton of the Washington State Supreme Court. After clerking, Dave joined the Seattle law firm of Ferguson & Burdell in 1977. In recognition of his abilities as a commercial real estate lawyer, Dave became a partner in 1983 and continued as a partner in that firm and its successor until early 1994.

In March 1994, Dave’s solar system radiated further when he and other Ferguson & Burdell lawyers and staff embarked upon a new venture bearing his name, Jameson Babbitt Stites & Lombard.

Throughout his radiant career he enjoyed his peers’ appreciation of his talent.  Dave was a long-time member of the Real Property, Probate & Trust Section of the Washington State Bar Association. He served as a fellow of the Board of Regents of the American College of Mortgage Attorneys and as a member of the Lenders’ Counsel Group of the American Land Title Association. Dave has been recognized for many years by Best Lawyers, Chambers, and as a Super Lawyer.

Dave is survived by his wife Sue of 29 years, his sons Matt and Jeff, and his daughter Megan; his mother Dorothy Lombard; sister Laurie Albrecht and brothers John Lombard and Larry Lombard. A private graveside memorial service has been held. A celebration of Dave’s life will be held on September 8, at Broadmoor Golf & Country Club, from 5-10 p.m. Everyone whose life was touched by Dave is welcome to attend. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made to the American Cancer Society.
