David Emmanuel Lord Jr. of Lost Creek, W.Va., and formerly of Tinicum Township, Pa., died Sunday, May 21, in Clarksburg, W.Va., following a brief illness. He was 78.
Born Jan. 18, 1945, at Doylestown Hospital, and raised on Cafferty Road in Tinicum Township, he lived nearly all his life in the house in which he was raised. In 2021, he and his family moved to his dream retirement property in West Virginia.
The only son of David E. Sr. and Helen (Walter) Lord, he was a 1962 graduate of Palisades High School and graduated in 1967 from East Stroudsburg State College with a bachelor’s degree in education. He spent more than 30 years teaching science at Pennridge South Middle/Junior High School in Perkasie before his retirement.
He was a lifelong and avid outdoorsman, spending many summers in Gananoque, Ontario, and many winters in Tioga County, Pa., hunting and fishing with family and dear friends. He was a lifelong member of Delaware Valley Fish and Game, and loved photography – especially wildlife photography – and entertaining his loved ones with stories of his outdoor adventures.
He was a dedicated husband and father. He is survived by his loving wife, Debra; his daughters, Alyssa J. Francis and her husband, Jarrad, and Megan A. Pasceri; a sister, Mary Kay Namiotka; and his grandchildren, Tyler D. and Brooklyn E. Pasceri. He was preceded in death by a sister, Shirley Carr.
