October 21, 1942 — March 22, 2024

David Ritchie Lumgair, Jr. age 81, of Painter, Virginia, passed away Friday, March 22, 2024.  He was born in upstate New York to David R. Lumgair Sr. and Thelma Sears Lumgair.

After graduating from high school, he entered Princeton University where he received a Bachelor of Science Degree with honors.  The following fall he went to Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he earned a Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering.

            He went to work for Esso Research and Engineering (now ExxonMobil) until his retirement 34 years later.  Exxon retained him as a consultant for many years.  Although his job required him to live in several different states plus Europe, Canada and Sweden he always tried to support his community.  He met his wife when they both worked on a United Way campaign.   As an Exxon employee he worked on several company sponsored Habitat for Humanity homes.  Thru the years he was always active in a church, supported school activities, Boy Scouts and as an EMT served on a volunteer first aid squad for many years.  Locally he enjoyed a range of activities from being a member of the Exmore Rotary Club to serving several years on the Accomack County Planning Commission.  Dave enjoyed fishing and boating on the bayside and seaside and the chance to grow a big garden.  

            Dave is survived by his wife, Mary Hutchinson Lumgair; his son, David (Ashley) Lumgair; his daughter, Mary Elizabeth “Beth” Lumgair; his grandson, Brecken Porter Lumgair; his sister, Nancy L. Cook; his sister-in-law, Shirley C. Hutchinson; and several nephews.
