David Lee Limric

David Lee Limric, age 79, of Clearwater, FL passed away peacefully early December 12, 2019 in the comfort of his own home surrounded by family.

The son of William E. Limric & Rachel Battelle, he was born in Boston on June 3, 1940. His early years were spent in Dover, MA and Manchester, VT.  In 1962 he married  his first wife, Mary Ann Sargent, they had two sons together Steven Limric of Glastonbury, CT. and Scot Limric of Madbury, NH. In 1981 he married his current wife, Theresa C. Carter and they have two daughters Melissa Limric Friedland and Julie Limric Barron currently residing in Palm Harbor, FL. David will forever be remembered by his loving wife, devoted sister Faith Burbank, beloved children Steven, Scot, Melissa and Julie, cherished niece Sharon Burbank Allen and nephew Timothy Burbank, his treasured 14 grandchildren raging in ages from 1 to 23, along with other family members and countless friends with whom he was well liked and respected.

David  was  a proud  Air Force Veteran. He attended UVM and in 1961, he started his professional career as the second generation of Limric Brothers Insurance Agency in Wellesley, MA founded by his father and uncle in 1941.  A keen student, David earned the coveted CPCU designation and went on to become President of the family insurance business where he worked for over 40 years. A secondary area of interest, which he proved to be well versed in was Investment real estate opportunities.

David was an avid sports fan, loved attending events and enjoyed riding motorcycles, hiking, golf, Nascar and going to the movies. His real passion was downhill skiing which took him to mountains all over the world. Many memories were made spending summers in Boothbay Harbor, ME as well as Lake Winnipesaukee, NH with family and friends at the family cabin, “Camp Runamuck”.

David touched the lives of many people, and maintained his trademark sense of humor throughout his final days with us.

The family would like to recognize the amazing staff at Suncoast Hospice in Clearwater, with special attention to the Yellow Palliative Care Team. We are eternally grateful for your support on this part of his journey.

    We were sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. I came to enjoy some spirited conversations with Dave over breakfasts at Rodies where we almost solved all of the world’s problems. Dave was so helpful to me and our condo association in
    educating us regarding insurance matters that saved us all a lot of money. We always exchanged pleasant greetings when encountering each other around the property and I often mused over his quick quips. We will fondly remember him.

    My deepest sympathies Terrie, Melissa, Julie, Steven and Scott.

    I have almost 16 years of memories, starting with Seniors Vs Crime, The Green Monster, Leesburg, Inback Office Park, Legal Shield, going to see a couple movies, to the most recent where I drove Dave to those last two Countryside Football games. The last game being one that was a cliff hanger. He still walked the steps to the bleachers, even though it took him some time and he managed to walk the stairs to get to that favorite viewing position on the 50 yard line.

    I will forever remember the nicknames he had for everyone. How much he loved my dog Lil’ Bear. Terrie, you and Dave always had no problem with me bringing him when I visited you in Leesburg even though (Zowie was not real happy about it) and Destiny too. She loved going to the amusement park that day Inverness, and on to the butterfly rainforest.

    Dave was a Prankster. I’m sure you remember the Convertible Camero with Glass Packs? Dave took me for a ride in it one day when we broke for lunch at the office. While driving down a side street in Tarpon he spotted a person walking, pulled over to idle the engine, waited until they walked by the car then revved the engine to see their reaction to the noise, of course they jumped. He just chuckled. But that was Dave….always looking for the next adventure, the next prank, the next deal.

    Terrie, you were a saint, my dear and Dave always praised you to me for your business accumen in taking care of your investments and dedication to he and the girls.

    I also remember he used to cut out pictures of animals from the St. Pete Times and send them to Timmy’s daughters when we had our offices at Key West in Palm Harbor.

    That was a daily routine back then, and he’d ask me if I minded mailing them after he personally made out the envelope. He also had a conference table in his office that always had a puzzle going.

    May you remember the good times as I will, as you as you move forward without.

    Sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. My sincere condolences to Terri and the family. Many memories of the Limric Brothers Insurance Agency working with Dave.

  • Jake McGarry says:

    Terry, our condolences to you and your family. We were blessed to have known Dave, especially to have spent such fun time together skiing in New England, Colorado & Canada, and boating in Florida. Dave never did anything 1/2 way. Once committed, he’d pursue it wholeheartedly to the end. That included our ski runs that would start at first chair and go until the lifts closed – often as fast as he could down the trails in true Vermont style. His mischievous grin & humorous comments put a little extra fun in every day. It’s said that when a loved one leaves the earth, they reappear as a bright new star in the night sky, that will shine forever. I’m sure Dave’s star will be easy to spot for its brightness & motion. Best wishes, Jake & Angel
