  J. David Lapp, 74, of 14 Circle Rock Dr., Ephrata, died Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at Lancaster General Hospital. Born in Kinzers, he was the son of the late John B. and Anna Augsburger Lapp. He was the husband of Janet E. Landis Lapp. David was a purchasing agent at Case New Holland and a substitute mail carrier in Bird-in-Hand. After his retirement from CNH in 1998, he was a real estate agent at Realty 1. He was a member of Bethany Grace Fellowship. He enjoyed gardening, taking care of his lawn, the yearly family vacations in Ocean City, NJ and time spent at the cabin in Potter County. David loved spending time with his family and grandchildren who put a twinkle in his eye. He not only loved well but was well loved by many. The family would like to give a special thank you to those dear family and friends who faithfully walked beside him in his journey.

    Besides his wife, he is survived by two daughters, Stacey Jo wife of Leroy D. Martin and Kara Noelle wife of Mountry Phongxaysanith both of Ephrata; seven grandchildren, Kylie, Kole, Keegan and Kaden Martin, Noah, Lucas David, and Lia Phongxaysanith; a brother, Alvin Lapp husband of Jean High Lapp of Lancaster; sisters, Frances wife of Lester Henry of New Holland, Lovis wife of Robert Landis of Lancaster and Anna Pearl wife of Titus Kurtz of Elverson.

   The funeral will be held on Saturday, March 14, 2015 at Bethany Grace Fellowship, 400 Reading Road, East Earl at 11:00 AM. Friends may call Saturday, 10-11:00 AM at the church. Interment will be in the adjoining cemetery.
