David Petersen Lemmon

David P. Lemmon 75, passed away at his home on April 22, 2018. He was born on January 9, 1943 to Richard and Barbara Edna Lemmon in Preston Idaho. He was the youngest of eleven children. He was raised in Weston Idaho and resided there for the majority of his life. David graduated from West Side high school in 1961. While in school he participated in football, basketball, baseball, and track. After high school he served a LDS mission in the New England states. He married Paula Porter in 1965, they have four children, 15 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren. As an active member of  the LDS church, he served as a high priest teacher for twenty years and also held other callings. Together as a couple, David and Paula enjoyed working as ordinance workers in the Logan Temple.


David loved spending time with his number one girl Paula, his children and grandchildren. Spending time hunting, fishing, cooking out, and camping were family favorites. As well as keeping up with all of Paula’s Honey-do’s which he secretly loved. He loved working on guns, making knives, working with leather, and keeping busy in his man cave where one and all were welcome to come and partake of his many talents. His man cave was also his music room where his magic came to life. David started playing music at age 3 on the ukulele. He played the guitar and banjo as well. Music was an important part of his life. He practiced every day sometimes starting at 4AM. For twenty years music was more than occupation and he played whenever he could for anyone who would listen. After he quit the road tours he returned to his next love, building things. He worked in construction until he became too sick to continue.


David was preceded in death by his mother and father Richard and Edna Lemmon, His sisters Barbara Birenbaum, Margaret Crook, Joan Spencer, Joyce Lemmon, and his brother Thomas Lemmon.
