South Suburban Announces Passing of Board Member David Lawful

May 19 2023

South Suburban announces with deepest sympathy the passing of Board Member David Lawful on May 10. Lawful served the South Suburban community for the past five years, including a successful reelection in 2022. He was heavily involved in the celebration of new projects, an active participant in the race series and an advocate for CAPRA accreditation and the NRPA gold medal application process. As an avid cyclist, Lawful was well-known in the community for supporting healthy lifestyles and upholding South Suburban’s values.

“Dave and I have served on the board together for five years and this is a tremendous loss not just for me, but for the South Suburban community,” said Board Chair Susan Pye. “Dave’s commitment to providing healthy lifestyles for his community, combined with his positive attitude and entrepreneurial spirit was unmatched. From small park dedications to large district-wide projects, Dave has made a lasting impact on our organization.”

The Board of Directors will discuss the process of filling the vacant board seat at the regular business meeting on May 24.
