David Lowndes Amory ’55

Published in Nov. 21, 2001, issue

David died in his sleep after a long illness on June 12, 2001, in Lake Bluff, Ill. Born in Boston, he prepared for Princeton at Middlesex School. He majored in politics, participated in interclub sports, and was a member of Ivy Club.

Following military service in the Army Artillery, David was employed by Merrill Lynch and Smith Barney. In 1981 he joined Johnson & Higgins as a vice pres. until retiring in 1996.

David's warm personality, enthusiasm, and integrity were welcomed by volunteer organizations such as YMCA, College of Lake County, Evans Scholars, Princeton Schools Committee, and Project 55, to name a few. He also enjoyed being a mentor to recent college graduates.

David loved all aspects of golf and served as pres. of Shore Acres Club and a founding governor of Conway Farms Golf Club. He was involved in the USGA and WGA and brought the 1998 Junior Amateur Championship to Conway Farms.

The class extends its deepest sympathy to his wife Mary, sons David and Alexander, daughter Susan, and five grandchildren. David enjoyed visiting with classmates, and we are grateful to have had him as a friend.
