David Lamp was born on June 12, 1959 in Portland, Oregon to Frank and Loretta (Pasto) Lamp. He grew up in N.E. Portland; graduated from Benson Polytech High School in 1977. David Lamp was an extraordinary fellow known for his broad intellectual skills and community spirit. David’s community spirit was exemplified in his tireless efforts in serving through the Ford Foundation (training local residents in leadership roles) and the local Rotary Club.
