ENFIELD - David passed away peacefully March 25, 2013, at home in the loving arms of his wife. Born April 29, 1930, in Enfield, he was the son Earl Ray and Hazel (Ludden) Round.
The Guest Book is expired.
He was schooled in Enfield and Lee Academy graduating in 1947. After two years farming with his father, he went to work for A & P as a meat cutter, a job he held for 26 years, with two years out to serve in the Army in Germany. After A & P closed the store in Lincoln, he and a partner bought the A & P interest and opened it first as a Red Front, and later as Lincoln Yankee Grocer. When his partner's illness forced them to close, he bought a convenience store in Enfield that he operated until his retirement. He served 11 years on the board of selectmen in Enfield, and also helped his wife with Rounds Feed and Seed for more than 30 years. He was an avid outdoorsman and gardener, and loved raising the sweetest peaches. He belonged to Subordinate, Pomona, State and National granges for 69 years, was a life member of Veterans of Foreign Wars, and a member of Horeb Masonic Lodge. In his younger years, he was an avid butterfly collector, enjoying many happy trips with his wife and neighbor.
