A memorial fund has been established by friends of David A. Rameden. Rameden, who lived in Overland Park, KS, is the Forest Lake High School graduate who died suddenly on February 26 while on vacation at Lake Meade near Boulder City, NV.
The David A. Rameden Memorial Fund is being established in Dave’s memory at the Security State Bank of Marine (with a location at 21450 Forest Blvd N PO Box 902 in Forest Lake). Contributions can be sent to the bank in the fund’s name. Donations can also be made through the bank’s offices in Marine on St. Croix, Scandia and Lindstrom.
The memorial fund is being established by friends of Rameden. He was a graduate of Forest Lake High School in 1975 where he was class valedictorian. Following high school, he went on to the United States Military Academy at West Point, graduating in 1980. He served in the U.S. Army as an infantry officer.
Rameden ended his Army career in 1992 as an Operations Research and Systems Analyst at TRADOC Analysis Command at Ft. Leavenworth, KS.
He graduated from UMKC’s joint Law School and MBA Program in 1995, and joined the law firm of Shook, Hardy & Bacon, L.L.C., where he became partner and worked until his death.
He was past president of the Kansas Association of Defense Counsel, a member of the Defense Research Institute, and former president of the Earl E. O’Connor American Inn of Court.
His wife of 31 years, Jaime Theobald, and friends will work with the community and Forest Lake High School to chose an appropriate memorial to honor Rameden’s contributions to community and country.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Kassen and Luella Rameden.
A celebration of his life was Saturday, March 10 at D.W. Newcomer’s Sons Johnson County Chapel in Kansas. In addition to the local memorial fund, memorial contributions may also be made to Kansas Legal Services to support their pro bono work, or SHB’s Lawyers 4 Kids program.
